Optigan.com has released a pair of new sound library discs for the Vako Orchestron, Solo Trumpet and Solo Trombone.
Solo Trumpet is a new sound for the Orchestron. This is an actual acoustic trumpet sound, taken from the original Optigan/Orchestron master tapes, but never actually heard on any Optigan or Orchestron disc, until now.
Back in the day, before sample libraries and before digital samplers, there were primitive sample playback keyboards like the Mellotron, the Optigan & the Vako Orchestron. Their lo fi characteristics make them interesting instruments, despite their multiple flaws.
For several years, Optigan.com has been creating new and updated discs for the Optigan and Orchestron. Their latest discs include three libraries for the Vako Orchestron: Flute, Cello & Vibraphone.
