The Organetta is a small portable reed organ made in the late 50s by the German company Hohner. The sound is generated by an electric fan that blows air into a set of brass reeds hence the sound is reminiscent of something in between a melodica and an accordion.
The instrument has been sampled with two mics: a large diaphragm condenser mic and a piezo attached to the chassis. The fan noise has been removed from the samples but it is possible to add it to the mix. There are also 6 round robin of the key down and up noises.
