Aerocity has released Vintage Chord Organ, a free NI Kontakt sample library featuring the lovely warm sounds of an old Magnus Chord Organ instrument from the 1960s.
A chord organ is a compact keyboard instrument which looks like a small reed organ, although it sounds quite similar to an accordion. I used to own a cheap Bontempi version of a chord organ a long while ago and I’ve always regretted selling it without sampling it first. That’s one of the reasons why I was so happy when I stumbled onto this free Kontakt instrument by Aerocity.
Vintage Chord Organ is a free sample library based on a Magnus Chord Organ, featuring 37 fully playable keys (with infinite hold time) and fixed tuning of the original instrument. The brief interview with Aerocity below contains additional information about the sampling process and some other interesting details. Read the entire BPB review here.
