Once again, AAS raises the bar in the recreation of the classic electric pianos. Not only does Lounge Lizard EP-4 deliver the authentic tone of the originals, but it also preserves their action and feel. Once you get your hands on Lounge Lizard, that elusive electric piano sound becomes a vivid reality. Using award winning physical modeling technology, AAS has come up with refinements that take one of the most impressive and unanimously acclaimed software to another level.

Factory Library
The completely renewed factory library features the classic electric piano sounds as well as over 200 gig-and mix-ready custom electric pianos making good use of the compressor, equalizer, and multi-effect processor.

Compressor and Equalizer
These new additions are perfect to add punch and definition to your sound, letting you cut through any dense mix or stage.

Character Control
The new Character control provides five classic studio and stage signal path emulations –that's the cabinet, pre-amp, microphone, and recorder chain that follows the piano's output –to easily snug fit your electric piano part into your track.

The new output limiter protects your ears and monitors during experimentation with the piano's physical modeling parameters while providing a maximum of distortion-free dynamics.

Streamlined Interface
Redesigned from the ground up, the new interface now divides Lounge Lizard EP-4 into three panels: Play presents shortcuts to the main piano and effect parameters including bypass switches for quick edits; Edit lets you get under the hood and voice the piano to taste; while FX supplies equalizer, compressor, multi-effect, and reverb processors for final shaping duties.

Bank and Program Manager
Lounge Lizard EP-4's new manager allows the simple and efficient organization, backup, and sharing of your sounds.

Overhauled Effects
Reinvigorated, polished, and tuned especially for the electric piano, Lounge Lizard EP-4's multi-effect processor features AAS' best sounding chorus, delay, phaser, flanger, distortion, notch filter, wah-wah, auto-wah, and reverb to date.

Native 64-bit Audio Unit (AU) and VST Plug-Ins
Lounge Lizard EP-4 now runs in native 64-bit on Mac OS X and Windows making it compatible with the latest sequencers.
