The Key9 is pretty convincing to say the least. I can hear the ivory keys slapping wood. Rich and full sounding the Key9 supplies a healthy dose of upper and lower harmonics.

Dynamo, which is preset one emulates a modified 70s/80s Fender Rhodes. Ctrl 1 adds bass and Ctrl 2 adjusts the tine sound (that bell-like tone at the attack of the note). The Wurlitzer is sharp and smooth with Ctrl 1 adjusting the tremolo depth and Ctrl 2 the speed. The Suitcase circles back to a Fender Rhodes, this time played through a phaser. Ctrl 1 adds a bass octave while simultaneously tweaking the tine overtones, and Ctrl 2 determines the phaser speed.

Preset 4 is Mallets which emulates the sound of a wood marimba and quite well I might add. The Ctrl 1 adjusts chorus depth and Ctrl 2 the speed. Next up is the Eighty-Eight, conjuring the soul of a Fender Rhodes 88 electric piano, this time with tremolo. Ctrl 1 adjusts depth and Ctrl 2 speed. Preset 6 is the Tri-Glorious. A funky sound based on a Dytronics/Dyno with a chorus effect. Ctrl 1 adjust the depth and Ctrl controls the rate. On to the Vibes, for which Ctrl 1 adjusts the timbre of the attack and Ctrl 2 the tremolo rate.

The organ sounds great, very warm and smooth. It's quite touch-responsive, and is treated with a rotary speaker effect. Ctrl 1 adjusts the treble and Ctrl 2 adjusts the mod speed. And lastly Preset 9 is steel drums with chorus. You'll be wisped away on some beach in Jamaica with a fruitty drink in one hand and the guitar in the other. It's realistic but I'm not sure how often you'll need to use the steel drums unless you're in a reggae band. Ctrl 1 adjusts the mod depth and Ctrl 2 the speed.
