Uprights & EPs

$149.00

Uprights and EPs is a stack of 11 of our favorite vintage electric pianos and uprights from the studio. We hammered the strings, we added felt to the upright, we put overhead mics on electric keys, we left one piano a little out of tune, and we even sampled the chorus on one of our favorite old keyboard synths. Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer 200A, Yamaha CP 70-B & CP-30, and 3 different upright pianos give you the tools you need to create inventive new tones. Real instruments in real spaces with all the functionality of a synthesizer with full effects.

Tech Specs

  • 4 Plugin Types: AU, AAX, VST3, and standalone app
  • 11 Sampled Classic electric pianos, Uprights, and Felted Upright Grand
  • 3,004 samples
  • Onboard Mixing faders for all Instruments

Uprights & EPs

When we were on the road, we missed all those old keyboards and real pianos that were sitting back in the studio, collecting dust.  We decided it was time to put all our favorite piano sounds in one place, Uprights and EPs.

Vintage keys, uprights, tube preamps, ribbon mics, large diaphragm condenser mics, and a few special overhead mic and felt techniques later, we developed a product that contains 11 of our favorite sounds, sampled on every single note, at 3-5 unique velocities.  Use them as solo instruments or blend them in infinite configurations to create brand new hybrid tones.

A fully customizable arpeggiator gives these analog tones the functionality of a synthesizer with all the character and electric and acoustic piano instruments.  Shape the tone with AHDSR and a filter of your choice before it hits 3 custom shaped LFO’s: Gain, Pitch, and Filter. Finish crafting your sound with 5 onboard effects.

Uprights and EPs was created by artists to use on their own projects, for artists, so it’s tailor made to maximize your creative potential.

Uprights & EPs

Uniquely Sampled

There are so many sampled instruments on the market made to replicate that instrument as if it were brand new and out of the box. We’ve used a lot of them and have found them to be useful.

We want something different. We want the grit, the fretbuzz, the subtle clank of the hammer on string. We embrace the imperfections. We want the vibrations of sound wandering in and out of phase and tune. We also made the decision not to skip any notes when we sampled these instruments, so what you get on each key is the full scope of that instrument’s sonic integrity, without pitch shifting to save time.

Nightfox Audio bring this uniqueness. Our plugins bring sound combinations no one has ever heard before, while staying true to the organic nature of each instrument.

Creative Layer Options

There’s something really special about stacking these organic tones on top of each other, and some of the combinations we’ve discovered are incredibly fresh. Use each sound layer as a solo instrument or blend them in infinite configurations to create brand new hybrid tones. We can’t wait to hear the unique sounds you create with Nightfox Audio.

Custom Artist Presets

We’ve worked with some of the most creative and inspiring creatives in the industry to bring you unique artist presets. Mark your favorites, create your own, and share with others.

“I love the Nightfox Audio plug-ins! They’re visually stunning and super intuitive! The sampling is some of the best I’ve heard so using the sounds doesn’t feel any different than my live instruments. All of the effects and modulation could be used by somebody who has no idea what they even do so it’s easy to come up with new textures on the fly!"

"The beauty of Nightfox Audio sounds is immediately apparent but what makes this platform so unique is the way it inspires originality. The interface pushes me to be more creative and takes me places sonically where I would never have gone without it - it’s like I’m being nudged towards innovation."

"Whether I’m spitballing raucous alternative beats for Club Danger, laying down the low end with Vyceroy, or painting ambient soundscapes as Brique a Braq, Nightfox has become my go-to source for inspiration. I love the flexibility of blending a tremendously wide palette of sounds that I otherwise wouldn’t have thought would play well together. And then arpeggiating it? This fox is truly fantastic. "

"I absolutely love the Nightfox Audio plug-in set! They're instantly cool and fresh sounding, and because of the multi-variability and power of the plug-in, no two people would ever come up with the same ideas.  An instant multi stack of colors and tones with so much control. Beat creation is sick. Every time I pull it up I'm off book and really fresh."

"Nightfox Audio has done it! These sounds are so compelling and make me want to write a new song with each new plugin. My favorites are the felt piano, the strings, and some of the atmospheric keys. You’ll be hearing a lot of these sounds on my future projects!"

"The visual representation of what is happening sonically helps me understand what is happening when I turn knobs. For a songwriter that’s never been trained in musical production or studio work, the interface provides me with both instruction AND inspiration. It's powerful yet simple, and it allows me to stay wrapped up in the extraordinary landscapes without being weighed down by complicated technicalities."

"There is a sample behind every note of chromatic instruments, as you mix the sample banks to come up with your own piano sound even note to note it sounds like integrity. The interface is intuitive for a demo studio and powerful enough for a seasoned producer. Demo Nightfox and I told you, I TOLD YOU!"
