    Exclamation FREE release: Magnus Chord Organ by Audio Genetics Lab (Kontakt 3.5+)

    Hello everyone,

    Just a quick note that the Lab has finished a round of genetic extraction from some samples of a vintage 1970s reed organ, the Magnus Chord Organ. This instrument specimen is closely related to the accordion or harmonica, except that instead of bellows or lungs as air sources, it uses an electric fan. The timbre is similar, however, and this model had 3 melodic octaves and 12 maj/min chord buttons.

    Alongside the base creation of the Magnus, we also developed a few genetically related though altogether different creatures, with two patches leaning heavily towards a chip-tunes world with 8-bit bass and drumkit. There is also a patch designed specifically for wind controller players (or breath controller additions).

    Because this sample pack is coming from our organ archives, it is being made available for free to download. There are 7 patches altogether, and all require the full retail version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher to work. These samples are not compatible with the free Kontakt player. All of the raw aif samples are accessible in the download folders, for those who want to further mangle the audio genes of this charming old friend.

    Audio demos are available on our Lab website.

    WOW! I have one of these, and am quite familiar with the sound. Could make some great video game tracks with this sound.

    Any chance of an aria version of this?

    No plans for an Aria version, but the download bundle does give you access to all of the raw samples, so you could load them into your own player and get some basic functionality. This would obviously not get you the extra control and performance aspects that are coded into the Kontakt scripting engine for each patch.
