[NE6] Program for Shining star - Earth Wind & Fire (Rhodes )

Postby judiedrake » 25 Jul 2019, 04:14

Hi !
I'm new on this forum ;)
I recently owned a new NE6 and downloaded XL Nefertiti.
I can't find the way to have a closer sound of the Rhodes on Shining Star soloing...
Do anyone have a leak or even better a program that could help me, please ?
Thank you very very much !!!
Valentina

Welcome!

I went and listened to the Earth, Wind and Fire version. I think it's a dyno-ed Rhodes, so try the dyno filter on a Mark V or similar. I also think I hear some chorus and/or flange. Hard to tell. Best of luck!

The song was recorded in 1974, several years before the Dyno Rhodes was ever a thing. It's a pretty straight ahead sound. Start with one of the Mark I pianos (EP2 Suitcase Close Ideal or EP8 Nefertiti). I would use EP2 myself, as the suitcase sample has the right amount of bite, specially with the new v6 sample. Nefertiti will work as well, but it's a bit grittier.

It's a pretty mid-range focused setting, so set your EQ or filter accordingly. It's also fairly dry, so go sparingly with the phaser, pan and/or reverb. I would start the Twin amp sim and just a bit of reverb and no other effect. Flavor according to your taste.

The magic in that sound is all in Larry Dunn's playing. The guy is a monster.
