The piano section features state-of-the-art acoustic pianos, vintage electric pianos, and vintage keyboard sounds, with all the nuance and detail of the actual instruments. The Stage 2's organ section delivers a full polyphony tone-wheel organ for faithful simulations of the classic Farfisa, Vox and B3 organs.
