Tube-Driven Synth Sampled

The Hammond Solovox was probably the first commercial monophonic valve synthesizer made and it is completely tube technology under the hood, producing a very warm and organic sound. Hammond started to sell it in 1940 and the first model (Model J) is the one that Precisionsound have used to produce the Solovox SampleSet.
The natural range of the Solovox is F1-B6. Divided into 4 registers; "Bass", "Tenor", "Contralto" and "Soprano". 4 different tone colours; "Deep", "Full", "First voice" and "Second voice".
The Solovox SampleSet contains 531 24bit mono samples mapped in:
  • 12 programs for HALion 1.1
  • 14 programs for NI Kontakt 1.5.3
  • 23 programs in 1 SoundFont bank for use in EXS24, Reason NN-XT, Rapture, Emulator X2 and almost any sampler for both MAC and PC.
All formats are included when you buy the library.
Pricing and Availability:
Solovox costs $39 (+$11 if you want it on CD). More information and demos:
