Sound Dust releases Hammr+ Tonewheel Organ for Kontakt

Sound Dust has released Hammr+, which is one part of the Hammr Suite - a classic tonewheel organ sample set developed by Sound Dust with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded at Toyroom Studios in Brighton.

Hammr+ has all the capabilities you'd expect of a drawbar organ. But in true Sound Dust style it also moves a long way from the limitations of the original. By taking advantage of sampling technology and bespoke Kontakt architecture, Hammr+ is capable of new levels of control and sound possibilities that were inconceivable in the original 1959 instrument.

Details:

  • Every note of every drawbar of an unmentionable tonewheel organ sampled for 7 secs through a 1959 Leslie cabinet for around 1GB of uncompressed samples.
  • Individual control of volume, pan, ADSR, vibrato, saturation (amount, bass and tone) and tremolo (speed, fade and depth) for every drawbar.
  • Percussion 2nd and 3rds available at the same time, with control of octave and decay time.
  • Note off volume and decay control.
  • Velocity sensitivity control.
  • CC11 hard-wired to volume for expression pedal swells.
  • Leslie simulator with speed, treble/bass balance and distance controls.
  • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
  • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
  • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
  • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on / off to mimic the effects of ageing key contacts.
  • 70 presets including 30 classic sounds.
  • Chaos and reset controls for painless sound design.
  • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
  • Built in user manual.
  • €10 discount link for the MVintageRotary Leslie simulator by Melda Production.

Hammr+ is a downloadable Kontakt instrument that works in the full version Kontakt 4.2.4 and above.

Price: £30. Available from Sound Dust.

Here's a video walkthrough with Mikey explaining how it works and what it's capable of: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwhwTQKfl1Q

I love this organ. The only real comparison I can make is to Native Instruments B4II which is also ported to the Komplete series as a Kontakt instrument.

Anyway, this this just sounds great. The high notes don't get overbearing which is a huge problems w/ all the synth/sampled organs I've tried. The amount of tweaking you can do with this is insane. The distortion and leslie are great.

The instructional videos are really great too. Entertaining and highly instructional at the same time.

But basically, the underlying sampled instrument, to my ears, just captures the hammond sound amazingly.
