_thrift store brings a rare find in the form of a 1970s Japanese electric piano for Ableton. 4 sampled sounds, 100 sound presets + 24 MIDI chord progressions to start with.


Watch a demo walkthrough of this pack and see what's inside here:


The Hillwood CP-2 sounds like that quirky era of synths pretending to be pianos from the 70s. There were many synthesizers as "electric pianos" but the CP-2 is truly a little know rarity. It may not be the best, but it's unique, and truly made to just sit in a song without much fuss.


The CP-2 has 4 basic sounds called Piano High, Piano Low, Harpsichord Low, and Harpsichord High. There's also a vibrato mode and sustain length setting for all sounds. We sampled the direct output for all 61 keys for each sound. After putting them into an Ableton Sampler instrument, we designed some tasty real time macro controls and built some dreamy lo-fi effects that add more of that thrift store flavour.


Lost in the thrift store? Not to worry, there's 100 different sound presets, 24 chord progressions as MIDI files or Albleton clips, and easy to use macro sound controls to dial in the right amount of discounted sound.




• 4 sampled sounds with 61 keys totalling 244 samples. (296MB)

• 24 chord progressions in MIDI and Ableton Clip Format.

• 1 Ableton 11.3+ Session.

• 1 Ableton Sampler Device with 100 sound presets.

• 96k/24bit .wav sources.

• 100% Royalty-Free.

• Designed in Vancouver, Canada by Subsocial Studios.



For best results, we recommend updating to the latest version of Ableton Live for patch/preset compatibility.


Ableton error messages such as, "Only audio effects can be placed in this kind of track." or, "Preset can not be loaded. It's probably broken." - usually indicate that our presets were made in a version of Ableton that is newer than yours. If you run into issues, please contact us for help!


Important: Ableton Live files are not backwards compatible. We generally create new releases in the current version of Ableton Live. Currently, all of our Ableton releases are for version 11.0 or greater. Using older versions of Ableton Live will most likely not allow you to use our newest releases. Consider updating your version of Ableton to the latest version to ensure good compatibility.


Some of our Ableton releases are for specific editions of Ableton only (Intro, Standard, Suite). Please ensure you have the correct version before purchasing.
