Precisionsound releases Gospel Drawbars for Kontakt & EXS24

Precisionsound Gospel Drawbars

Precisionsound has announced the release of Gospel Drawbars, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.

Our goal with Gospel Drawbars has not been to make a generic virtual recreation of an organ but to capture the character of a unique instrument, in this case one of the first ever Hammond organ models made, a Hammond AB from the late 1930s.

We have created a user-friendly control panel for blending a number of pre-made settings. The drawbar settings have been carefully chosen to include both mellow standards and trebles with attitude.

We recorded all the settings through the organ’s own Leslie speaker, in stereo, which gives a warm and pleasing colour to the sound. Gospel Drawbars has 22 recorded settings and 955 stereo wav samples in total, recorded at 24bits and 44.1 Sample rate.

You get 22 programs for NI Kontakt 2 and Logic EXS24. The NI Kontakt 3-5 scripted version has 22 bonus presets to start with for your own tweakings. The total size of the library uncompressed is 1.10 GB.

Gospel Drawbars costs $69 USD (download). All formats are included when you buy Gospel Drawbars. Full version of Kontakt is required.

Propellerhead releases Rotor Rack Extension for Reason

Propellerhead has announced the release of Rotor, a rotary speaker Rack Extension for Reason.

Propellerhead Rotor
Rotor comes complete with an included organ instrument for Reason’s Combinator, as well as a set of expertly crafted Rotor patches designed for guitar, drums, vocals and keys.

Meticulously modeled on the Leslie 122 speaker, Rotor brings its trademark vintage soul to the Reason rack, making authentic organ sounds and old-school guitar tones instantly accessible to Reason users.

Rotor carefully emulates all aspects of a rotary speaker, down to the independent rotation and acceleration of the horn and drum, and has settings for mic distance and rotation speed. Yet Rotor also takes the classic rotary speaker design into the future, with two flavors of built-in preamp distortion, control over the rotation doppler effect, the horn’s length and acceleration speed as well as CV output of the rotation, for syncing other Reason devices to Rotor’s speed and acceleration.

Rotor features

  • Extremely authentic emulation of a Leslie speaker.
  • Behaves just like the original. The horn part of the sound ramps up and down faster than the Drum part of the sound due to the inertia.
  • Looking for great tone? Just turn it on. Rotor turns simple synthesized organs into amazingly accurate organ sounds, makes guitars sound interesting, and makes vocals wide and 60’s flavored.
  • Fully integrated with the Reason rack. Sync other Reason devices to Rotor’s rotation speed through CV on the back.
  • Challenges the physical restrictions of a rotary speaker. The parameters go beyond the real world with horns twice the size and helicopter-like rotation speeds of up to 13.6hz. Just reach for the trim knobs!
  • Includes an organ instrument for Reason’s Combinator, and a great set of Rotor and Combinator patches for guitar, vocals, keys and drums.

Rotor is available to purchase for $49 USD / €39 EUR. Reason and Reason Essentials users can download a free, fully functional trial version for 30 days to try Rotor in their music.

Tronsonic releases Organatron V2 for Kontakt

Tronsonic has released Organatron V2, a vintage rock organ sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Tronsonic Organatron V2
Organatron V2 features all 9 drawbars, bass pedals and percussion harmonics from the legendary Hammond m100 prog organ.

Sampled to tape from the Hammond m100 (as used by Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Procul Harum and many more), the Organatron V2 is an updated version of the original Organatron m100.

Its interface is borrowed from the microtape series, but with a couple of extras – fully adjustable vibrato (via tone, amp and pitch) and a Rotating Leslie speaker effect (slow or fast adjusted via the mod wheel/MIDI CC1).

Both of these can be individually set for each drawbar, giving a new level of customization to the organ (as well as effects – coming soon in the New Year as another free upgrade).

As with the microtapes, this interface features the tape ‘degrader’ controls (shared with the vibrato here). These control how ‘damaged’ you’d like the tape effect to sound for each drawbar (via tone, amp, pitch and speed). With these controls, the user can make their instrument sound like a vintage film soundtrack, or a rare lost prog gem – adjusting the ‘age’ of the sound to taste. Each drawbar (there are 9 plus bass pedals and percussion harmonics) also has a tone control (the left tape wheel), which is a way to add the vintage atmosphere by cutting the treble.

All drawbars can be loaded into a multi-patch, giving the user the whole organ to play. All controls (including volume) can be learned via MIDI CC (right click the mouse and turn the control to learn). A custom template for the bcr2000 will be available soon.

The sample library costs £14.99 GBP. It is currently available as part of the 50% off Christmas Sale for £7.49 GBP. Existing Organatron m100 owners can get it free of charge (the upgrade version references the original samples).

XILS-lab intros LX122 rotating speaker cabinet plugin

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 05, 2012 - comment 0 comments

XILS-lab has introduced LX122, an emulation of the the Leslie rotating speaker.

XILS-lab LX122
XILS-lab’s LX122 offers a rotating speaker emulation with treble output in a rotating horn, and bass output in a rotating drum.

Although there is a lot a various models, the classic Leslie speaker consists of two driver units – a stationary treble unit with spinning horns (called Horn here), and a stationary woofer and spinning rotor (called Drum here), with two filters, which divide the frequency spectrum between the horn and the woofer.

Both the horns and a sound baffle for the bass are rotated to create Doppler effect based vibrato, tremolo and chorus effects. The rotating elements can be stopped, switched between slow (chorale) and fast (tremolo), or transitioned between the two settings. Not only the unit gives this particular effect, but also the ensemble it creates with the room where it is located.

The LX122 emulates the Horn and the Drum, as well as the room where various coherent reflections are occurring when they are rotating. It also emulates the tube base amplifier as well as the intrinsic characteristics of the Drum (woofer response and drum size) or the Horn (Tweeter response, horn size and diffusers).

The internal cabinet refexions, which give this known mellow specific sound, are also taken into account but with the never done possibility to increase or decrease their effects, going from a standard closed cabinet to a opened air rotating speakers.

The LX122 is the indipensable companion for your keyboards and organ , but if you like to tweak parameters, if you want to build your own cabinet, change its characteristics, if you want to experiment further in recording this device, using two independant microphones in various rooms, then go to the LX122 Premium, you won’t be despointed. A wide range of stereo effects, space feeling, pitch modifications are straight to your hands.

LX122 and LX122 Premium are available to purchase for the introductory price of 29 EUR / $37 USD (LX122) and 45 EUR / $58 USD (LX122 Premium) until December 5th, 2012. The plug-ins are serial number-protected products — no iLok required.
