Hohner Clav inet – Feel The Funk

Future Music - - REVIEWS -

The Hohner Clavinet was orig­i­nally in­tended as a mod­ern, elec­tric ver­sion of the clavi­chord (which it­self was smaller and qui­eter ver­sion of the harp­si­chord). De­spite the first model – which fea­tured a built-in amp and speaker – be­ing less than suc­cess­ful, the Clavinet went on to be­come one of the essen­tial key­boards of the 1970s (par­tic­u­larly, though not ex­clu­sively, in the realms of full-on funk). Ar­turia’s Clavinet V makes use of phys­i­cal mod­el­ling, rather than sam­ples, and al­lows the in­clu­sion of ad­vanced edit­ing con­trols to tweak the phys­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics of the key­board.
