The ETI ROADS was created as part of a bachelor thesis at the Erich-Thienhaus Institute in Detmold, Germany. The Rhodes MKII that is available there for music productions was initially prepared and tuned for the recording of the samples. After a week and around 50 hours of recorded audio, the instrument was now immortalized with greatest possible detail. After processing and denoising, the thousands of samples were embedded in KONTAKT, a GUI was created, and the additional functions were implemented through scripting. You can find a link to a digital version (in german) of the thesis right here.
