A Brief History of The Royal Reed Organ

The Royal Reed Organ for NI Kontakt 5 is Precisionsounds’ flagship harmonium library.

The instrument source is a 400-pound suction air harmonium from the 1920s. It was made by the piano and reed organ company Östlind & Almquist (1888-1962), a purveyor to the Swedish royal court.

This harmonium features a whole range of high quality voices, from the low end 16’ Sub basses, all the way up to the 2’ Piccolo. The list of stops is impressive, and enables a great variety of timbres. Every stop has dedicated controls for on/off, volume, and fine tuning.

The keyboard is divided into two areas, with stops to control the voices on either side of the split. The developer’s goal was to be true to the original design, but also to extend its features in the digital realm.

In our version, you can precisely set the effect of the air pump on the sound, and shape the timbre of the registers using your modulation wheel and aftertouch.

This sample library ships with 40 presets that vary in character and complexity. Whether you’re into songwriting, traditional folk music, classical, sacred or experimental music, we hope these presets will give you a really good start with the library.

The Registers Page

The first page of the interface enables you to combine and mix organ registers, adjust dynamics, and set the organ pump effect.

Upper Registers

The Royal Reed Organ has eight upper registers. Each register has three dedicated controls. The screenshot on the right shows the controls for the Piccolo 2’ register.

  • Fine Tune: sets the pitch of the register, between +/-30 cents.
  • Volume: sets the level in decibels of the register.
  • On/Off: enables or disables the register.

The note range for all upper registers is C4 – G6 inclusive.

Lower Registers

The Royal Reed Organ has ten lower registers. Each of these has three dedicated controls.

  • Fine Tune: sets the pitch of the register, between +/-30 cents.
  • Volume: sets the level in decibels of the register.
  • On/Off: enables or disables the register.

The note range for the Subbas D 16’ and Subbas 16’ registers is F1 – C3 inclusive.

For all other lower registers, the note range is F1 – B3 inclusive.

Key Colouring

The range of the currently enabled registers is shown on Kontakt’s on-screen keyboard, the layout of each can be seen in the pictures to the right of this text.

Adjust The Sound To Your Playing Style With Ease!

“Royal Reed Organ” offers extensive control over all sound paramaters as follows:

Envelope

  • Attack: sets the time in milliseconds for the sound of the instrument to reach full volume when a note is played.
  • Decay: sets the time in milliseconds for the sound of the instrument to die away to silence when a note is released.

Start: sets the point at which playback begins in each recorded note, up to 500ms. Values above 0ms smooth the percussive character of note attacks.

Release

  • Volume: sets the level in decibels of the release samples that sound when a note stops playing.

This dial has a range of -36dB to +6dB. Turn it fully left to disable release samples.

Velocity

  • Sens: sets the relationship between how hard you strike the keys (MIDI velocity) and the volume of the sound.

At 0%, the volume of the sound is unaffected by how hard you play, which is typical for an organ. At 100%, the volume of the sound is strongly affected by how hard you play.

Pump

The pump effect recreates the organ mechanism by combining modulation of volume and tone with synchronised recordings of the air pump in action.

  • On/Off: enables or disables the pump effect.
  • Depth: sets the extent to which the organ sound is modulated by the pump.
  • Rate: sets the speed of the pump. Five tempo-synced speeds are available: bar, half-note, 4th, 8th, 16th.
  • Volume: sets the level in decibels of the pump noise.

The FX Page

The second page of the interface gives you access to sound shaping effects and modulation controls.

EQ

  • Lo Gain: sets the volume of low frequencies between +/-12 decibels.
  • Mid Gain: sets the volume of mid frequencies between +/-12 decibels.
  • Mid Freq: sets the centre of the frequencies from 600Hz to 7kHz.
  • Hi Gain: sets the volume of high frequencies between +/-12 decibels.

The Hi and Lo EQ frequencies have been pre-tweaked by Precisionsound to suit the instrument.

Stereo

  • Width: sets the stereo image of the instrument. At 0%, you hear the instrument’s natural sound.
  • Turning the dial counter-clockwise towards -100% narrows the stereo image, until mono at -100%.
  • Turning the dial clockwise towards +100% stretches the stereo image for an extrawide effect.

Reverb

  • Level: sets the volume of the convolution reverb effect.
  • Type: changes the IR of the convolution reverb.
  • Seventeen impulse responses are available, ranging from short springs to churches and cathedrals.

Disable the reverb by setting this menu to “Reverb off”.

Chorus

  • On/off: enables or disables the chorus effect.
  • Amount: sets the volume in decibels of the chorus effect.
  • Depth: sets the intensity of the chorus effect.
  • Speed: sets the rate at which the chorused signal is modulated in time.
  • Phase: sets the offset in degrees between the chorused signal and the dry signal.

Delay

  • On/off: enables or disables the delay effect.
  • Level: sets the volume in decibels of the delay effect.
  • Time: the gap in milliseconds between delay repetitions.
  • Feedback:  At 100%, the delay continues regenerating indefinitely.
  • Tone: sets HF damping – 0% provides no damping, and 100% provides full damping for a darker sound.
  • Spread: sets the stereo image of the repetitions – 0% is mono, and 100% is full stereo.

The Unique Piano-Forte Feature

The Piano-Forte controls are unique to the Royal Reed Organ, enabling adjustment of the instrument’s timbre in a natural-sounding way, using either the Kontakt interface or your MIDI controller. Piano-Forte simulates changes to the air pressure that powers the organ and has the following features:

  • Piano-Forte: sets the instrument timbre. Values above 12 o’clock increase the bite of the organ. Values below 12 o’clock soften its character.
  • Modulation Piano and Modulation Forte: set whether the current modulation sources will decrease or increase the Piano-Forte value from its current setting. These buttons are mutually exclusive.

The modulation sources are described below.

  • When set to Piano, the modulation sources will decrease Piano-Forte from its current dial setting – in other words, soften the timbre. When set to Forte, the modulation sources will increase Piano-Forte from its current dial setting – in other words, brighten the timbre.
  • Mod wheel: activates the modulation wheel (MIDI CC1) as a modulation source for Piano-Forte.
  • Aftertouch: activates aftertouch (MIDI channel pressure) as a modulation source for Piano-Forte.
