The Fender Rhodes Mark II is a Model of 1981 ans has the serial number 785144. The Wurlitzer Model 200a is 113559L. These 2 electric pianos are “in juice” and haven’t modifications. Only a tuning and tines settings have been made. These 2 vintage keyboards were sampled thru DI box and recorded with MOTU Ultralite Pre Amp Mic in 44Khz, 24bits. Each note was played at 8 to 11 different velocities (from ppp to fff). Then they were cut, looped and converted for Motif.
A01 to B16 : 32 «RHODES MARK II» Voices
C01 to D16 : 32 «WURLITZER» 200a Voices
E01 to E16 : 16 «RHODITZER» Voices (a hybrid of two previous electric pianos. This sound is exclusively available in this collection.)
These voices are not only a mix of the two collections “Rhodes Mark II” & “Wurlitzer 200a” by KeyboardWaves. All original samples were all « re-looped » and have a long natural sustain. All Waveforms are in 44,1Khz Now. Starting patchs were completely reworked to improve the similarity with the originals. Furthermore, against 8 voices, the collection has got 80 voices now. You can also play with the Rhoditzer a «hybrid» electric piano.
Each voice was carefully edited to provide realism ever seen. The velocity (the key of realism) has been worked enormously. I recommend also to change the motif velocity curve to “hard” via the utility menu to approximate the same sensations as on older keyboards.
- Each note has got a release sound («key off») on part4.
- Sustain is extended.
- High notes (from LA6) of Wurlitzer haven’t damper.
CONTROLLERS (for most voices)
- Assign1 potentiometer recreates the old potentiometers FX : BASS BOOST for Rhodes & VIBRATO for Wurlitzer.
- Assign2 potentiometer «boost» high frequency for clean bell sound.
- Modulation Wheel (MW) send to Chorus FX.
- Ribbon send to Reverb FX.

Many users of the MOTIF XS wrote me to convert the new samples of “Rhoditzer” Special Edition although some sounds would not have the GTR FX. Since the update 1.5 of MOTIF XF, the FX generator has the GTR FX which is not present in the MOTIF XS. So, some voices, produced with this effect, should not be totally restored.
This “converted” version for the Motif XS is above all, made to have the new “extended” samples.
