Hollow Sun Vermona ET3

Hollow Sun has released Vermona ET3, an organ sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Not much is known about the Vermona range of organs other than they were made in East Germany (or the Deutsche Demokratische Republik) in the late 60s/early 70s. They made quite a range of models including two manual organs witrh presets, etc., but being behind the iron curtain back then, they didn’t make much of an impression here in the west. Which was a shame really because Vermona were also making some great amps and a spring reverb at the time.

We’ve teamed up with Charles Tyler who owns a working Vermona ET3 in excellent condition…

Vermona ET3 features

  • 44.1kHz/24-Bit.
  • Each drawbar multi-sampled separately.
  • Full mixing of drawbars on scripted panel.
  • ADSR envelope and filter for synth sounds.
  • Amp and cab sim plus rotary speaker.
  • ‘Damage’ control re-creates faulty instrument.
  • 5 octave range – extended bottom octave.

The Vermona ET3 for Kontakt is available to purchase for £15 GBP.

Hollow Sun Novalite

Hollow Sun has released Novalite, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

A ‘lite’ version of our award winning Novachord library, this features just the raw Novachord waveform but comes with two ‘resonators’, a ‘Mellow’ (lowpass) filter, an AHDSR envelope and a uniquely implemented LFO to recreate the antiquated tones of this 1939 behemoth.

But there’s a twist …

You can have up to four layers and each one can be individually mixed, panned, tuned, detuned, filtered and shaped to create sounds unimaginable on the original instrument as well as surprisingly authentic tones and textures that will set your teeth on edge!

Novalite features

  • Genuine Hammond Novachord samples from a re-conditioned original, 44.1kHz/24-bit.
  • Advanced Retro Synthesis Engine.
  • Balance, velocity and ‘spread’ controls.
  • Distortion, cab sim, EQ, chorus, phaser, rotary cab, echo.
  • Convolved reverb featuring a wide range of impulses.
  • Four layers each with tuning, level and pan, vibrato, two resonators and ‘Mellow’ filter, and AHDSR envelope.

Novalite for Kontakt 4.2.3 full version is available to purchase for £10 GBP.

Hollow Sun Shangri La

Hollow Sound has released Shangri La, a new Music Lab Machine sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

With 61 samples (one for each note of a 5-octave keyboard), each one is individually editable with tuning, panning and EQ and multi-mode, dual slope filters, two envelopes, a multi-wave LFO, distortion, bit crusher and sample rate reducer before being passed to a comprehensive multi-FX chain comprising chorus, phase shifting, flanger, echo and a convolved reverb with a wide range of custom impulses.

Don’t expect solid basses and soaring leadlines – this is one for abstract soundscapes … or a sound in a regular track that will make people ask “What the hell was that?” as its subtle impact is felt. This really is a sublime soundset for anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.

Shangri La features

  • 48kHz/24-bit.
  • Advanced Retro Synthesis Engine.
  • Tibetan bowl samples.
  • Each sample individually editable with.
  • Multi-wave LFO.
  • Multi-mode 2-pole/4-pole filter.
  • Two envelope shapers.
  • Distortion, bit crusher and sample rate reducer.
  • EQ, chorus, phaser, flanger and echo multi-FX.
  • Convolved reverb featuring a wide range of impulses.

Hollow Sun releases Techtron sample library for Kontakt

Hollow Sun Techtron

Hollow Sun has released Techtron, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Using battered casework and components we salvaged from old Soviet Union submarine radio equipment that was languishing and due for cruel and ruthless de-commisioning, Techtron brings thoroughly modern sounds in re-purposed retro style.

With two ‘super’ oscillators featuring thick, detuned sawtooths (which we call ‘iSaw’ here at HS Towers and come courtesy of HS chum, BeMuso) through a multimode, dual slope filter, two envelopes, two LFOs, a pitch EG, mono and poly playback modes with glide, etc., Techtron offers instant ‘techno’ sounds that are powerful, wide, bright, brash, fizzy and anthemic and yet also capable of chunky basses, spiky arpeggios, thick leadlines and lush, luxuriously smooth pads plus dark, broody and moody textures.

Techtron features

  • 48kHz/24-bit.
  • Advanced Retro Synthesis Engine.
  • Two ‘iSaw’ Oscillators.
  • Two LFOs.
  • Multi-mode 2-pole/4-pole filter.
  • Two envelope shapers.
  • Pitch envelope.
  • Poly and mono play modes.
  • EQ, distortion, chorus, phaser, rotary and echo multi-FX.
  • Convolved reverb featuring vintage spring reverbs.

Techtron is available to purchase for $10 USD.

Jiggery-Pokery releases Additions: retro additive synthesizers for Reason

Jiggery-Pokery has released Additions: retro additive synthesizers, an additive and FM synthesizer ReFill for Reason.

Jiggery-Pokery Additions ReFill

Additive synthesis: the unsung, unloved princess of synthesizer sound-making has been locked at the top of an overgrown tower for over a decade. Like a jester dressed as a Knight in slightly tarnished armour, JP rides to her rescue, kisses her back to life and lovingly crafts a massive set of sounds from two classic synthesizers, the FM/additive hybrid, the DK Synergy (1982), a long-time favourite of electronic artist Wendy Carlos, (patches from whom we are pleased to present here) and the true-additive beast that was the Kawai K5m (1987).

Additions features

  • DK Synergy: all three of the rare Wendy Carlos cartridges, plus the factory and FX sets, and cartridges #4 and #5, for a total of 165 tones, plus 35 multi-layered Combinators, all handcrafted into shape by JP, for Hollow Sun.
  • Kawai K5m: 253 patches from the Kawai K5m—one of only a handful of true additive synthesizers ever produced—and several of its memory cards, lovingly sampled and edited by JP. Several patches feature velocity or release layers, plus 100 multi-layered, additive industrial soundscapes, including many recreations of Kawai presets.
  • Most DKS and K5m patches feature up to four notes per octave to reduce note stretch artefacts, and samples up to 30 seconds long in some cases. Additions contains nearly 2.8GB of uncompressed samples..
  • 68 “Virtual Synergy” Combinators, using Thors’ FM Pair oscillators and inspired by the DK Synergy.
  • selig VocoSynth, combined with JPs virtual RMI Harmonic Synthesizer template.
  • PDF user guide.

The Additions ReFill is available to purchase for £29.95 GBP.

Hollow Sun releases RMI Electrapiano for Kontakt

Hollow Sun has released RMI Electrapiano, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hollow Sun RMI Electrapiano

The samples employed in Hollow Sun’s RMI Electrapiano come courtesy of one Justin Casey in the US who took them from his own RMI Electrapiano 368. He very sensibly sampled each ‘tab’ separately thereby providing access to the PIANO, PIANO PP, HARPSI, HARPSI PP, LUTE and ACCENTER thus providing an opportunity, using Kontakt’s scripting, to totally recreate the instrument as authentically as possible with each tab switchable individually to mix and match and combine the different sounds.

But of course, the sound of the actual Electrapiano itself was only half the picture – its famous users of yesteryear shoved their RMIs through all manner of effects pedals such as distortion, phase shifters, echo, etc., so, again, an opportunity to recreate that using Kontakt’s on-board multi-effects.

Hollow Sun’s Electrapiano also brings modern twists to the instrument such as presets and the ability for users to store their own presets.

RMI Electrapiano features

  • Authentic front panel; combine piano, harpsichord & lute.
  • ‘Accenter’ separately switchable.
  • 44kHz/24-bit samples for each note.
  • Presets plus user preset function.
  • Distortion, cab sim, chorus, phase shifter and echo multiFX.
  • Convolved reverb including springs, rooms, halls, etc.

The RMI Electrapiano for Kontakt is available to purchase for $25 USD.
