AudioWarrior Pianos and Organs Reason ReFillPlay exquisite sparkling acoustic grand piano, smooth classic Rhodes Electric Piano, swirling Hammond B-3 Organ, oscillating Wurlitzer Organ, and cavernous cathedral pipe organ on your desktop with DSP effects like rotary speaker, wah, chorus, and reverb. This solid, great-sounding sound collection of historically famous keys will soon become your "go to" organ and piano sample library for music demos, TV commercials, film, or when you just want to tickle the keys on your laptop on the plane with your favorite set of headphones. Recorded and programmed for Propellerhead's Reason 3.0 by Greg Giametta.Sampled Hammond B-3 Organ 10 velocity layersThe influence of the Hammond organ can be felt everywhere. On any given radio station there's a good chance you'll hear the B-3. The Hammond is used in all types of music, including gospel, blues, jazz, funk, and rock. Keith Emerson used to take his B-3 and throw it around the stage, ride it like a horse, set it on fire, and stab it. Sampled Old Man Grand Piano 10 velocity layersThe concept of fashioning a keyboard to an instrument with strings, which vibrated when struck by hammers, was possibly conceived around the 14th to 15th century. For the next 250 years, the harpsichord was plucked, rather than struck. The clavichord was responsive to pressure of finger touch, its strings struck by miniature tangents. After the 1867 Paris Exposition, it was apparent that European craftsmen would have to emulate the characteristics the American grand pianos exhibited. German producers rose to the challenge. The piano's heyday lasted until 1914. The grand and upright pianos were mature instruments by 1870. The next 50 years saw mostly cosmetic modifications to the grand casework. Square legs replaced round, etc. Now you can enjoy 2 exquisite virtual acoustic pianos on your computer.Sampled Quasimoto Cathedral Pipes (wood) 10 velocity layersAs one of the oldest instruments still in use, the organ has a long and rich history. The organ dates back to classical antiquity. The earliest organs were hydraulic. The inventor most often credited is Ctesibius of Alexandria, an engineer of the 3rd century BC, who created an instrument called the hydraulis. The hydraulis was common in the Roman Empire, where its immensely loud tone was heard during games and circuses in amphitheaters and processions. Characteristics of this instrument have been inferred from mosaics, paintings, literary references and partial remains, but knowledge of details of its construction remain sparse, and almost nothing is known of the actual music it played. The sound is huge and moving.Sampled Cathedral Pipes (alloy) 10 velocity layersPipes may be classified in several ways, each of which results in a different timbre:by the material they are made of (wood or metal)by the mechanism of sound production (flue pipes vs. reed pipes, also called labial and lingual)by the shape of the pipe (cylindrical, conical, or irregular)by the construction of the ends (open or closed)Because a pipe produces only one pitch at a time, ideally there is at least one pipe for each controlling key or pedal. (Occasionally some pipes, especially in the bass, to save space or material, are rigged to provide multiple pitches like big recorders: this method was employed especially by a few builders in the early 20th century.) Thus, a keyboard with 61 notes would have 61 pipes per rank.Sampled Fender Rhodes Mark II Stage Piano 10 velocity layersThe Rhodes piano was invented in the 1940s by Harold Rhodes, and its principles are derived from both the celesta and the electric guitar. The action is similar to that of a conventional piano, but whereas in a conventional piano each key causes felt-covered hammers to strike sets of strings, in a Rhodes piano rubber-tipped hammers strike tuning fork-like constructions to sound the note.The tuning forks themselves are "unbalanced" or asymmetrical: one arm consists of a short, stiff metal rod (essentially a stiff wire) called a "tine" which is struck by the hammer, and the other arm is a tuned resonator resembling a piece of metal bar stock, sized to sound the appropriate note. The actual sounded note is too soft to be practical, so each tine vibrates in front of an electric-guitar-style magnetic pickup. The pickups' output is fed to an amplifier, which can be adjusted to produce the desired volume.The sound produced has a bell-like character not unlike a celesta or glockenspiel. Because the instrument produces sound electrically, the signal can be processed to yield many different timbral colors. Often the signal is processed through a stereo tremolo (which was called Vibrato on the Rhodes front panel) effects unit, which pans the signal back and forth between right to left; it is this "rounded" or chiming sound that is most typically called a classic Rhodes sound, which can be heard on, for example, many of Stevie Wonder's songs. The preamp with stereo panning is included on the "suitcase" models; the "stage" models lack the preamp.In the 1980s a set of Rhodes modifications done by a company called "Dyno My Piano" became popular: it made the sound brighter, harder, and more bell-like. It can be heard on many records from that time. When notes are played forcefully, the sound becomes less sweet, as nonlinear distortion creates a characteristic "growling" or "snarling" overload--skilled players can contrast the sweet and rough sounds to create an extremely expressive performance.Sampled Wurlitzer Piano 10 velocity layersThe Rudolph Wurlitzer Company, usually referred to simply as Wurlitzer, is an American company, formerly a producer of stringed instruments, woodwind, brass instruments, theater organs, band organs (orchestrions), and jukeboxes. Over time Wurlitzer changed to producing only its organs and jukeboxes, but it no longer produces either. The factory, in the same complex as that of the Eugene DeKleist company (another maker of band organs and orchestrions, acquired by Wurlitzer), is in North Tonawanda, New York, USA. It now houses apartments as well as separate factory units.There were a number of Wurlitzers in Britain in the period before the WWII (1939-45). The first was a very small instrument installed at the Picture House, Walsall in the West Midlands. A number were in the larger cinemas and broadcasts were made by the BBC on a regular basis. The more famous of these organs were at the Empire Cinema in London, The Ballroom at the tower in Blackpool, and at the Granada cinema in Tooting. British concert organist Reginald Dixon was well known for his performances on the Blackpool organ. The last new Wurlitzer to be installed in the UK was at the Opera House, Blackpool, in 1935 to the design of Horace Finch.All of the instruments and sounds of the AudioWarrior Pianos and Organs ReFill are available in Kreator XL plugin/standalone format.
