So what is MKSensation?
This is a dedicated Kontakt library based on the digital piano/ep module from Roland, the MKS-20
This was and is a popular module in the RnB and Gospel music realm and many people still use that
The library allows you to mix and match layers of sounds to create new unique instruments and
everything is done right from the front panel.
There are no hidden menus or screens to go into, which makes it super fast to work with.

So how does it sound?
It sounds like a digital piano man!
Seriously, I'm familiar with this module from it's use by many gospel and church musicians so I instantly
recognized a lot of the sounds.
I also hear the sounds of many classic RnB tracks, so it definitely captures the digital piano and ep sound
I love that you can layer different instruments and mix their levels to create new tones.
In addition to the MKS sounds, they also threw in some other classic EP tones from a few other well
known instruments like the KORG 01w and the Yamaha tx816
This really adds to the flexibility of the instrument, being able to play an ep, with some bells, and throw a
little brass or synth on top is really cool.
So what's the bottom line?
If you're a gospel musician looking for a way to keep the sound of the mks 20 in the digital domain you
definitely want to check this out.
If you're a producer that loves the classic RnB sound of digital pianos then you also may want to check this
Finally if you're just someone that enjoys a good instrument with instant tweak-ability and layering
options, then check this out.
I give MKSensation 4.5 out of 5 subs, the interface is smart, simple, and easy to come up
with new layered sounds
I really like the simplicity and usefulness of the interface and it's fun to layer the sounds to come up with
things you may not normally be able to do on the original module.
