24th July 2009
Bolder Sounds has announced the release of two new sample libraries for Kontakt and EXS24: Harmonium and Harmonica. Also, with any Bolder Sounds purchase until the end of July, 2009, you can buy one Bolder Sounds library and get a second library of equal or lesser value for free.
The Harmonium was sampled in 4 articulations as well as key press and release noises for each key. Programming utilizes the modulation wheel to emulate the pumping of the bellows via amplitude and filter modulation.
Bolder Sounds has also released Harmonica, a sample library featuring the sounds of a Marine Band harmonica (in the key of A) by the Hohner Company. The samples are 24-bit mono with no loops for a natural sound and total 31 megabytes. Bolder Sounds originally recorded these samples in stereo but decided to sum them to mono for the final version.
