The Wurlitzer V is a high end software recreation of the classic Wurlitzer 200A electric piano.
Unlike sample libraries, its physical modeling engine reproduces the very acoustic properties of reeds, key action and amplification, bringing you high realism while offering maximum flexibility on sound.
As most producers know, the legendary bright and overdriven Wurlitzer sound heard on classic records also comes from the use of fine amplifiers, micing and processing. This is why the Wurlitzer V goes further by putting you in command of a studio from the 70's, filled with vintage stompboxes and classic tube amps… everything you need to get a true classic vibe!
If you are looking for a lively electric piano combined with inspiring studio tools, the Wurlitzer V is the ultimate package.
The legendary Wurlitzer EP 200A was the high end model of the Wulitzer reed-based piano line. It was introduced in 1972 and produced until 1982.
Its sound was a little brighter than the Fender Rhodes when played softly and became more overdriven as the attack was more pronounced. This unique dynamic range, mainly due to tighter reeds, was very appreciated by funk players who could express their nuances and rhythmic playing.
The Wurlitzer quickly reached immense succes among pop and rock bands, where its thicker and rougher tone easily fit in the mix.
Favored by Supertramp ("The Logical Song"), the Beatles ("I am the Walrus"), Ray Charles ("What'd I say"), Marvin Gaye ("I Heard It Throught The Grapevine"), the Rolling Stones ("Miss You"), the Wurlitzer 200A was also reputed to make a great combination with tube amps, such as the Fender Bassman and Twin Reverb, because their nice overdrive and spring reverb contributed to opening the sound even more.
The 200A also accepted different effect units very well, such as analog chorus, phaser, tape echo, which were nice tricks to bring additional lushness and depth to the sound.
