The Maestrovox Consort is a tube-based synth/organ in the style of Clavioline and Solovox. The Maestrovoxes were built in the UK by Victor Harold Ward in the 1950s. There are only 21 known surviving keyboards in the world at the time of writing, and 2 of them are in the hands of Precisionsound.
Precisionsound has sampled the whole tonal range in half note steps for all the 7 register settings with generous loops so the sound has time to evolve. They then fine-tuned every sample. The whole library has over 400 24-bit mono samples in a monolith file, losslessly compressed down to a file size of 190MB. The library also contains 36 presets as starting points.
With the Precisionsound Modification (Ps-Mod.) there are 128 voice polyphony and the ability to tweak all registers with full control over volume, pan, octave and fine tuning, separately for each register.
Precisionsound has added filters, ADSR envelope, Arpeggiator, Distortion, Cabinet simulator and much more. With the detailed sampled core sound of the Maestrovox and the added functionality you get screaming leads, blippy sequences and old school analogue tones.
Maestrovox Ps-Mod costs $19 (+$11 on DVD) you need the full version of NI Kontakt (not the free player) to use this library.
