Real Rhodes DNA

To capture that authentic Rhodes magic, we had to dive deep.

Stage-73 V2’s physical modeling sound engine offers an electric piano experience that’s so realistic, you’ll forget you’re playing a software instrument.

The Rhodes’ hammers struck metal tines of different lengths attached to a metal harp, essentially creating a huge polyphonic tuning fork responsible for the core trademark sound. Pickups like those in electric guitars transduced the vibrations and sent them to a preamp and tone-shaping circuits before finally going to an amp and speakers. In Stage-73 V, we’ve modeled the behavior of every single one of those components, output circuit and all, delivering completely faithful instruments that sound and play just like the ones that inspired them.

7 sound modes

Stage-73 V isn’t just one instrument - it’s many.

It encapsulates a range of Rhodes piano models, from Stage to Suitcase, ‘73 or ‘74, Classic to Modern, putting a huge range of hearty sounds at your disposal - luscious vibrato and all.
