Die Funky Maschine ZD6 v. 1.1

This plugin is only available as 32 bit for Windows. The Mac version has been retired due to incompatibility with the most modern OSX.  Please test the free demo version!

Instrument Background

It was back in the fifties when German inventor Ernst Zacharias invented one of the funkiest keyboards of all times. At first the intention was to make a portable version of a cembalo, but it soon turned into one of the most used keyboards in rock and pop music. You will certainly recognize it in the famous pop song "Superstition", and in many other funky tunes of the seventies. Many police and investigation story movies and TV shows of the 70's and the early 80's had music themes based on funky accompaniments made with the D6, a slap bass and drums. This instrument can reproduce the sound of an electric guitar and can be treated with the same effects used by guitarists (wahwah, distortion, phaser, chorus, etc.) for both rhythmic and melodic textures, since it is actually based on a set of 60 strings and two humbucker pickups very similar to those used in electric guitars.
