OSC Audio – Dusty Rings Keys

Dusty Rings Keys is a completely free, virtual piano instrument designed to give you an authentic lofi sound. OSC Audio created the instrument using physical modelling with the Mutable Instruments Rings synthesizer  and sent through a Marantz PMD221 cassette player for signal degradation and added grit and hiss.

Moreover, OSC wanted to give you an instrument that offers infinite sustain while designing the lofi instrument, so samples are therefore looped perfectly, making them easy to work with in any sampler.

Furthermore, OSC Audio’s Dusty Rings Keys gives you a full range of keys to work with. Starting with A1 through to C7, this lofi piano is not limited in terms of expression. And included chorus and reverb effects allow you to give your lofi sound space and width before using third party plugins. You can also utilize DAW automation and modulate any of the instruments’ parameters over time for detailed, expressive control.

Dusty Rings Keys offers a number of controls, such as attack & release times, an onboard filter with resonance controls in addition to the effect controls. Here, you’ll find separate controls for chorus depth & rate as well as a chorus dry/wet (mix) knob above similar controls for reverb mix, size & dampening.

Moreover, a collection of presents are presented in neat browser and you’ll find global controls for volume & tuning at the top of the plugin.
