Soundiron has released UFO 61, the newest addition to their vintage keys series, which they describe as a retro synthesizer from the '70s for Kontakt. Here's the story in their own words...
Soundiron's UFO 61 is a vintage five-octave electronic organ from Italian instrument maker Viscount. Built in the 1970s, this simple synthesizer has a smooth, quaint tone with a warm, pleasantly fuzzy texture. Like many early suitcase organs and portable synths that proliferated during the era, it has just a few core instrument voices, a single speaker, simple rhythm box and a basic selection of classic organ controls.
We've captured 12 different articulation types containing infinite sustains and tight staccatos. We’ve also created 20 custom factory FX presets and 30 unique sound-designed synth patches, pads, drones and atmospheres from the raw source to give you a full range of creative options while capturing the aesthetics and cultural moment of the 1970s. UFO 61 just the ticket for classic sci-fi soundtracks, electronic music and anything that needs a hint of mellow retro flavor.
UFO 61 was recorded in a dry studio using a pair of Neumann TLM 103 large diaphragm microphones. We recorded its stock presets with sustains and staccato samples for each key. The included octave, vibrato and FX rack give you an easy-to-use interface to completely customize and shape its fat analog sound to fit a variety of creative styles.
This library contains a fully-customizable user interface, modular FX rack and 20 custom factory presets along with a wide variety of hand-crafted signature sound-designed ambient and cinematic content - created from the raw acoustic source to give you tons of inspiration and complete creative possibilities. UFO 61 lifts off with an out-of-this-world sound that will abduct your heart, probe the outer limits of your inner space and launch your tracks into orbit.
