The automatic performance organ sound source library, Sonokinetic “Carousel” (normally €69.99) is now available for free.
10 years ago we took a trip to the funfair and recorded a passion project, the original fairground Carousel.
This heritage instrument reminds us of childhood fun, candy floss and steam engines so we wanted to retain all of that joy and excitement within the virtual realm.
For 2020 we’ve dusted off those old recordings and brought them right up to date, remastering every single sample with cutting edge acoustic editing, tuning and de-noising.
The interface has been given a complete overhaul too, so now you can easily tweak the volumes of each of the ten registers and move them up and down your keyboard.
Of course we had to retain the round robin percussion and bellow noises too, for an experience as close to the real thing as possible.
Choose your favourite combinations of register and keyboard placement, to tailor the instrument to your own needs. We’ve also provided the option to throw the organ back a couple of hundred years and retain the original authentic tuning, in all it’s rough-and-ready glory.
For a truly colossal sound, engage the ‘triple trouble’ button which layers 3 notes to create a powerful wall of wind.
Programmed for the latest version of Kontakt and Komplete Kontrol at the time of release, also compatible with the Free Kontakt Player
