Wavesfactory releases Little Harmonium for Kontakt

Wavesfactory Little Harmonium

Wavesfactory has launched Little Harmoninium, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We sampled a little harmonium from the late XIX century. The harmonium, or pump organ, is a type of reed organ that generates sound with foot-pumped bellows. This particular organ only has one stop, we created a Facebook album to show you the actual instrument. Click here!

It has 3 optional repetitions (round robin) and 1 velocity layer. The volume of the instrument depends on the amount of air that you put inside using your feet. If you go faster, you can hear the volume changes. That’s been modelled inside Kontakt and you can replicate that sound using the modwheel.

Attack, release volume, sample offset, EQ, flip stereo, spread (from stereo to mono) and octave voicing controllabe directly from the GUI.

The sample library costs 9.95 EUR.

Winterpark releases free Toy Harmonium rack for Live 9

Winterpark Toy Harmonium

Winterpark has released Winterpark’s Toy Harmonium, a free sampled instrument for Live 9.

So I recently found this funny little keyboard at Camberwell Market. It’s a Toy Harmonium probably from the late 50′s or early 60′s.

I was immediately drawn to it not only because of the awesome colours on the keys, but also by the completely crazy whirring noise that it makes even before you press any keys down!

It sort of inspired me to make a sample based instrument from it. So… enter the new Ableton Live 9 which I have been playing around with.

I created this sample-based instrument using the Toy Harmonium and a bunch of the new Max for Live gadgets that are in Live 9, and also a kind of generative music type demo.

The Toy Harmonium library is a free download.
