Vintage Hammond Drum Machine For Kontakt

Forgotten Keys tells us that their FK14 Kontakt Instrument is based on the Hammond auto-vari 64, model 101300. This is the later version released in the early 1980s, and featured 64 rhythms, 6 breaks and 10 analogue sounds. It was originally designed to sit on top of a home organ - indeed, some top-of-the-range Hammond organs had the unit built in. Forgotten keys says that the FK14 is a faithful re-creation of most of the unit's features, with all sounds individually multi-sampled in high quality.


  • 10 multi-sampled sounds.
  • 16 combinable re-created rhythms with 4 variations each.
  • 6 rhythm breaks assigned to 12 rhythms.
  • Volume, pan, tune and mute for each sound.
  • Note input and audio output routing.
  • Requires the full  licenced version of Native Instruments' Kontakt 4.2 or later.
