“this is one of the best sampled Rhodes I’ve heard.. ”
“a supremely playable and dynamic instrument.”Read More
Not our words, but the words of Sound on Sound magazine. David Stewart tested Canterbury Suitcase for the uk based magazine, and found himself
“lost to the world for a few hours, happily improvising celestial harmonies on this supremely playable and dynamic instrument.”
He also observed that:
“I was immediately taken by its strong, pinging ‘bell’ attack, and pleased to find that both the attack and body tone remain consistent across the piano’s seven-octave range, with no dead notes, buzzes or volume dips — the mark of a well-maintained Rhodes.”
Thanks to David for another great review – read it in full here

This is an update to the original Glissandos script included in Scriptorium 10 years ago.
Steve Tavaglione got in touch asking if it was possible to set the length of a glissando precisely, in bars or seconds, and then have the glissando end on specific pitches. So we ended up turning the original glissando approach on it’s head, and targeting the played notes rather than starting from the played notes.
This means that the glissando will end it’s glide on the note you play. I call this “Destination Mode”.
In Destination Mode you can set the length of the glissando in Beats or Seconds, and the pitch distance (in semitones) from which to start the glissando.
The original method is still included as an option, you can choose with the switch at the top right. Origin Mode is the original method in which we start the glissando from the played notes and slide infinitely away from that at a variable rate.
The “Sustain Mode” option also at the top right simply tells the glissando algorithm to either respond to or to ignore the sustain pedal.
You can download the script here:

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
