Tines emulates an electric piano. With internal effects like a stereo tremolo, a multiband distortion panel and a subtle roomy reverb Tines can sound like anything between a dreamy slick Rhodes to a nasty Wurlitzer. A finetuned velocity curve makes it a joy to play Tines on an external keyboard.

• New preset system allowing users to save presets in standalone mode. If you’ve saved presets in AUv3 mode, these will be synced after the first launch in AUv3 mode. OBS! Due to some technical issues, earlier saved presets will vanish. We recommend saving the presets in any AU host before doing the update, and then re-save them after update.
• A minor bug that occured when using the sustain pedal in combination with playing a lot of notes is now fixed.
Ratings and Reviews
Straightforward electric piano AU with tiny file size!
I was tempted to give Tines 4 stars because it is somewhat limited in the variety of sounds it can produce. But I didn't because Klevgrand have made a lot of great effects apps, and Tines does exactly what it's advertised to do - nothing less. The three-band EQ allows you to dial in warm or tinny piano sounds, and you can control the vibrato effect. The air control is like a reverb. Sounds great and works well with AU!
Another wonderful creation
This company has put together an amazing collection of software and it's consistently solid, innovative, and awe-inducing. I'm looking forward to their future instrument line-up. This EP is NICE!
Sounds nothing like a Rhodes
But in fairness none of the Rhodes apps have a sound even vaguely like a Rhodes or Wurly. Shame I had to blow $8 to learn. Next time I'll read they reviews.
