Radical Keys from Propellerhead is a rack extension for Reason that is designed to be a professional-sounding, straightforward, and flexible virtual electric piano. Radical Keys combines sample playback with cutting edge physical modelling to generate realistic-quality sounds and a seamless dynamic response with the freedom to tweak sounds in any direction. The instrument features sympathetic resonance, which means that any undamped tines or reeds with ring along with the currently played notes (tines/reeds), bringing a new dimension to the sound.

Note: Note: Rack Extensions are only available for single-user licenses. This means that if you are a school/institution and have a multi-license for Reason, you will not be able to try, purchase, or install Rack Extensions

Radical Keys Features Electric Pianos

  • Rhodes: This is a Rhodes Mk I Seventy-Three. The Rhodes uses steel tines in combination with electromagnetic pickups to generate its sound. The tines and pickups can be mechanically adjusted to achieve different sound characters. This particular Rhodes was adjusted to the “old school” sound with that nice “barking” effect when played at high velocities. The Rhodes sound usually blends in very well with other instruments in the mix

  • Wurlitzer: The famous Wurlitzer 200A has a brighter and more “hollow” sound than the Rhodes, especially when played at high velocities. This makes the Wurly often stand out nicely in the mix. The Wurlitzer uses steel reeds together with electrostatic pickups to generate its sound

  • Pianet: This is a Hohner Pianet T. The Pianet T uses steel reeds in combination with electro-magnetic pickups. Instead of hitting the reeds, the reeds are activated by sticky silicon rubber activation pads that are pulled from the reeds, causing them to vibrate. The same activation pads then work as dampers when the keys are released. The Pianet T does not feature any active electronics so the output signal has to be amplified, for example, by a guitar amplifier
