Ueberschall has released Funky Tonewheels, which is described as "a dirty-played old tube Hammond Organ, slightly overdriven, and offers the perfect spice for any production where an authentic organ is needed".
This Elastik Player-powered loop library contains soloistic played organ licks, many funky rhythm grooves and various chord- and bass-grooves. Even unusual and mad played styles found their place in this soundbank.
The whole spectrum of Hammond playing techniques is available from single lines to shearing styles, from drawbar changing loops to varied Leslie speaker's speed and much more.
19 Tonewheel-kits offer an opportunity to get inspired by lots of phrases, licks and harmonies.
For this recording, a Hammond Organ C3 and its Leslie 147 was microphoned with 3 Neumann Mics (Treble Rotator 2 Mics, Woofer Rotator 1 Mic) using RME Micstasy Hi End A/D converter.
The sound library comes along with the Elastik 2 loop player for real-time time-stretching and pitch-shifting, among other great features.
Content: 1 GB, 19 Organ Kits, 537 Licks.
Funky Tonewheels was produced by Uwe Kinast and Hakan Türközü, who also played the organ for this library.
