SamplesLoops Wavesfactory releases "Little Harmonium" for Kontakt

Wavesfactory - Little Harmonium

We sampled an harmonium from the late XIX century. The harmonium, or pump organ, is a type of reed organ that generates sound with foot-pumped bellows.
This particular organ only has one stop, we created a Facebook album to show you the actual instrument.
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...6943180&type=3

It has 3 optional round robin (repetitions)t and 1 velocity layer. The volume of the instrument depends on the amount of air that you put inside using the foot-pumped bellows. If you go faster, you can hear the volume changes. That's been modelled inside Kontakt and you can replicate that sound using the modwheel.

Attack, release volume, sample offset, EQ, flip stereo, spread (from stereo to mono) and octave voicing controllabe directly from the GUI.

Very cool demos and the price is interesting but too bad the GUI is old Kontakt 3 style.
I know, I'm addicted to nice GUIs, for some reason they help my workflow.

Yes, I know what you mean.
The problem is that Kontakt 3.5 only supports this kind of default GUI knobs and buttons. We would have to use Kontakt 4.1 or superior in order to have custom GUI elements. That means that people with Kontakt 3 wouldn't be able to open the library (is there anybody working with Kontakt 3?)
But you're right, we also love nice GUIs.

I like it. There is quite a lot of room sound though, and it doesn't seem to be adjustable. Correct? Still...very usable and musical.

Sounds great! Thank you for continuing to respect backward compatibility for those of us who've opted out of the NI forced-upgrade march.

That's controllable with the "release volume" knob. Check out the second half of the video where each knob is tweaked.
