If you're looking for a virtual electric piano, this is the one.
We took the most versatile electric piano plug-in to another level—it's our best sounding release to date.
The completely renewed factory library features the classic Rhodes and Wurlitzer sounds as well as over 240 gig- and mix-ready custom electric pianos making good use of the compressor, equalizer, and multi-effect processor.
These new additions are perfect to add punch and definition to your sound, letting you cut through any dense mix or stage.
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.
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.
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.
Lounge Lizard EP-4's new manager allows simple and efficient organization, backup, and sharing of your sounds.
Reinvigorated, polished, and tuned especially for the electric piano, Lounge Lizard EP-4's multi-effect processor features our best sounding chorus, delay, phaser, flanger, distortion, notch filter, wah-wah, auto-wah, and reverb to date!
Lounge Lizard EP-4 now supports the Scala scale file format for microtonal music making.
Lounge Lizard EP-4 now runs in native 64-bit on Mac OS X and Windows making it compatible with the latest sequencers.

The feeling of playing a real instrument
Electric piano players seem to be divided into two camps: Rhodes or Wurlies. Whatever the preferences both instruments have been popularised in thousands of songs by legendary musicians. With its extensive library of custom tones and its authentic playing feel, Lounge Lizard will provide you with a truly inspiring electric piano experience.
There is something quite immersive when a connection develops between the player and the instrument. Whether it's the perfectly smooth velocity progression or the interactive reaction to your performance, Lounge Lizard makes that connection happen.
Forget about screwdrivers, wrenches, and solder irons. With Lounge Lizard, custom tuning that took hours is now just a few tweaks away.
Famous players all had their own signature sound. This was achieved by tedious manual adjustments of forks, hammers and pickups. Whether you are looking to emulate a particular sound or simply find your own, you have direct access to all piano components.
Control the attack with the hammer. Adjust the force of the impact, the stiffness of the hammer and the noise it makes. Modulate these across the whole keyboard range or depending on the MIDI velocity.
A sweet sound is produced when the hammer hits the fork. Control the tone and its envelope by selecting material and natural decay of the tone and tine bars forming the fork.
Like in an electric guitar, a pickup near the fork captures its vibration. Adjust the pickup position and control distortion. Get a warm smooth tone or make your piano growl or bark.
Control how dampers are raised from or applied on the fork and make the attack and release of a note clean or noisy.
Adjust the tremolo to perfection. Use a triangle shape for a smooth effect or a soft square wave to obtain a chopped effect typical of suitcase pianos.
You’ll love the pure raw sound of Lounge Lizard EP-4, but the built-in effects will bring it to so many places that you’ll enjoy having them on hand.
And you have a chock-full of them to choose from: compressor, equalizer, delay, distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger, wah wah and notch filters, and reverb.
Weather it is through the use of strange effect combinations or setting the piano parameters to extreme values, Lounge Lizard can really become a wild beast. It retains the playability of a keyboard instrument but sounds beyond anything you have heard from an electric piano before.
The electric piano has marked the history or rock and jazz. The factory library showcases many presets designed around effects typically with pianos and reproducing the distinctive sound of classic tracks.
