Piotr Nowotnik - Lira Korbowa III burDron (KONTAKT)

Piotr Nowotnik - Lira Korbowa III burDron - this instrument is assembled entirely from the modified "Burdon" string Polish barrel organ. The originally recorded Lyra is usually tuned to C / G; however, for this Kontakt library, each of its drones was reconfigured and recorded in a 24bit more authentic sound. "Lira Korbowa-Pack Three" is the third part of the hurdy-gurdy collection. 

All sounds in this third instalment of "Lira Korbowa - Authentic Polish Hurdy-gurdy" library are organically extracted from the instrument built by Stanislaw Wyzykowski - one of the pioneers of hurdy-gurdy revival. No preservatives or frozen imports here! All content in the series is captured by the set of three microphones:

* condenser - positioned above the instrument and essential to catch all those wandering overtones,

* piezo-ceramic - sitting tightly near the bridge and ensuring that this ancient wood is not vibrating in vain!

* silver bullet - roaming where necessary to get the most unique experience: from depths of the body to the hinges of tangent box!

The keyboard is divided into three zones:

Left: processed double "D" stretched across one octave for extra low drone
Middle: drones including chromatic notes
Right: natural harmonics relayed into a playable chromatic keyboard

Velocity layers controls the friction: from slow wheel turning when a string is barely making a sound to high speeds when string is almost losing its grip on the wheel!

Harmonics have its natural sound divided into two velocity layers: low - for natural sounds; top - for vibrato (yes! harmonics + vibrato )

Also, don't be surprised if some TOP velocities will 'stall' the string! That what's happening if wheel is turned too fast - a harmonic chaos I couldn't help to capture This and more sonic surprises inside - just like with a real hurdy-gurdy.

* 4 round robins - for more organic hurdy-vibe!
* including all hurdy-gurdy grittiness! knocks, squeaks, imperfections
* on average, 16 samples per drone notes, 8 samples per harmonic note
* one single patch that cover it all
* authentic sound without over-stretching the original recordings

Ever dreamed about your own Medieval Synthesizer? This is it.
I wish you all a lot of fun with the "burdDron"!
Until next instalment.

Developed in Kontakt 5.4.3 so you'll need this version or above to use this library.
