Sound Dust releases Hammr Growler for Kontakt

Sound Dust has released Hammr Growler, the third part of the Hammr Suite, a comprehensive tonewheel organ set of sampled instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sound Dust Hammr Growler

Hammr Growler is the filthy brother of the not particularly demure Hammr+ and was developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe.

The Growler captures from 4 mic positions the full tilt sound of Mikeys favourite 888000000 setting on his 1959 B3 through a cranked up Leslie cabinet.

Hammr Growler features

  • 5 x 15 second samples per note for a total of 3.2GB of samples compressed to a 2.7GB download.
  • 4 mic positions using classic Neuman mics and Grace preamps.
  • Individual control of volume, pan, ADSR and vibrato per mic.
  • Percussion 2nd and 3rds available at the same time, with control of octave and decay time.
  • Note off volume and decay control.
  • Velocity sensitivity control.
  • CC11 hard-wired to volume for expression pedal swells.
  • Leslie simulator with speed, treble/bass balance and distance controls.
  • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
  • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
  • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
  • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on /off to mimic the effects of ageing key contacts.
  • 24 presets.
  • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
  • Built in user manual.

The library is available for £30 GBP. A purchase includes a 10 EUR discount link for MeldaProduction’s MVintageRotary Leslie simulator plug-in, and a £10 discount code for Hammr+.

Samplehonics releases Sonas Philicorda for Kontakt

Samplehonics has released Philicorda, the first premium virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt from its new imprint Sonas.

Samplephonics Sonas Philicorda

This is the first Philicorda virtual instrument available that has every single vox and octave combination sampled individually.

The original Philicorda contains 2 sets of switches, the first set activating octaves and the second set activating different voices, which generate different harmonic attributes. Initially we thought sampling would be fairly straight forward as we could just record the different voices at each octave and layer them together. But after studying the circuit diagram we realised this wasn’t going to be possible!

Sonas Philicorda features

  • 3.79 GB content.
  • Custom 3D modelled Kontakt interface.
  • Requires full vesrion of Kontakt 5.3.0 or higher.
  • Over 6,000 sampled waveforms.

The library is available for purchase for £49 GBP.

Arturia releases VOX Continental V organ instrument

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 05, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Arturia has announced the release of VOX Continental V, a vintage keyboard recreation, bringing back the classic sound of the famous VOX Continental 300.

Arturia Vox Continental 300

As a high-end software recreation of the Sixties-vintage VOX Continental 300 transistor-based combo organ, VOX Continental-V is the latest addition to Arturia’s acclaimed Analog Classics lineup where it sits alongside an authentic recreation of another archetypal Sixties staple, Wurlitzer-V (based on the classic ‘Wurly’ electric piano). Introduced in 1962, the VOX Continental — or ‘Connie’ as affectionately it became known — was originally designed to address the needs of touring musicians, but became musically much-loved in its own right. As such, it prominently featured on many hit records of the time, including The Animals’ classic ‘House Of The Rising Sun’ in 1964 and, a little later, ‘Light My Fire’ by The Doors. Onstage, The Beatles performed a memorably frenzied version of ‘Help!’ B-side ‘I’m Down’ during their August 1965 performance at New York’s Shea Stadium with John Lennon playing a VOX Continental using his elbows at times!

Despite being phased out of production in the early-Seventies, the VOX Continental has stood the test of time, too, playing a pivotal part in generating many of the distinctive keyboard sounds supporting later musical genres, including almost everything ever recorded by British Ska revivalists Madness, as well as New Wavers like Elvis Costello and The Attractions and American counterparts Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. However, VOX organs have become increasingly difficult to acquire due to the high prices that they can command, compounded by the limited supply of working units. Today, VOX Continental-V gives contemporary, computer-based musicians instant access to those same hit-making sounds of yesteryear, and much more besides — and all without breaking the bank!

VOX Continental V features

  • Physical Modeling of the VOX Continental 300.
  • Added models of the ultra rare Jennings J70.
  • Extended mode allows for more controls and more sound possibilities.
  • Includes classic stompbox-type modeled effects.
  • Modeled Guitar Tube Amp and Rotary Speaker outputs for vintage live sound.
  • Extensive MIDI mapping of pedals, effects and sound engine parameters.
  • Modeled amplifiers: Fender Deluxe Reverb Blackface, Fender Twin Reverb Blackface, Fender Bassman, Marshall Plexi, Leslie Speaker.
  • Modeled microphones: Shure SM57, Sennheiser MD 421, Neumann U 87.
  • Convolution reverb with custom classic spring reverbs.

The Vox Continental V is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX/Standalone) for $99 USD/99 EUR (download) / $129 USD/119 EUR (boxed).

Sound Dust releases Hammr+ organ for Kontakt

Sound Dust Hammr+

Sound Dust has announced the release of Hammr+, a virtual tonewheel organ instrument library for Native Instruments, developed in collaboration with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded by Andy Britton.

You’d be right in thinking that he last thing the world needs is another Hammond clone, and I would be the first to agree, but the Hammr+ is a little different.

Of course she oozes classic character and has all the capabilities you’d expect of a tonewheel organ, but in true Sound Dust style this thing takes a huge leap of the imagination and moves way past the limitations of the original. By taking advantage of sampling technology and bespoke Kontakt architecture and a little bit of imagination Hammr+ can do things that were inconceivable in the original 1959 instrument.

Hammr+ features

  • Every note of every drawbar of an unmentionable tonewheel organ sampled for 7 secs through a 1959 Leslie cabinet for around 1GB of uncompressed samples.
  • Individual control of volume, pan, ADSR, vibrato, saturation (amount, bass and tone) and tremolo (speed, fade and depth ) for every drawbar.
  • Percussion 2nd and 3rds available at the same time, with control of octave and decay time.
  • Note off volume and decay control.
  • Velocity sensitivity control.
  • CC11 hardwired to volume for expression pedal swells.
  • Leslie simulator with speed, treble/bass balance and distance controls.
  • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
  • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
  • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
  • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on /off to mimic the effects of aging key contacts.
  • 70 presets including 30 classic sounds.
  • Chaos and reset controls for painless sound design.
  • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
  • Built in user manual.
  • It sounds great!

Hammr+ is available for purchase for £30 GBP. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or above. A 10 EUR discount link for the MVintageRotary Leslie simulator by Melda Production is included.

Bigcat Instruments released Saint Augustine’s Organ for Kontakt

Bigcat Instruments has announced Saint Augustine’s Organ, a virtual organ instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Saint Augustine's Organ

Nick Appleton sampled the organ of St. Augustine’s Anglican Church, Neutral Bay. I’ve turned it into an instrument for Kontakt 5.

With 850 samples weighing at over one and a half gigs, the organ has plenty of room to roar. With 12 stops, 5 great, 7 swell and 2 pedal, the user has plenty of control. Since the stops operate independently of each other, there are thousands of combinations that can be explored across the split keyboard.

The library is a free download. Requires full version of Kontakt.
