I LOVE THE LIZARD

I have 3 or 4 plug-ins that emulate the Fender Rhodes sound....I played a real one for many years, and at too many gigs to remember....but I know how it should sound and how it should play.... When I saw this product on the internet, and heard the demos, I asked myself if I was stupid to buy yet another Rhodes plugin. Stupid I may be, cuz I put my money where my mouth (and fingers) are....but after owning this for a while, I am convinced that this is the BEST SOUNDING plug-in of the Rhodes sound, and is certainly my go-to plugin for that purpose. It's easy to use and has lots of "tweaks" to totally customize your sound.... I can only say two words: GET IT.

Best Electric Piano EVER

I used to use Logic as my DAW and it had a decent electric piano sound included in the package. You know Apple likes this sound because it is the default that is loaded when first creating a an instrument track. It's decent if not great. When I switched DAWs to Studio One 3, suddenly I had nothing at all for electric piano — nothing that sounded remotely like an electric piano, like a Fender/Rhodes or Wurlitzer. Nothing. I did a lot of research on the web and mostly came up empty. Then I stumbled on Lounge Lizard EP-4 and was tremendously impressed with their demo video on their website. The fear is always that it sounds great in their carefully produced demo but when you get it home it turns out to be lackluster. Normally it is about the quality of the samples and the interface and how you can tweak things to suit your playing style and/or project. Lounge Lizard is not sample based at all. Lounge Lizard sounds absolutely amazing. This is BEST IN CLASS and if you want electric piano sounds that are better than the real thing, buy Lounge Lizard EP-4. You will find that you should have paid more, it's just that good. If you want the best electric piano sounds that are a joy to play and sound amazing in your tracks, sounds that are fantastic as presets and extremely easy to tweak, you want this. If you need electric piano sounds you need look no further, this is by far the best.

Same great sounds without the weight

I own a Mark I stage 88 key Rhodes, and a Wurli, both in excellent condition and I love playing them. However, as everyone who owns these vintage keyboards knows, they are BEASTS to move around. The Yamaha Motif's electric piano samples are decent, but those keyboards while not as heavy as a Rhodes or Wurli are still heavy as sin. The Nord's electric piano samples are better than Yamaha's in my opinion, and I really love Nord keyboards, but they are expensive as sin. So, not liking the options of spending a whole lot of money, or spending a whole lot of money and still having a heavy keyboard to move around, I looked in the virtual instrument realm, found this software and figured why not? Well, after about a month and a half of use, this is definitely one of the best decisions/purchases I've made. Nord who? The software is very user friendly, the presets are incredible, and the amount of sounds and ability to customize them puts this over the top. Not to mention that it takes up almost no space on my laptop's hard drive. It doesn't matter what controller (Casio CDP 100 or M-Audio 49 Key Keystation) I use with it, once I hear the sounds through my amp if I'm playing live or in the headphones if I'm recording, it's as if I'm sitting behind my Rhodes or Wurli and I don't have to worry about moving the instrument to and from the gig. Can't compliment Applied Acoustics enough for this one. Now if only they'd sponsor me.

Nothing in the Industry competes with this

I'd love to give this program an Eleven. Unless you have an actual Rhodes or Wurli, you won't find anything better for bringing that true, warm, rich EP sound into your own recording projects. This is a pro, polished sound, with all the bells and whistles. I am continually amazed at how this compares to some of the high quality samples I have in other formats (outboard modules, soft synths). I thought I had great sounds before, but Lounge Lizard EP-4 exceeds my best hopes. The programming and editing are very simple and straight-forward. You get a visual display of Rhodes-style control knobs, and easily selected pages for editing and effects. It's almost idiot-proof, to be honest. And since it's physical modeling instead of sample-based, it loads instantly. Select your favorite preset, or tweak the knobs for something completely new, and that's all there is to it. I can't praise this product highly enough. I can only say that if you want genuine, authentic EP in your mix, this is the best thing there is next to the actual instruments themselves.

Lounge Lizard EP-4

I've always loved Lounge Lizard sounds so I'm really happy to be using them again. The install was so easy, and you don't have to spend hours loading up a space consuming library of samples due to the physical modeling. The interface is easy and logical to use. The sounds are as good as ever. Love it!
