Bolder Sounds Harmonium

Bolder Sounds has announced the release of Harmonium, a sample library for Kontakt and EXS24.

This beautiful sounding Harmonium was sampled in 4 articulations (listed below) as well as key press and release noises for each key.

Programming utilizes the modulation wheel (cc#1) to emulate the pumping of the bellows via amplitude and filter modulation.

Harmonium features

  • 480 mb chromatically sampled 3 1/2 octave Harmonium 24 bit stereo .wav files.
  • Natively programmed for Kontakt 2 & 3 as well as the Apple EXS24.
  • Articulations:
    • Chromatic single notes with cover open and closed.
    • Chromatic octave couplet engaged with cover open and closed.
    • Key press and release noise for each key.

Harmonium is available for purchase for $24.95 USD.

Note: With any Bolder Sounds purchase from 7/11/09 to 7/31/09, buy one Bolder library and get a second library of equal or lesser value for free.

Bolder Sounds Harmonica
Bolder Sounds has also released Harmonica, a sample library featuring the sounds of a Marine Band harmonica (in the key of A) by the Hohner Company.

The samples are 24 bit mono with NO LOOPS for a natural sound and total 31 megabytes. I originally recorded these samples in stereo but have decided to sum them to mono for the final version. Perhaps in a future Bolder FREE sound set I will sample bends and other gestures which give this instrument it’s signature sound.
