Electric Keys from MOTU is a cross-platform virtual instrument that includes the sounds of fifty, classic vintage electric keyboard instruments. The 40GB sound library consists of over 20,000 multi-samples, most of which were recorded with 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Legendary electric pianos, electric organs, clavinets, Wurlitzers, tape samplers, string machines, keyboard basses and other rare and exotic electric keyboard instruments are all represented.

The software allows the user to load, save and combine factory or custom presets, and use the included virtual effects rack to combine, apply and save chained multi-effects, including chorus, reverb, delay and more. Advanced software features include MIDI control of nearly all parameters, 256-note polyphony per instrument, ultra-low latency, efficient disk streaming for fast preset loading, and the UVI Engine for superb sound quality.

Electric Keys supports all major plug-in formats on Mac OS X and Windows XP and Vista, including VST, DXi, MAS, Audio Units and RTAS. It also runs as a stand-alone application, turning any laptop or desktop computer into the ultimate electric keyboard instrument. Additionally, the sounds can be loaded into MOTU's MachFive software sampler for convenient, consolidated operation with other sound libraries.
