The funkiest keyboard ever—at your fingertips
Image for Clavinet

The Original Funk Keyboard, Meticulously Multi-Sampled


The D6 clavinet has cast its gritty, twangy spell on musicians as diverse as Steve Wonder, the Rolling Stones, Herbie Hancock, the Band, Funkadelic, Steely Dan, the Wailers, and Fleetwood Mac. And now, Waves has painstakingly captured this instantly recognizable sound, in all its funky glory.

By multi-sampling every texture, articulation, and hammer strike in both muted and unmuted modes, Clavinet nails the classic tone of this keyboard king—but most importantly, it nails the feel.

What Top Pros Are Saying
  • Dave Darlington
    “Waves Clavinet is unbelievably true to the original. I’m having a ball sculpting everything from classic Stevie sounds to way-out-in-space effects. And the control over the mechanical sounds and the formants takes it even beyond the original. “

  • Jason Miles
    “The Waves Clavinet is one funky keyboard, great-sounding, with lots of control over the various nuances of the sound. From the wah to the depth of the phase and the chorus, you can really shape the sound to be hard-edged, funky, warm or edgy. “
