To win it, and let’s be clear, this is the REAL THING worth around £3000 on ebay, all you have to do is go to the SOS site and answer some questions about our Electro-Acoustic drum instrument, which is actually EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING, which SOS agreed with too in their review.

Since it’s release at the beginning of August 2017, we have been stunned by the response to this instrument. Here’s what Canterbury users have been saying:Read More
“ For me it sounds like the Rhodes recordings I have done, without all the time required to set up a real instrument. The quality and detail of the amp recording means I don’t need to waste time with amp sims. This is excellent.” – Gearslutz Forum
“I’m just stunned by how great this is. I’ve been using Neo Soul for a while, and the Canterbury Suitcase is over the top. 21-25 velocities is better than any other Rhodes I’ve seen. .. just exquisite.” Gearslutz Forum
“I have more than a few virtual Rhodes, but this one is outstanding: I caved and am being richly rewarded for doing so.” VI Control
“This is without a doubt the best Rhodes sim. on the planet. This is 100% my old Rhodes. Even the pedal functions are accurate. “ Jason Reimer, via email
‘I bought it. Love the thunk and the fact Brass Cap 414s were used to record it.” VI Control
“Game over. This is The One! As of this weekend, this library has kicked ALL of my other Rhodes libraries to the curb forever. This one lives and breathes likes the real thing. So much more life to it, at ANY setting.” Mark Schmeider, Motu NationClose Close

We’re pleased to announce the release of Electro-Acoustic, a new drum VI which offers a new angle on classic drum machine sounds.Read More
It has been something of a labour of love for us, as the scope of the instrument grew over 18 months, incorporating forensic line-level sampling of 15 different drum machines, and then two separate studio sessions, 6 months apart, to try to get the right results.
We think the results were worth it – it’s probably the most complex Kontakt instrument we have created, with a ‘matrix’ of channels that all work together and a deep editing system giving huge control over sound design.
The three sequencers turn it from ‘just’ an instrument into a very useful compositional tool, with intelligent tools like Euclidean Beats to provide solid, tight beats and the new Poly Beats tool to take your track into weird rhythmic spaces.
