Yamaha CP-35 Free Ableton Live Rack

Previously introduced on Vst Cafe - Free Ableton Live Rack: Korg Monotron by AfroDJMac seems pretty popular so it's time for another interesting freebie: Yamaha CP-35 Ableton Live Rack.

The Yamaha CP-35 is a pretty cool vintage electric piano. Made sometime in the 1970s or 80s this instrument has a wide range of tone, sometimes reminiscent of the Fender Rhodes keyboards. Probably my biggest gripe about this keyboard is its size. The thing is huge and heavy. Cleverly, the case transforms into legs, but lugging this baby around to gigs is pretty much out of the question. Fortunately, it now fits in your laptop. The original model has flanger and tremolo effects, which I have attempted to emulate. I’ve also added some chorus, vibrato, and delay to add some flavor to it. The CP-35 is capable of a fairly wide range of electric piano sounds, and I have sampled five offerings. So the next time you need a nice dreamy vintage piano sound reminiscent of “Daniel” by Elton John, or a Stevie Wonder-esque funk piano, load up the AfroDJMac CP-35 rack.

Some eastern friends gave me this two ton monster and I cant seem to figure out how to get a normal piano sound out of the damn thing. What do I do?
