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.

Precisionsound releases EP-30 sample library

Precisionsound EP-30

Precisionsound has announced the release of EP-30, a “Vintage keyboard collection” series sample library featuring the sounds of the Roland EP-30 electric piano.

Roland released the first velocity sensitive electric piano in 1974, the EP-30. It was built in a sturdy road case with 4 preset sounds and a bass sound that could be blended with the others in the lowest octave. It had a vibrato with speed control that affected the volume, and a tone control. You could create some variation to the sound by pressing more than one preset button at a time. Today it’s quite rare to find.

If we where to describe the sound, “Pac Man piano” could be appropriate. EP-30 does not sound like a real piano, it sounds very Lo-Fi and cheesy, in a cool, retro way.

EP-30 features

  • The EP-30 sampled in full, every key and preset. The natural range of the Roland EP-30 is F0 to F5, and F0 to B1 for the Bass. The sample library has an extended range from C0 to C6 except the Bass which has been extended down only, to C0.
  • 263 WAV files (24bit quality).
  • 5 programs for Steinberg HALion, Logic EXS24, NI Kontakt v1-2.
  • 12 programs for NI Kontakt v3-5 (full version required).
  • 5 programs in the SoundFont format (16bit), 100% compatible with all virtual samplers supporting the SoundFont format like Dimension Pro (Cakewalk), Free SFZ player, NN-XT (Reason) and more.

The sample library is available to purchase for $25 USD (download) / $36 USD (DVD). All formats are included.

Precisionsound releases Hedberg Travel Organ sample library

Precisionsound Hedberg Travel Organ

Precisionsound has announced the Hedberg Travel Organ, a sample library for Kontakt, EXS24, HALion & SoundFont.

The “Hedberg Travel organ” is a 4 octave Swedish folding harmonium made in Enskede, Stockholm, Sweden, around 1950 by “Hugo Hedberg”.

This instrument combines brilliance and simplicity in something that looks like an ordinary suitcase. But don´t let the appearance deceive you—it’s a great example of a completely acoustic, portable keyboard instrument.

With a warm and stable tone quality, different from both the accordion and bigger harmoniums, it will be a useful element in genres as Folk, Country and Jazz – but also in a simple acoustic guitar-vocal setup. The instrument has been used as a Missionary Organ, for playing psalms in outdoor services.
