Presets
    Retro Clavinet
  • Clean Funk: Run through a classic amp model, a 4x12 cabinet combined with a tape simulator and a spring reverb
  • Classic Wah: A classic sound for any riff-driven song. This setting includes compression, amp/cab simulation, delay and wah-wah
  • Dirty Fuzz: A distorted sound saturated with reverb, various amp/cam simulation and a knob for an optional phaser effect
  • Filter Funk: A round but bright staccato-like sound that brings you right back to the golden age of funk in the 70s. Wah-wah and tape delay
  • Guitar Like: Just like the name implies, this preset brings out the Clavinet's string-sound. For rhythmic passages or guitar-like riffs
  • Modern Ballad: Tremolo, inverse reverb and a subtle chorus
  • CA DI: The factory CA direct in setting
  • CB DI: The factory CB direct in setting
  • DA DI: The factory DA direct in setting
  • DB DI: The factory DB direct in setting

    Retro Pianet
  • Clean Amp: A quite unfiltered signal amplified by a low-gain amp and a classic 4x12 cabinet
  • DI: Direct in signal with optional knobs for tremolo settings
  • Dirty Amp: A stomp box and a vintage amp give this preset an extra gritty sound or leads, staccato-playing or general riffing
  • Dream Vibrato: classic amp and a 1x8 speaker simulation together with vibrato and spring reverb produce a distinctly distorted, very vintage and organ-like sound
  • Hi Gain Distortion: A slightly muffled sound with a roll-off on the highs
  • Jazz Bells: Tremolo and bright reverb, this setting brings out the bell-like sound in the Pianet
  • Phase Fuzz: With its strong fuzz and phaser saturation, this sound almost elevates in the stereo field
  • Rotary: A relatively clean sound that combines a classic cabinet with a delicate room reverb
  • Smooth Funk: Wah-wah, classic amp/cab combo, tape delay and moderate compression
  • Space Ballad: A tremolo-driven sound perfect for any ambient composition
