60’s Chord Organ

A rich sounding Bontempi-esque chord organ + pad...

The story

I bought this towards the end of 2018 to try and get myself out of a creative slump. I searched through gumtree for something interesting and affordable I could sample and found this thing. It sat in a corner of my living room for months gathering dust before I finally decided to sample it. Its loud, smells like its from the 60’s once the fans get going, and a few of the high noted don’t work properly.

I recorded it with an SM57 placed fairly randomly above it. The high notes that don’t work swell in to a nice weaker note so I turned them into a couple of pads.

I recommend the reverb pad!

    Being a fan of fan organs, I thought I knew what to expect when I loaded this up, but I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent pad sounds also included. The inclusion of those sounds made this sample pack far more usable in a wide variety of musical situations. This is worth the download!

    This is a very cute little instrument that is worth it because of the pad patches. The main instrument itself is cute as well, but I see it fitting in very little occassions. There are no ways to tweak any instrument though, it's just plug-n-play all the way. You should give it a try!
