Here is a free set of Rhodes EPs that I think finally sounds like you are playing the real thing. None of the settings on the Pa3x (I'm not sure about the Pa4x/1000/700) come close to sounding like the original Rhodes even though the samples are available in factory ROM. They just seem to have been accessed rather poorly in the final offerings.
The set has 16 different sounds including clean, fast and slow tremolo, tempo synced tremolo, bright etc.
This set does not use any RAM memory at all (Zero!) but accesses factory samples only. The sounds are very detailed with key on/off noises and that nice "bark" you get when playing hard.
Most of the sounds are the original Rhodes sounds but I've included some brighter bell sounds (it was fashionable in the 70s/80s to take the felt off the hammers to achieve this sound).
Tremolo Depth and Distortion are fully controllable while playing or storing in STS (Mixer/Tuning, FX Send, Master 2 & 3) and Tempo will adjust Tremolo Speed for presets with the word Tempo in the sound name if playing or automatically adjust to Style/Midi Tempo.
Demo here with some fiddling with some presets and ends with a midi file accessing this Rhodes set.
DEMO: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kJKDMkAguUjRnZlGu1dZL-3GMVm-UxM0/view?usp=sharing

[Edit: Version 1.1 (September 4, 2019) out now - velocity layers increased from 7 to 8 for main Rhodes sounds by splitting Osc 4, which improves low velocity dynamics]
Download Here: (two versions - the first one loads to User 1 Sounds)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JUZU-i1eaWq7hvzaeuBfW9NnuGtVesPX/view?usp=sharing
To load to User 3 Sounds use this one:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YK-2Lkcz79FRiZTP_4yQ_PT3_hVN3tcq/view?usp=sharing

The set should be compatible for the Pa4x/1000/700 but has not been tested yet.
I have fiddled with the Rhodes sounds in the past but this set is far better.
I hope you enjoy.

It might work in the Pa300 because it only uses factory sounds - no samples.
