Wavesfactory has launched Little Harmoninium, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
We sampled a little harmonium from the late XIX century. The harmonium, or pump organ, is a type of reed organ that generates sound with foot-pumped bellows. This particular organ only has one stop, we created a Facebook album to show you the actual instrument. Click here!
It has 3 optional repetitions (round robin) and 1 velocity layer. The volume of the instrument depends on the amount of air that you put inside using your feet. If you go faster, you can hear the volume changes. That’s been modelled inside Kontakt and you can replicate that sound using the modwheel.
Attack, release volume, sample offset, EQ, flip stereo, spread (from stereo to mono) and octave voicing controllabe directly from the GUI.
The sample library costs 9.95 EUR.

VST Buzz has launched a limited time sale on the Wavesfactory Piano Bundle, comprising two virtual piano instruments.
Old Tape Piano is a grand piano that has been sampled in mono using a low quality cassette recorder. It has a lofi vibe to it, without sacrificing dynamics and 8 velocity layers.
W-Honky is a vintage keys library that is similar to the “Mrs Mills” piano sound from Abbey Road Studios used by the Beatles, Elliot Smith etc. The sound was achieved by combining a vertical piano (Kawai from 1984) with a digitally processed metal sound for the attack. The signal is slightly detuned to achieve the honky tonk sound.
Both libraries require the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher (Old Tape piano is available in EX24 format also).
The bundle is available to purchase for $12.50 USD until July 16th, 2013 (50% off regular).
