Retro Organ Suite 以非常原始和个性化的方式提供定义了近 100 年电子风琴乐器传统的声音。追溯到 1900 年代初期，一小群专业制造商首先设计和生产了这些优雅的乐器，作为用于礼拜场所和社会精英家庭的风力驱动管风琴的低成本替代品。后来在爵士乐合奏中占有一席之地，风琴在 20 世纪中叶的许多当代音乐流派中都广受欢迎。
到了 70 年代后期，由于技术进步和品味的快速发展，它们的受欢迎程度和商业影响力出现了惊人的下降。从那时起，这些乐器已经看到了一些数字形式的模仿，但它们的有形美感、用木头包裹的原始机械的声音和新颖的放大器在很大程度上已经消失，并在旧的商业录音中及时冻结。
– Yammy C10，一种全新的组合风琴，基于经过全面修复和重新焕发活力的 1970 年代机器
通过 Retro Organ Suite，我们旨在以毫不妥协的方式呈现和保留这一遗产的原始声音和威严，提供 7 种独特的乐器，展示我们认为最好的乐器。从出厂规格恢复的乐器开始，我们捕获了全面的样本集，确保准确记录每个乐器的音调范围和自然声音特征。录音是通过原始扬声器、旋转扬声器箱体、颤音、打击乐器、通过 D.I.箱子和通过各种各样的老式吉他放大器。顶级麦克风与备受推崇的前置放大器一起使用，以及精选的处理器，以提供最大程度的清晰度和保真度。除了忠实地保留过去几年使用的典型录音设置之外，这个巨大的样本库还允许提供多种音调选择。
在 UVI Engine™ 混合乐器中利用这些库，为您提供原始硬件的自然和未经处理的声音以及现代数字工作站的先进声音设计设施。声音可以自定义，从微妙到极端效果；塑造你完美的风琴，用 60 年代的意大利组合创造一个令人印象深刻的老式前奏，或者用 50 年代的哈蒙德制作一个育雏垫。提供的种类繁多的样本既可以作为目的地，也可以作为起点。 Retro Organ Suite 1.5 版引入了我们最新一代的 Rotary 效果器，带有量身定制的 DSP，可完美匹配复古装置的特性。
使用 Falcon 或 UVI Workstation，您可以轻松扩展和提升您的器官体验。根据您的喜好实例化尽可能多的乐器和踏板，并专门自定义每个乐器的键范围。例如，您还可以将上键盘设置为演奏 Super VX 独奏，将下键盘设置为 Hammer B，然后使用踏板从 GT2500 扫入声音。配置简单直观，所有控件都支持 MIDI-learn。
Retro Organ Suite以优美的细节充分体现了这些乐器的原始灵魂，并为他们迈向21世纪提供了一个平台。
Retro Organ Suite delivers in a very raw and personal way the sounds that define a near 100 year legacy of electronic organ instruments. Dating back to the early 1900s, a small and specialized group of manufacturers first designed and produced these elegant instruments as low-cost alternatives to wind-driven pipe organs for houses of worship and homes of the social elite. Later finding place in jazz ensembles, organs gained popularity in many genres of contemporary music through the mid 20th century.
By the late ‘70s, due to the rapid pace of technological advancement and tastes, their popularity and commercial presence saw extraordinary decline. Since that time these instruments have seen some emulation in digital form, but their tangible beauty, the sounds of their raw mechanisms clad in wood and novel amplifiers have largely vanished, frozen in time on commercial recordings of old.
What’s new in V1.5
– Yammy C10, a new combo organ based on a fully-restored and reinvigorated 1970’s machine
– Rotary effect improvements from the latest generation of our standalone plugin benefitting the entire collection
With Retro Organ Suite we aim to both present and preserve the original sound and majesty of this legacy in an uncompromising way, delivering 7 unique instruments that showcase what we feel are the best of best. Starting with factory-spec restored instruments we captured comprehensive sample sets, making sure to accurately document each instruments tonal range and natural sonic character. Recordings were made through the original speakers, rotary speaker cabinet, with vibrato, percussion, through D.I. boxes and through an assortment of vintage guitar amps. Top-grade microphones were used with well regarded preamps, along with a special selection of processors to provide the greatest degree of clarity and fidelity. This tremendous sample base allows for a huge variety of tonal options in addition to a faithful preservation of typical recording setups used in years past.
Leveraging these libraries within the UVI Engine™ hybrid instruments are created, providing you with both the natural and untreated sounds of the original hardware and the advanced sound design facility of a modern digital workstation. Sounds can be customized from subtle to extreme effect; shape your perfect organ, create a crushing vintage lead from a ’60s Italian combo, or build a brooding pad from a ’50s Hammond. The huge variety of samples presented can serve as both destination or starting point. Retro Organ Suite version 1.5 introduces the latest generation of our Rotary effect, with DSP tailor-made to perfectly match the characteristics of a vintage unit.
Using Falcon or UVI Workstation you can easily extend and elevate your organ experience. Instance as many instruments and pedals as you like and customize the key ranges of each instrument specifically. You can also, for example, set your upper keyboard to play a Super VX solo and your lower keyboard a Hammer B, then sweep in a sound from the GT2500 with a pedal. Configuration is simple and intuitive, and all controls support MIDI-learn.
Retro Organ Suite fully realizes the original soul of these instruments in beautiful detail, and provides a platform for them to move forward into the 21st century.
HAMMER B The King
Arguably the most famous tone wheel organ and rotary speaker cabinet ever produced, Hammer B was created with a vintage 1950s Hammond B3 and Leslie rotary speaker. The instrument is easy and intuitive to use with dual-layers providing motion between fast and slow Leslie settings. A natural preservation of the original, down to the pedal sounds, conveys a warm tonality and rich sense of history.
EX III The Flexible
Based on a 1979 KORG CX-3, this instrument provides the control and experience of real drawbars. EX III leverages several advancements to the UVI Engine™ including our new high-quality rotary cabinet emulation and wavetable oscillator. Tons of ready-to-use presets, extremely fast loading times, and deep editing capabilities combine to make a versatile and hard working instrument.
Super VX The Classic
Created with a pristine 1960s Vox Continental, a transistor-based combo organ, Super VX offers a choice selection of the most musical and interesting drawbar combinations. A widely used model, many familiar sounds will be found here. Easily invoke moments of nostalgia or thrust the airy tones into the future using the extensive Edit and FX sections.
Retrocorda The Nostalgic
Based on one of the smallest electric organs, Retrocorda was created with a classic 1960’s Philips Philicorda. The particular model used was tube-based, creating a relatively warm and smooth sound that we find particularly compelling. Clarity of the recordings is immediately visible as is a distinctly vintage tonality.
GT2500 The Monster
Created with the Eminent Grand Theater 2500, our GT2500 covers a huge range of sonic territory, from classic strings (an ancestor of the Solina string machines) to big organ stacks, percussions and more. GT2500 represents the first appearance of these sounds in software form. Additional recordings were made through onboard effects such as the spacy ‘Orbital’.
Combo K The Common
A combo instrument in itself, Combo K represents 5 combo organs (the Farfisa Compact Duo, Combo Compact, the Elka Classic, the Phillips AG7500 and the Hammond M100), representing the more affordable options of their time. We find that many cool and unique sounds can be found in unexpected places and Combo K is no exception. A diverse and irresistible selection of sounds that can be exhaustively customized.
Yammy C10 The Blue Challenger
Based on a fully-restored 1970s factory blue Yamaha YC10 combo organ. Yammy C10 delivers the authentic, charactered sound of this iconic stage keyboard including nearly every possible hardware configuration of the original. Deeply-sampled, full of subtle imperfections and tremendous when running through the Rotary effect, Yammy C10 is an expressive and organic sounding instrument.
