Sonokinetic releases Carousel, a freely downloadable (for a limited time only) fairground organ sample library for Kontakt Player by Native Instruments.
Carousel is a reboot of Sonokinetic’s old fairground organ sample library, which was released ten years ago. The newly released version of Carousel features fully remastered samples and a brand new user interface for Kontakt Player.
Sonokinetic re-edited the old Carousel samples by fixing some minor tuning issues and removing the background noise. That said, more significant improvements were made on the GUI front. The new Carousel interface offers several useful features, including the “Triple Trouble” button, which layers three notes for a thicker sound.
The UI now also features volume controls for each register and the ability to use the original tuning for a more authentic sound. The percussion samples use round-robin variations to ensure a more natural-sounding performance.
Carousel is fully compatible with the free Kontakt Player plugin by Native Instruments. You don’t need the full version of Kontakt to use this virtual instrument.
Here’s how the team at Sonokinetic describes the Carousel sample library:
10 years ago, we took a trip to the funfair and recorded a passion project, the original fairground Carousel. This heritage instrument reminds us of childhood fun, candy floss, and steam engines, so we wanted to retain all of that joy and excitement within the virtual realm.
