Few instruments get fans of funk grooves drooling like the Hohner D6 clavinet. Originally intended for classical harpsichord-esque duties, but really sonically closer to an electric guitar than a piano, its twangy, spanking timbres add a melodic tension to a groove like nothing else. To achieve the iconic funk sound it is paired with a wah-wah pedal - one of the earliest examples of this was on Up On Cripple Creek by The Band in 1969.

The D6 contained 60 strings that are amplified by two active pickups, one above the strings close to the bridge (Upper Pickup), and one below the strings (Lower Pickup). The instrument is played from a keyboard, which launches little hammers that strike and hold the strings in place. When the hammer is released, the dampers at the end of the string stop the sound. The D6 also has a Mute slider, which brings a felt damper over the resonant part of the strings to create a different timbre and shorter decay time.

Hohner D6s are getting quite rare, because of their delicate, high-maintenance mechanical nature. Over a 12 month period we extensively restored and then modified our D6, which was a nice example in decent working order before we even started. But to get these instruments functioning absolutely perfectly is a real labour of love. As well as wanting to get it sounding perfect, we also needed to make a few custom modifications. To model the internal setup of the instrument, we added a direct XLR output to record each pickup separately, and an input to the D6 preamp in order to capture the EQ response. The switching added for this output can be seen in the pictures above

Sampling each pickup separately and bypassing the preamp means that the architecture of the Soniccouture Clav is very creatively flexible. As well as routing both pickups into the preamp as on the traditional instrument, it is also possible to have a clean, direct output, and to vary the level and panning of each pickup independently. The traditional Clav rocker switches then control the phase of the pickups.

Featuring 31 velocity layers (14,880 samples - 9GB), Soniccoutures' new intelligent round-robin system, release samples and a fully modelled pickup / preamp section, Soniccouture Clav brings the Hohner D6 Clavinet to your DAW like never before.
