By Mike MartinA new Rhodes EP for the PX-5S. A nice bell tell in this one without it being overwhelming. New settings for the phaser which I think sound pretty sweet.

By Mike MartinAnother new EP tone. A nice warm and rich ballad tine EP with a nice crisp high end. This version featuring a Phaser effect.

Slider 3 Phaser
By Mike MartinThese two Stage Settings include the incredible clav sounds on from the PX-5S, this time featured without the wah-wah effect. The Amp selector is still in place on slider 2 and speaker tone on slider 3 and of course distortion on slider 1 giving you incredible number of variations possible with just a few simple tweaks.

Gabriel CP - From Peter Gabriel's Wallflower
HeavyFuzzClav - From ELO's Evil Woman, works great for all dist Clav applications
Mix EQ EP - A Rhodes that takes up a very thin slice of the EQ spectrum, will work easily in a dense mix.

By Mike MartinUPDATED:

Stereo Tremolo is done using the Arpeggiator. If you want to turn it off just press the Arpeggiator button...no depth control sorry. But you can adjust speed with TEMPO.
New version with Phaser also attached.
By Mike MartinThis is a Rhodes preset that I originally made for "Riders on the Storm" by the Doors after listening to an isolated track. Then I also was able to spend some time with Larry Dunn and his Rhodes 88 side by side with the PX-5S and made some further adjustments. Slider 6 is the reverb amount. Pushing the Modwheel UP will disable the tremolo.
Version 2 added - Modwheel works "normal" and release time tweaked to make it snappier. Tone volume increased.
By Mike MartinI smooth and almost entirely sine wave based EP with a stereo panner.
By Mike MartinA new 5 velocity Wurlitzer sound with some extra bark at high velocities.
By Mike MartinA new Rhodes EP with some extra added bark. Collaborative effort between Mike Martin and Jerry Kovarsky. Since Jerry but the final touches on it, he gets his name on it.
V2 added with tremolo on the Modwheel.
By Mike MartinA set of three clavinet sounds with a different flavor than the stock ones. A dry, amped and wah-wah version included.
By Mike Martin2 Clav's with Phaser and 2 new pedal-wah variations inspired by Bernie Worell.
