Propellerheads Abbey Road Keyboards ReFill at a Glance:
Seven Classic Instruments
The instruments included in the Abbey Road Keyboards ReFill are a classic assortment of instruments that reside at Abbey Road. There's a Steinway Upright lovingly dubbed the "Mrs. Mills Piano" with lacquered hammers for a tack piano-esque sound. The Challen Studio Piano offers a uniquely long sustain. The Hammond RT-3 complete with a Leslie Model 122 provides legendary Hammond tone, while the Mannborg Harmonium is a reed organ with a split keyboard. The Mellotron MKII evokes the sounds of "Strawberry Fields Forever." Rounding up the instruments in Abbey Road Keyboards are a pair of bell-like instruments, the Schiedmayer Celeste with quiet yet psychedelic-tinged tones, and Tubular Bells, like the ones heard in the Beatle's "When I'm 64."
The Abbey Road Keyboards were recorded using the original mics, outboard and vintage mixing desk from Abbey Road's Studio Two, re-creating not only the sound of the instruments themselves, but the very signal paths, technology, and recording techniques that is the Abbey Road sound. Each instrument was captured using multiple microphones placed at different locations in Studio Two's beautiful sounding recording space, allowing for full ambience control in Reason.
40-page full color booklet
Enclosed in the Abbey Road Keyboards ReFill box is "Guide to Abbey Road Keyboards", a 40-page booklet by author by Mark Vail. Jam-packed with full color pictures and descriptive session diagrams, this book gives you in-depth info on the featured instruments and the Abbey Road technology used to record them.

That Beatles Vibe
by S Pearson from Raleigh, NCGot this collection a year ago and though it's not used everyday, it's one of my main tools. Don't let other reviews fool you, these samples are in tune but have character that synthheads won't 'get'... read more [+]. A great way to add a realistic sound to overly electronic compositions. I love it, warts and all! Perfect for that earthy, warm Beatles vibe. close [-]

Waste of Time?
by K. Osborne from OklahomaOkay, well, let me start off by saying the quality of these keyboards and organs are great. A friend of mine bought these and we tried them out. They're sampled well, and they are very cool. HOWEVER..... read more [+].they're out of tune? I understand that it's the signature "Abbey Road" sound, but for practical purposes, what good is this collection other than for the organ? The only time when these pianos sound really cool is if they are a solo instrument. If they're played with ANY other instrument, the tuning of these pianos gets in the way and sounds awful. If it's a solo instrument, or perhaps playing with only a bassist and a drummer, it'd probably work, but practically...it's just unusable. close [-]
