The Sonic goes much further than offering a new sound library for just the keyboard manuals. You also have access to a new library of accompaniment sounds that have been created for the most fantastic sound! Furthermore, these exclusive sounds have been perfected with insert effects for even greater sound satisfaction!
When the Sonic was created, WERSI wanted to bring a new generation of new and fresh styles to the world. Naturally some of the best of the OpenArt-Arranger styles have been included, but a whole new Accompaniment library has been created for the Sonic. The Sonic features a new OpenArt-Arranger (Accompaniment Editor) with new functionality and Style options.
4 Variations, 4 x Fills, 2 x Breaks and 3 x Intro / Endings are standard for the Sonic with real Rhythm Controls on the left hand of the console.
WERSI first revealed their Realdrum system to the world in 2001. Since then, the format was only updated in 2006 with the introduction of the OpenArt-Arranger. Now, while other manufacturers are introducing Audio Styles that are only of the quality that WERSI introduced a decade ago, the new Sonic has an all new Audio Style system that has no rival!
We make this bold claim because it's true. The development masters at WERSI have created a Real Audio Style format that means that the Audio doesn't end at the end of a bar. For example, if your Style is 8 bars long and features a cymbal crash on the last beat of the last bar, old Realdrums would stop the loop at the end of the bar count. The new WERSI Audio Style format allows the audio to play on! This means that real Cymbals and Drum sounds are captured in their full and detailed length!
No other keyboard or software offers this detail of realism! Furthermore, you can also combine Audio Styles with standard styles for even more sound possibilities!
The new Audio Styles have been created by the best drummers and musicians / studio producers. Using an 11 drum mic setup (Near field mics and stereo room mics were all used), the drums were then mastered by top producers for the most incredible results. The new accompaniments have been programmed by world leading style programmers who have a history with the big japanese keyboard manufacturers as well as professional recording studios! The new generation of Audio Styles include Ballad, Rock, Latin, BigBand, Swing Pop, Dance, Techno, World Styles and more!
