Have you ever spent hours trying to find the perfect Fender Rhodes? Yes the ones in Ableton's library are very good, but I recently discovered this little beauty, and most of all it is completely free. Not only is it free but it also comes with a host of other vintage keyboards from the 1970's hence the name of the plug in.
The Keys of the 70's is a free VST Plug in sampler that has perfectly captured the vibe of a 1973 Fender Rhodes keyboard. It also boasts a very well programmed upright Piano and other string machine synths.
There is even a drum machine added too. But the main stay is the Rhodes, it has beautiful tonality and with a few tweaks such as adding some release and a bit of tremolo you can really play this on your controller like a real one but without the heaviness of the keys. Using a foot pedal for sustain also adds a smooth feel if you have one.
It is a simple DLL file once you have downloaded it and all you have to do is place the pre set files into a folder of your choice and load them accordingly. It is a hassle free plug in and one which has been produced with a labour of love.
Check the video below and also follow the link below for the direct link for the plug in files.
