Street Organ

Sampled screeching and breaking sounds morphed into an organ....

The story

When Spitfire and HBO hosted the Westworld Scoring Competition, I was looking for a way to make my composition stand out. I thought that creating a sample instrument based off sounds from the clip might do the trick. From the car chase scene, I sampled the cars screeching and breaking. I thought it might make a cool synth instrument, but to my surprise (and initial disappointment) it sounded like an organ. Adding an organ sound to my score was hardly unique. But I ended up accepting it for what it was. At the end of my Westworld Competition video on Youtube, I show the sound I sampled and how I used it in the composition.

  • A cool noisy organ

    This organ feels quite unique with a lot of character, and that character is noisy and airy. So if you are looking for something similar, then you should definitely check this out! The GUI provides four different knobs, one of them being Dynamics which I feel is a LPF instead. I'd like to have the option to turn the noise down, and the ability to control the ADSR evelope would be great.

  • A really cool organ sound!

    The harp/dulcimer like attack gives this organ a unique flavour, whilst still keeping a sense of familiarity. The library has been recorded and programmed well and feels very playable. The controls on the GUI are also useful when looking to dial in your own sounds. Nice job!
