Legendary lo-fidelity sounds from 70's analogue sample players
Nord Keyboards are very pleased to announce new sounds in the free Nord Sample Library from the legendary Optigan and Orchestron.
The Optigan and Orchestron were successors to the famous Mellotron and Chamberlin-machines. They were analog, mechanic sample players but Optigan and Orchestron used optical discs for storage, making them considerably more transportable than their one-tape-machine-player-per-key predecessors and also more affordable. Changing sounds was now simply a matter of swapping discs, but the sound fidelity attainable with these optical discs was very limited.
Famous users include Kraftwerk (the 'Choir' sound on Radio Activity is the Orchestron), Elvis Costello, Devo, PJ Harvey and many more.
All samples are unretouched and include original mechanical noises and artifacts for maximum vintage authenticity!
Head over to the Nord Sample Library to listen to some sound demos and download the new sounds now!
