Studio Wurli 

The 8Dio Studio Vintage Series Wurli is the most comprehensively deep-sampled Wurlitzer ever created. It was recorded and processed at 24-Bit / 96Khz at Scotland’s Premiere Recording Studio, Gorbals Sound, through a large custom NEVE desk. The Studio Wurli contains both standard (Sustains and Staccato w/ RR) and prepared (Muted Tines) articulations. We also opened the Wurlitzer and recorded the internal mechanics, including gently muting the tines for a different type of sound and recording the internal speaker separately. 

The microphones include Neumann 87’s, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon’s, AKG 414’s, Neumann KM 184’s and a mixed microphone position, which was made by combining all 24 microphones used in the sessions. We also recorded all samples through two world-class reverbs (Bricasti and TC-Electronics 6000), so you have the best microphones and reverbs right at your fingertips. The Studio Wurli also includes full control over velocity response, tremolo depth and rate controls, authentic resonance, release triggers, pedal volume, analog noise control, and full ADSR controls. 




Deep Options

What sets the Vintage Studio Wurli apart from competitors is not just the great recordings, programming, or stunning lay-out, but also the wealth of features that allow you to dial in precisely the sound you want. You can control the dynamic feel of the piano with a single click, resonance, Pick Ups, phase relationship, ADSR, or even the sounds of fingers on the keys.

Superior Reverbs

We sampled the Studio Wurli through two of the best studio reverbs in the world: TC6000 and Bricasti. The reverbs can be activated with a single click and gives you instant access and control over the two reverbs that have defined studio reverbs more than anything else. We sampled the Studio Wurli using a pristine signal path designed by some of the world's best engineers.

World-Class Microphones

The Studio Wurli gives you access to the best studio microphones, including Neumann u87’s, KM 184’s, Neve SE Ribbons, Royers, and AKG 414’s, all capturing a vintage VOX Amplifier, a pristine MESA Boogie Amplifier, a variety of internal mechanics, and built-in speakers. Along with the mixed microphone option, you also have access to DI Clean, DI Crush, and DI Warm.
