Rhythmic Robot releases Lorenzo & Busker for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has announced Lorenzo, a vintage reed organ instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Rhythmic Robot Lorenzo

We have a bit of a soft spot for reed organs. They can add an instant blanket of breathing, organic warmth to a track. Their tuning’s never perfectly stable. The reeds are never quite in sync. The fan noise adds a dash of high-frequency texture to each note. Overall, we can’t get enough of them.

The Lorenzo is a compact four-octave reed organ. No chord accompaniment buttons; no tone controls; just keys and reeds and a fan breathing air over them. So it only does one thing, but the sound it makes it just fantastic.

Lorenzo features

  • Rich, vintage reed organ tone.
  • Individual control over key on and key off samples, randomised for authenticity.
  • Vintage attack captures the original characteristic sound of the reeds; Clean attack gives a snappier, modern sound.
  • Tremolo, rotary and two types of distortion.
  • Tilt EQ to tailor the tone.
  • Separately adjustable fan noise.

Lorenzo for Kontakt is available for the introductory price of £4.95 GBP (regular £5.95 GBP).

Rhythmic Robot has also recently released its Busker percussion library.

Rhythmic Robot Busker

Busker takes its inspiration from those blond-dreadlocked chaps on street corners, and aims to put the smell of old sweat and weed into your DAW courtesy of some street-vibe percussion: cajon, knee-snare, foot stomp, and two kinds of tambourines.

Tambourines in particular always sound kind of anodyne in the big sample libraries; these are warts-and-all wonders of realism, with shakes, rolls, hits and many many randomised round-robins to add natural variation.

Busker features

  • Everything you need to add some hippie street vibe to your tracks.
  • Foot stomp, Cajon, portable wire Knee Snare, and two kinds of Tambourine.
  • Multiple round-robins and velocity layers for organic variation.
  • Hit things with hands or sticks and beaters.
  • “Street” knob adds instant trashy grunge for a more sweat-stained feel.

Busker for Kontakt is available for the introductory price of £5.95 GBP (regular £9.95 GBP).
