An harmonium for Bollywood productions
Bollywood Sounds has released a sample library featuring the sound of an harmonium for use in the UVI Workstation.
Bollywood Harmonium was recorded at the Beatfactory Studios in New Dehli through high-end gear, including a Wunder PEQ1R preamp/EQ, an Empirical Labs Distressor and Apogee Symphony converters. The 39-key (3 octaves) instrument was captured with different AKG C414 microphone positions in stereo configuration.
You can generate and adjust 4 drones and the dual reed are reproduced for the mids and lows. Bollywood Sounds adds that you can get three variations by using the reeds together or separately.
Bollywood Harmonium is designed for the UVI Workstation : you can use the different switches to manage octaves, key noise, legato, attack, “pump” effect, etc. The GUI also includes chorus, distortion (2nd harmonics), Room reverb effects as well as a stereo width control.
Bollywood Harmonium is available for $79 at www.bollywoodsounds.net.
