The Electric Piano: A Short History

The electric piano was invented by Harold Rhodes (1910‑2000) during the forties when he was in the army. The first instruments he built were made of aircraft pieces and were intended to entertain army servicemen.

The electric piano as we know it today grew out of a partnership between Harold Rhodes and Leo Fender who released a 32-note version of the instrument. But it is not until 1965, after the takeover of Fender by CBS, that the instrument really came to life when a 73-note model was released. From then different models were introduced including the Mark series as well as the two 88-note Suitcase and Stage models until 1984 when production ceased.

Harold Rhodes was not the only one to work on the electric piano. In the thirties, the inventor Ben Meissner had developed an electrostatic pickup design he used to amplify a conventional upright piano. The Wurlitzer company became interested in this idea but replaced the piano strings by metal reeds. In 1955, the EP-100 piano was released and followed by many other models until 1984.

The electric piano, with its distinctive sound, has marked the history or rock and jazz in the sixties and seventies. It has been popularised in thousands of songs by legendary musicians and bands such as Ray Charles, Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Supertramp and many others. In the recent years, the electric piano has enjoyed a resurgence through its extensive use in rock, jazz, fusion, hip hop, R&B, and house.

Authentic Tone, Action, And Feel, In An Easy To Use Interface

Lounge Lizard models the components of an electric piano: the hammer, the fork, the damper and the pickup.

All these elements have been carefully modelled in order to allow for a very accurate reproduction of the tone and dynamics of electric pianos resulting in an authentic recreation of their action and feel.

The engine also includes an EQ to shape the tone and an adjustable stereo tremolo, effects that were built-in with specific piano models.

Under The Hood

Hammer, tone, tine, pickup—Lounge Lizard is built around the modeling of real piano components. Custom pianos can be created with just a few tweaks, a job that took hours of painstaking work on real-life instruments.

  • Custom Tone – Famous players all had their own signature sound. This was achieved by tedious manual adjustments of forks, hammers and pickups. Whether you are looking to emulate a particular sound or simply find your own, you have direct access to all piano components.
  • Hammer – Control the attack with the hammer. Adjust the force of the impact, the stiffness of the hammer and the noise it makes. Modulate these across the whole keyboard range or depending on the MIDI velocity.
  • Fork – A sweet sound is produced when the hammer hits the fork. Control the tone and its envelope by selecting material and natural decay of the tone and tine bars forming the fork.
  • Pickup – Like in an electric guitar, a pickup near the fork captures its vibration. Adjust the pickup position and control distortion. Get a warm smooth tone or make your piano growl or bark.
  • Damper – Control how dampers are raised from or applied on the fork and make the attack and release of a note clean or noisy.
  • Tremolo – Adjust the tremolo to perfection. Use a triangle shape for a smooth effect or a soft square wave to obtain a chopped effect typical of suitcase pianos.

Everything You Need From Start To Finish

The feeling of playing a real instrument, live or in the Studio.

  • Playful – Direct access to key effect and piano parameters to perfectly match the tone to your performance. Play your piano through different cabinet, pre-amp, microphone, and recorder signal paths typically used with electric pianos.
  • Alive Beneath Your Fingers – There is something quite immersive when a connection develops between the player and the instrument. Whether it’s the perfectly smooth velocity progression or the interactive reaction to your performance, Lounge Lizard makes that connection happen.
  • Forks And Reeds – Electric piano players seem to be divided into two camps: tine-based or reed-based. Whatever the preferences both instruments have been popularised in thousands of songs by legendary musicians. With its extensive library of custom tones and its authentic playing feel, Lounge Lizard will provide you with a truly inspiring electric piano experience.
  • Find This Elusive Piano Tone – Lounge Lizard comes with an extensive library with 242 piano sound that are simply inspiring—giving you access to the classic electric piano sounds popularized by musical legends like Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, and George Duke. There is a choice of pure and true tones as well as a selection of processed ones courtesy of the high-end effect section.

From Authentic To Cleverly Produced

You’ll love the pure raw sound of Lounge Lizard EP‑4, but the built-in effects will bring it to so many places that you’ll enjoy having them on hand. And you have a chock-full of them to choose from: compressor, equalizer, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, wah wah and notch filters, and reverb.

  • Beyond Electric Piano – Whether it is through the use of strange effect combinations or setting the piano parameters to extreme values, Lounge Lizard can really become a wild beast. It retains the playability of a keyboard instrument but sounds beyond anything you have heard from an electric piano before.
  • Classic Track – The electric piano has marked the history or rock and jazz. The factory library showcases many presets designed around effects typically with pianos and reproducing the distinctive sound of classic tracks.
