The story

Recorded by Angus Roberts-Carey in the dry soundstage of Spitfire Audio’s Studio B, this Harmonium (or Reed Organ) has bags of character. From every creek of the pedals, to the bellowing of the pumps, you can hear the full experience of this instrument recorded in surround.

The magic of sampling allows you to fade between the stops instead of just having them on or off.

    I really love this old organ sound. Well done in every way. Thank you for taking the time to put this together.

  • Awesome

    Love this Harmonium. The DS version struggles quite a bit/CPU hog but the Kontakt version is rock solid. Excellent work!

  • So much grit and character

    I love the feel and sound of this. The swells in particular are great with a big 'verb on it. Thanks so much Angus!

  • Cool organ

    I love the clanky old sound of the harmonium, it's totally distinctive and a bunch of fun to play with.

    Similar to another reviewer, sometimes I noticed samples not playing (Kontakt version). I suppose it adds to the clankiness. I'll try the DS version.

  • beautiful sound! is there a release control?

    Thank you for the hard work in making this, the overall sound has such a cozy warmth with lots of character! Is there any way to cut off the release in the Decent Sampler version? Every note has a long tail when I play it.
