On offer here is a beautiful
string/pad patch from our incredible Hammond
Novachord in Kontakt 3.5 format.
Especially recorded and prepared for
this Freepack and not available in the commercial
library, it is not compromised in any way and is
extensively multi-sampled across the 72-note
keyboard range with long, luxurious samples that
breathe and wheeze and grunt their way through the
169 valves, thousands of capacitors and miles of
carefully hand-loomed wiring.
The Novachord surely has to go down
as one of the finest string synths of all time -
certainly the most organic. The six channel
electro-mechanical vibrato effect is just heaven.
How many string synths do you know of where you can
just lean against a key and it sounds interesting -
or lean against five adjacent keys and it sounds so
tense and creepy?! These sound are so alive thanks
in part to the vibrato reeds being so random (and
sometimes 'crunky') in nature.
Like all of Hollow Sun's Kontakt
library, this Freepack is in Kontakt 3.5 format. It
can be used in Native Instrument's free Kontakt
Player where you will have full functionality.
However, it will time out after 30 minutes as a
limitation of the Player/Kontakt demo. It is
possible to re-launch the Player after it has timed
out, however if you can live with that.
