Samplephonics releases free Leeds Town Hall Organ sample library

Samplephonics has announced the release of the Leeds Town Hall Organ, a free virtual instrument sample library in collaboration with organist Dr Simon Lindley.

Samplephonics Leeds Town Hall Organ

Simon crafted 6 versatile presets for us and we began the painstaking process of sampling this incredible feat of engineering. Over the next few months we spent many evenings in the town hall recording every single note with multiple round robins and over 10 second note recordings to capture the true sonic character of the organ. The repetitive nature of the task actually became quite hypnotic and a strange bond began to form between us, the organ, the building and the very spirit of the city of Leeds.

Everyone involved in the project worked long hours and for free, so we felt that it was only right to give away the fruits of our labour and hope that the spirit of this incredible instrument could spread throughout the world and help people to craft wonderful music that moves people to do good things.

Leeds Town Hall Organ features

  • 3.2GB compressed content.
  • Contains stereo wav organ note recordings and sampler instruments for Kontakt 5, Kontakt 4, Ableton Sampler, EXS24 and Reason NN-XT.

The library is a free download at Samplephonics.

Sonokinetic releases The Carnival for Kontakt

Sonokinetic The Carnaval

Sonokinetic has announced the release of The Carnival, a virtual barrel organ instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Ever since we recorded and produced ‘Carousel’ several years ago, we’ve been hearing so many positive reactions about it, and about the need for ‘couleur locale’ like this. Loving Carousel as much as we do, we decided to do an encore, a sequel if you wish. We infused this new instrument with a lot of the things we’ve learned and perfected over the years. Our scripting mastermind Ken Black added an ingenious script to glue it all together and make it feel and play as it should in proper Sonokinetic fashion.

For the recording we went back to Hilversum in the Netherlands and booked the same studio we used for Celesta. We teamed up with A.W. de Vogel, who comes from a long lineage of prolific organ-men in the lowlands. He brought along two of his most cherished barrel organs, a small hand operated one, and a larger one powered by an electric motor, that we barely got through the studio entrance.

The Carnival features

  • 470 MB sample pool, 850+ samples (44.1 kHz, 24-bit NCW format).
  • Big and Small organs with 4 registers respectively.
  • Organ percussion and sampled Tremolo for the large organ.
  • Octave Doubling.
  • Automatic Tempo-synced trills (major and minor).
  • Tempo-synced runs in 5 scales.
  • ‘The Carnival’ Bespoke Reverb.
  • Sampled Bellows Noise.
  • Custom designed interface.
  • Open Kontakt format for complete user customisation (Kontakt 4.2.4 or 5 full version only, NOT compatible with the free Kontakt Player).

The library is available to purchase for 69.90 EUR.

SampleTekk releases ST Little Bastard + 50% off organ libraries

SampleTekk Little Bastard

SampleTekk has announced the release of ST Little Bastard, a virtual organ instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Recently I was in a studio doing something completley different, when I suddenly spotted something lurking in the corner. When looking more closly, I found that it was a M100 Hammond Organ with a Leslie 147 cabinett.

Liking all things tubed, and knowing that this is the model used on ”Whiter Shade Of Pale” and by John Paul Jones on Led Zeppelins first album, I had to give it a try. It started and swirled into action. Cranking it up it delivered a rawness that just made me wanting to record it. Ok, miked the Leslie and started recording.

I recorded 48 different settings, with the Leslie on slow and fast speed. Nothing fancy, nothing special, just a Little Bastard making a lot of noise. So here it is, for your entertainment!

ST Little Bastard features

  • 48 Preset Hammond M100.
  • Recorded through a Leslie 147.
  • Leslie Fast/Slow Speed.
  • Change speed with modwheel.
  • 24-bit stereo samples.
  • Over 700 MB of samples.

The sample library is available to purchase at the introductory price of $24.50 USD until February 10th, 2014 (regular $49 USD).

SampleTekk has announced that all its other organ libraries are also 50% off during this introduction period.

Precisionsound releases Multimonica II sample library

Precisionsound Multimonica II

Precisionsound has announced the Multimonica II, a sample library featuring a vintage analog synthesizer that combines vacuum tube synthesis with a fan-powered reed organ, and is equally at home in electronic and acoustic music.

The Hohner Multimonica II was designed by the German engineer Harald Bode in the mid-1950s. A predecessor to the Clavioline tube synthesizer, the Multimonica II combined vacuum tube synthesis with a fan-driven reed organ.

We sampled both the synthesizer and organ sections of the Multimonica II, capturing every setting and register for each note on the original instrument. After fine-tuning and seamlessly looping the samples, we rebuilt the Multimonica II within virtual samplers for use in your music.

For the synth section, you get the true sound of the analog instrument with huge improvements in control and stability, way beyond what’s possible with the real thing.

Multimonica II features

  • 205 stereo and 350 mono 24-bit WAV samples.
  • 8 multisampled synthesizer settings.
  • 5 multisampled accordion-style registers.
  • 2 programs for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted performance controls and GUI.
  • 14 programs for NI Kontakt 2.
  • 20 programs for Logic EXS24.
  • 13 programs for SoundFont.
  • The total size of the library compressed is 345 MB.

Multimonica II is available to purchase for $59 USD (CD/DVD backup for additional $9.95 USD or/and digital backup for $3.95 USD). All formats are included when you buy Multimonica II.
