AudioThing releases Pong Glockenspiel instrument plugin

AudioThing has announced Pong Glockenspiel, a sample-based instrument plug-in for Windows and Mac.

AudioThing Pong Glockenspiel
Why use sticks when you can use ping pong balls?

Pong Glockenspiel is a VST/AU sample-based plugin made by recording a toy glockenspiel played with ping pong balls.

Two velocity layers (hard and soft) are cross faded to have a smooth transition while the 3 round robin (repetitions samples) avoid the “machine gun” effect of sampled instruments.

There are also included two ambient instruments, two synth pad instruments and two slowed down instruments crafted using the original samples.

Pong Glockenspiel for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 8 EUR.

AudioThing releases Organetta for Kontakt

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 12, 2013 - comment 0 comments

AudioThing has announced the release of Organetta, a virtual reed organ instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

AudioThing Organetta

The Organetta is a small portable reed organ made in the late 50s by the German company Hohner*. The sound is generated by an electric fan that blows air into a set of brass reeds hence the sound is reminiscent of something in between a melodica and an accordeon.

We sampled this little green friend with two mics: a large diaphragm condenser mic and a piezo attached to the chassis. The fan noise has been removed from the samples but you can choose to add it to the mix or play it alone by pressing the green keys. To add more realism we captured 6 round robin of the key down and up noises.

Organetta features

  • 6 Kontakt Instruments (.nki).
  • 144 Samples (44.1kHz / 24Bit).
  • Two Mics (condenser and piezo).
  • 17 sec long notes samples.
  • 30+ sec long fan samples.
  • Two intensity layers.
  • Formats: Kontakt and WAV.

The Organetta library is available to purchase for the introductory price of 12.90 EUR until July 22nd, 2013 (regular 16 EUR).
