Bob Leggitt releases Classic-H and Skanksta organ plugins

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 13, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Bob Leggitt has released Classic-H and Skanksta, two free virtual organ instruments for Windows.

Bob Leggitt Classic-H

The Classic-H provides the essence of an old tonewheel organ within the VST environment. This VSTi captures the distinctive personality of a classic Hammond/Leslie combination, as well as simulating twin manual operation across a single MIDI keyboard, using a variable key-split function.

Thirty extremely cool presets provide a jumping-off point for almost every type of music, from the ‘Full Throb’ of old time soul to the screaming distortion of Deep Purple-type rock. It does gobble CPU, but it has the sounds, and it doesn’t cost a penny.

Bob Leggitt The Skanksta

The Skanksta is a ska-orientated VST organ, designed to produce a light and bright sound which will fit in well with quite a number of quirky and/or rhythmic music styles.

It’s essentially a Vox Continental II with animation provided by a rotary speaker rather than a vibrato unit, and selectable key-splitting to simulate two manuals across a single MIDI keyboard. The key-splitting is particularly important for reggae-derived styles, where the left hand part will typically contrast sharply in tone with the right hand.

Classic-H and Skanksta are available to download as freeware VST instrument plugins for Windows.

Ueberschall releases Funky Tonewheels sound library

Ueberschall Funky Tonewheels

Ueberschall Funky Tonewheels is a new sample library featuring organ sounds by Uwe Kinast and Hakan Türközü.

A dirty-played old tube Hammond Organ slightly overdriven, is the perfect spice for any production where an authentic organ is needed. This loop library contains soloistic played organ licks, many funky rhythm grooves and various chord- and bass grooves. Even unusual and mad played styles found their place in this soundbank.

The whole spectrum of Hammond playing techniques is available: From single lines to shearing styles, from drawbar changing loops to varied Leslie speaker‘s speed and much more.

19 Tonewheel-kits offer you a great opportunity to get inspired by lots of phrases, licks and harmonies.

For this recording, a Hammond Organ C3 and its Leslie 147 was microphoned with 3 Neumann Mics (Treble Rotator 2 Mics , Woofer Rotator 1 Mic) using RME Micstasy Hi End A/D converter.

The sound library comes along with the brand new Elastik 2 loop player for realtime timestretching and pitchshifting, among other great features.

Funky Tonewheels for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/Standalone) is available for 49 EUR.

Virtual organs for musicians who create and record using a VST host and are looking for some retro keyboard sounds. As I write this they’re brand new and not available elsewhere. I plan to add more in the near future, so if you’re interested, please keep an eye on this page.

  • The Nash – late ’70s / early ’80s-style home organ with drawbars and effects.

Yonac Organ+

Yonac has released version 1.1 of Organ+, a virtual organ app for iOS.

Organ+ comes with 7 different organ engines that faithfully recreate the sounds of celebrated transistor and tonewheel organs. The sweet FX stack –with dual chorus/vibrato, vintage-y reverb, overdrive and more– lets you create ample variation, and hone in on *that* sound. Organ+’s two manuals are individually adjustable with 9 drawbars each, giving you distinct tones that improve phrasing and effect. You can even set organ key clicks and “percussion”!

Changes in Organ+ v1.1

  • Added USB Midi support for M-Audio KeyStudio 25, and related Midi controllers.
  • Fixed the “dead key” bug.
  • Vastly improved response, and reduced latency to near 0.
  • Graceful handling of app session interruptions.
  • A more robust audio output engine.

Organ+ is available to purchase from the iTunes App Store for $2.99 USD.

The release of KOMPLETE 7 introduces a number of new products which are also available seperately.

Native Instruments Vintage Organs, Rammfire, Traktor's 12, Reflektor, Reaktor Prism

Part of the KOMPLETE instruments and effects family, VINTAGE ORGANS includes the sounds of the Hammond® B-3, C-3 and M-3 models, the Vox Continental™ II and the Farfisa® Compact, recorded in highest quality from the original instruments exclusively by Native Instruments. The Organ and Amp pages provide full control over sound through drawbars, percussion, chorus/vibrato, overdrive, rotary effect, envelopes, EQ and reverb.

Ideal for heavy room-filling riffs, super-fast attack and bone-crunching overdrive, RAMMFIRE is perfectly and directly modeled on the legendary Pre-500 Dual Rectifier Amp and recording setup of Richard Z. Kruspe (Rammstein). Designed and developed in close collaboration with the man himself, we’ve unlocked the secrets behind this iconic band’s trademark sound.

TRAKTOR’s 12 includes some of the most inspiring and contemporary sounds from TRAKTOR’s arsenal – effects that have been road tested by top DJs in the world’s biggest clubs. Incredible delays, reverbs, and filters join TRAKTOR’s unique and hugely popular Beatmasher, Transpose Stretch and Mulholland Drive, among others, to form a powerful studio tool with true club pedigree.

REFLEKTOR represents the pinnacle of digital signal processing – a definitive convolution reverb based on the groundbreaking Zero Latency Convolution technology developed by Native Instruments. This high-performance effect provides reverb ranging from super-realistic physical rooms to fully virtual acoustics, offering in-depth modeling parameters for creating unique spaces. It can perfectly emulate the sound of high-end, expensive digital reverb units and includes specially designed content for creative sound design. Combined with some highly usable and musical innovations such as the Sync and Reverse feature, this is the ultimate reverb for every production need, from classic to creative.

Based on REAKTOR 5.5′s new “Modal Bank” module, which utilizes the possibilities of physical modeling synthesis, REAKTOR PRISM produces a dynamic and pristine sound that can be dramatically modified via internal or external sources. The result is a wide-ranging synth, equally powerful for hard basses and digital leads as organic soundscapes, percussive keys, flutes and bells.

KOMPLETE 7 is now available to purchase for PC and Mac for 499 EUR / $559 USD. KOMLETE 7 ELEMENTS is 99 EUR / $119 USD, and the KOMPLETE 7 PLAYERS bundle is now available as a free download.
