Sonokinetic takes you to the Carnival
Sonokinetic went to Netherlands to sample two barrel organs owned by A.W de Vogel for Kontakt 4 and 5.
The Carnival is the result of the recording and sampling of these two barrel organs, which of them is equipped with a motor and is so big that it barely entered the studio, according to Sonokinetic. The studio is well known by the producer who already used it for its Celesta library.
Sonokinetic also tried to reproduce some characteristics of these barrel organs in Kontakt, including the mechanical runs that will be managed with the pitch bend wheel, trills via the modulation wheel, and a “Melody Double” function allows for playing melodies in octaves. The original tremolo effect of the large organ was also sampled.
In total, the 470MB library features more than 850 samples for the 4 registers of each organ, with percussion and reverb samples, all with a 24-bit / 44.1kHz resolution and programmed for Kontakt 4.2.4 and 5.
The Carnival is available for 69.90€ excl. taxes. You can listen to demos at www.sonokinetic.net.
