KEYSCAPE is an extraordinary new virtual instrument featuring the largest selection of collector keyboards in the world. Ten years in the making, each of these rare, sought-after keyboards was carefully restored and then deeply multisampled by the renowned Spectrasonics Sound Development Team. These compelling and highly expressive sounds will inspire you to PLAY!
The process began with going to the ends of the earth to find and restore each one of these rare and incredibly special instruments with the top technicians and expert craftsmen from each discipline. We even went as far as spending years redoing these instruments from scratch again and again until they were totally “right.
This incredible attention to detail and meticulous care given to each instrument allowed us to develop these sounds to a whole new level of authentic tone and inspiring playability and of course thats just the start of how these instruments can be transformed into amazing new sounds with the STEAM Engine!
The Custom Controls presented for each Patch allow you to go far beyond the original sound. The intuitive interface includes useful performance controls and high quality creative effects processing specially crafted for each Patch. Hundreds of included Patches showcase the remarkable versatility and ability to dramatically customize these iconic sounds to your music.
With many of these collector instruments, its really the imperfections that make them so interesting. Instead of cleaning up all the quirks and noises they make, we made sure to closely capture them since they are big part of their vibe. In addition to that, our software team closely modeled the authentic behavior and mojo of vintage amplifiers, classic effects units and unique subtleties like mechanical noises, pedal noises and release overtones to bring these sounds to a whole new level of authenticity and dynamic expression.
Hybrid "Duo" Sounds
Along with the hundreds of patches based on the 36 instrument models, Keyscape includes special hybrid "Duo" sounds, which combine two of the instruments to create something entirely new. The unique timbre of these Duo patches make them some of the most creative and inspiring sounds in Keyscape!
As a bonus for Omnisphere 2 users, Keyscape also integrates fully as a satellite instrument within the Omnisphere® interface. Keyscape will simply appear as a library inside Omnispheres browser for users of both plug-ins. This allows Omnisphere 2 users to harness the full synthesis power of the STEAM Engine® to explore endless new sonic possibilities and combinations!

Spectrasonic Keyscape Testbericht mit Thorsten Quaeschning von Tangerine Dream
Tangerine Dream Musical Director und Keyboardist Thorsten Quaeschning testet für euch das neue Plug in von Spectrasonics an.
Wir hatten eigentlich eine Sammlung der Standard Keyboards Sounds wie Rhodes, Piano und Flügel erwartet.
Aber Thorsten hat ein paar wirklich Perlen in den über 70 Gigabyte des Monster Plug ins gefunden.
Warum die so geil sind und das Plug in dann doch die volle Wertung erhalten hat und ein Kaufempfehlung geworden ist erfahrt ihr im Video.
MusoTalk Empfehlung mit 5 Punkten auf dem Thorsten´s MusoMeter
" Top Plug in mit aussergewöhlichen aber gut einsetzbaren Sounds, nicht nur von Rhodes, Steinway und Co."

Installation ging gut, aber für Anfänger etwas umständlich mit Download usw. Keyscape knackt leider in den Lautsprechern, liegt möglicherweise an der Systemeinstellung sagt Best Service. Werde ich einstellen im Apple nach Vorgabe oder Audio Interface
Absoluter Knaller! Mega realistisch, es macht mehr Spaß als je zuvor auf meinem 88-Tasten-Masterpiano auf diese Sounds abzugrooven, denn sie sind entweder verdammt realistisch in ihrer Spielweise und Verhaltensweise (dank Velocity-Curve-Editor auch individuell anpassbar an jegliche Klaviatur) oder sie sind verdammt inspirierend-innovativ in Sachen Sounddesign. Tolle neue Sounds aber auch super Klassikersounds, Collector Keyboards eben! Es trifft den Nagel auf den Kopf!
Would have great sounds but completely unacceptable CPU usage for PC platform (80-100%) even with System performance optimization - STREAM core needs urgent update for PC platforms!
