Hollow Sun Oscillosine

Hollow Sun has released Oscillosine and Organa, two Sonic Laboratory Instruments for Kontakt.

Almost as though it was found in the back of a damp garage after decades of neglect, Hollow Sun has created Oscillosine. Reminiscent of an oddball inventor’s strange homebrew creation, Oscillosine is designed to conjour the sights, sounds and smells of a 1940s experimenter’s laboratory… glowing valves, otherworldly audio and maybe a hint of pipe tobacco.

The samples for Oscillosine are taken from a vintage tube Hewlett Packard sine wave test oscillator estimated to date back to the 50s or 60s, maybe earlier.

Oscillosine features

  • 44.1kHz/24-bit.
  • Valve generated waveforms.
  • Unique user interface featuring…
    • Envelope sweep of pitch
    • Multi-wave LFO with mixable control waveforms
    • Ring Mod and FM for dissonant textures
    • Polyphonic and monophonic play modes
    • 3-Band EQ
    • Phase shifter, chorus, rotary cabinet and echo
    • Convolved reverb featuring vintage spring reverbs

Organa is based on samples from an electric reed organ from the late 50’s.

Hollow Sun Organa
The samples for Organa are taken from a very early Hohner ‘Organa 30’ from the 50s or early 60s belonging to Hollow Sun Deutsche freund, Matthias Shuster.

Little is known about this other than it was an electric reed organ with a fan that blew air through reeds that were opened and closed with the keys. In many ways, it’s an electric harmonium where a motor rather than manually pumped pedals pushes the air around.

Organa features

  • 48kHz/24-bit.
  • From a very rare, early Hohner Organa 30.
  • Unique user interface featuring…
    • Drawbar mixing of reeds
    • Fan noise control
    • Tone control
    • Envelope shaper
    • Chorus, rotary cabinet and echo
    • Convolved reverb featuring vintage spring reverbs

Oscillosine and Organa for Kontakt are available to purchase for $8 USD and $4 USD respectively.
