Soniccouture Novachord

Soniccouture has released Novachord, a sample library featuring the sounds of the worlds first commercially available synthesizer, designed by the Hammond Organ Company in 1938 and put into full production from 1938 to 1942.

We sampled every one of the 72 notes on this beast – 50 times over. As well as full patches, we also separately sampled each Novachord ‘tone’ – the stops, or filter channels – so that we could model a ‘Virtual Novachord’ in Kontakt.

This comprehensive core sample library is used to maximum effect in creating two separate instrument concepts – The Dual layer NovaSynth and the 1939 / 2039 NovaSynth.

Soniccouture Novachord features

  • 3.5 Gb core library – 3600 samples.
  • 24bit 44.1khz sampling.
  • The most comprehensive Novachord library available.
  • Every key on original unit ( 72 keys ) sampled 50 times with different settings.
  • Over 200 presets and additional sound-design templates.

Novachord is available to purchase as a Kontakt Player compatible sample library (PC/Mac), priced at 89 EUR / $129 USD.
