Sound Dust has announced the release of Orgone 2 for Kontakt with a 30% off introductory offer.
Orgone 2 began as an experiment around the thought "what would a Hammond organ with sawtooth waves sound like ?" Slowly the idea grew into a huge modular machine that combines multisampled waveforms from several classic synths into a 1GB+ Kontakt sample instrument that goes way beyond the possibilities of any of the originals.
So what's inside?
- Moog Voyager sawtooth and square waves - 24-bit, 8 second samples of every note.
- Dsi Pro 2 narrow square waves - 24-bit, 8 second samples of every note.
- Yamaha CS15 square waves - 24-bit, 8 second samples of every note.
- Roland SH101 saw tooth + sub waves - 24-bit, 8 second samples of every note.
- Moog unfiltered noise - 24-bit, 8 second samples of every note.
Orgone 2 uses the basic additive architecture of the drawbar organ to create a deeply malleable instrument with huge polyphony and a complex but relatively simple operating system. It then adds the filters, envelopes, LFOs, etc. of subtractive synthesis to each individual drawbar. It's like having 4 classic 11 oscillator synths in one modular box.
Because the quirks and character of the original ageing synths (30 plus years in the case of the CS15) have been retained Orgone 2 has a living organic sound.
