Authentic Reed Sound

Wurly is a plugin emulation of the famous Wurlitzer electric pianos from the 60s and 70s. Faithfully capturing the distinct, soulful tone and dynamic feel of the original instruments, this emulation includes both the classic 200 and the refined 200A models.

Wurly provides a comprehensive set of controls for shaping the electric elements of the sound, including pickup emulation, envelope settings, and the iconic built-in tremolo (historically mislabeled as ‘Vibrato’). The geometry of the pickup and reed has been precisely modeled to ensure maximum authenticity. The electric section uses physical modeling techniques to capture the true behavior and sound of the original instruments.

It also offers detailed control over the mechanical aspects, such as hammer, key, pedal noises, and clank section. The Mechanical section uses both physical models and samples to fine-tune each nuance of the piano’s character, adding depth and realism to the emulation.

We have also carefully sampled the speakers on each model so you can blend the direct sound with the speaker sound.

Wurly is available for MAC, PC, and LINUX (VST, VST3, AU, AAX, CLAP, 64-bit only), and also as AUv3 and Standalone on the App Store.

Wurlitzer Pianos

Introduced in 1968, the Wurlitzer 200 electric piano marked a significant design evolution with its sleek, contemporary style and built-in chrome legs. Known for its vibrant, versatile sound—from soft, bell-like tones to aggressive, biting notes—the 200 series used an electromechanical method where hammers strike metal reeds, and the vibrations are picked up by electrostatic pickups.

The upgraded Wurlitzer 200A, released in the early 1970s, improved upon its predecessor with better electrical noise shielding, enhanced action for more expressive play, and upgraded speakers for a warmer sound.

Popular across various music genres from rock to soul, the Wurlitzer electric pianos remain iconic for their unique timbre and enduring presence in both classic recordings and modern tracks.

The Emulation

We have combined physical modeling techniques for both the electric and mechanical sections with high-quality samples, specifically for the mechanical components, to faithfully recreate the iconic sounds of the Wurlitzer 200 and 200A electric pianos.

This hybrid approach ensures that each nuance of the original instruments’ tone and response is captured, delivering an authentic and dynamic playing experience.

Also available on iOS

Wurly is available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store, as a AUv3 plugin and Standalone (IAA).
