Soundiron tells us that their Bontastic! Vintage Organ instrument captures the retro sound of the rare Bontempi B4 Electronic Table Organ. Here's the story in their own words...

The instrument's vivid orange plastic exterior echoes the popular aesthetics of the 1970s and early 1980s during which time the organ was produced. The Bontempi organ that Bontastic! recreates is deceptively simple -- 25 keys and 8 chord buttons, no stops or options. But with Bontastic! we here at Soundiron have retrofitted a classic instrument and unlocked all the potential from a classic piece of music equipment.

The library was recorded using a stereo pair of low-noise Neumann TLM 103 microphones to capture the full acoustic range of the instrument. Sustaining notes for each key were recorded with two round robins, as well as four round robins for staccato notes. The same sustaining and staccato articulations were recorded for all eight of the chord buttons (A#, C, F, and G chords, both major and minor), as well as a variety of key and motor effects. The included octave, vibrato and FX rack give you an easy-to-use interface to completely customize and shape this classic retro sound.

Bontastic! comes equipped with flexible control features, like Swell, pitch Glide, Attack, Release, Vibrato, and Octave as well as advanced LFO, Filter and Arpeggiation systems. There's also a complete DSP effects rack, including convolution reverb with dozens of unique spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and plenty of otherworldly FX impulses to fully explore and endless variety of strange and unexpected sonic manipulations

This 1.2 GB library library includes 358 samples and 22 nki presets with a custom user interface for the full version of Kontakt 5.5.2 and later (OSX 10.8 or later / Windows 7 or later required). All of the samples are unlocked 24bit/48kHz wavs that you can use in any standard wav-compatible program or plugin you like.
