    Hammond Novachord library?

    I\'d love to see one of the more ambitious developers sample the Hammond Novachord (some info here: Novachord site.

    It has a truly distinctive sound than would really turn heads, and being essentially an organ, should be relatively simple to sample - few velocity layers needed, just getting loop points would be the task. That and keeping it working and in tune long enough to complete the project!

    I did some conversions for a web site some years ago of some early recordings of the unit - absolutely amazing! One track featured \'trumpets\' that sounded like the \'20s recordings of flapper-style music, those doo-wakka-doo horns.

    There are a few working models in existence, I believe one is in San Jose. It would be a shame to let this magnificent machine disappear, only 1096 of them were made and there is NOTHING that sounds like it...

    Great idea Dasher.

    I\'d put the Novachord along side an Ondes Martenot, a Baldwin Electric Harpsichord and a cymbalom in the list of must-have sampled exotica.

    Hope the right folks are watching this thread.
