Bad Cat Media has released The Performachord, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Bad Cat The Performachord

“The Performachord” is a reed based instrument thats somewhat of a cross between an accordion, and an organ. It is also commonly known as a “Chord Organ”, among a couple other names. The left hand is played by “push down” buttons offering different voiceing’s including: Roots, Major, Minor, & Seventh. Although this may seem basic to some, with a little creativity, and a decent grasp of theory, one can actually create numerous chord voicings using a combination of these buttons alone.

On the right hand, it has a keyboard to allow for melodies to be played in conjunction with the chords, or simply to be used for solo melody purposes. The character of its sound is unmistakeable, and easily fits well into the common “accordion based sound” that composers turn to day after day for TV/film work. However, it is far from from a one trick pony, and can easily be used in modern EDM/House music for either chord or melody.

The Performachord features

  • A deeply sampled Performachord instrument.
  • Over 700 samples, 1.12 GB download.
  • Requires Native Instruments Kontact 5.3 or higher.

The library is available to purchase for $19.99 USD.
