Hammer, tone, tine, pickup—Lounge Lizard is built around the modeling of real piano components.

Everything you need from start to finish
Lounge Lizard comes with an extensive preset library that is simply inspiring—giving you access to the Rhodes and Wurlitzer 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.
Find this elusive piano tone
Electric piano players seem to be divided into two camps: Rhodes or Wurlies. 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.
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.
Under the hood
Forget about screwdrivers, wrenches, and solder irons. With Lounge Lizard, custom tuning that took hours is now just a few tweaks away.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Control how dampers are raised from or applied on the fork and make the attack and release of a note clean or noisy.
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.
Beyond electric piano
Weather 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.
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.”
