Forgotten Keys has launched Hammond AV-64, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The FK14 Kontakt Instrument is based on the Hammond auto-vari 64, model 101300. This is the later version released in the early 1980s, and featured 64 rhythms, 6 breaks and 10 analogue sounds.
Originally designed to sit on top of a home organ, indeed some top-of-the-range Hammond organs had the unit built in.
The FK14 is a faithful re-creation of most of the units features, with all sounds individually multi-sampled in high quality.
