An Incredible Instrument


The picture speaks for itself. Within the beautifully decorated town hall of the city of Leeds in England lies this spectacular organ, towering high into the music hall and silencing the sounds of the city with its earth shuddering, rich, harmonic tones.

Meticulously Sampled


We spent some time with organist Dr Simon Lindley who told us all about how the instrument works, it's history and even a guided tour up in to the inside of the organ itself! Simon crafted 6 versatile presets for us and we began the painstaking process of sampling this incredible feat of engineering. Over the next few months we spent many evenings in the town hall recording every single note with multiple round robins and over 10 second note recordings to capture the true sonic character of the organ. 

Completely Free


Everyone involved in the project worked long hours and for free, so we felt that it was only right to give away the fruits of our labour and hope that the spirit of this incredible instrument could spread throughout the world and help people to craft wonderful music that moves people to do good things.

Custom Kontakt GUI


We packaged the sounds up into a custom Kontakt 5 instrument with a lovely photo of the organ in all of it's splendor, as well as sampler instruments for Kontakt 4, EXS24, Reason NN-XT and Ableton Sampler. We hope you enjoy making music and spread the word about this wonderful organ so others can too!

    Hey!

    I have a re-occuring problem with this library
    I can make projects and use it as any other library
    But if I close the project and try to re-open it for more work later, Kontakt crashes while trying to load the project giving me the message "Kontakt 5 has encountered a major problem and has been terminated"
    Any tips on how to fix it? Tried googling and contacted NI support without luck Reply

    For everyone Asking how to install: This is taken from the manual for another instrument and only for Kontakt, I guess, but it might help someone.

    "Please note this sample library requires a full retail version of Kontakt 5.1 or higher, and will only work for 15 minutes in the Kontakt Free Player. Please upgrade Kontakt to the latest version before installing the library.
    Once you have downloaded the separate .rar files, ensure that they are all in the same folder and then unrar the first file ‘part1.rar’ using WinRar for Windows or StuffIt Expander for Mac. The pack folder will then be extracted and you can save this anywhere on your computer.
    Please keep the internal folder structure of the sample pack the same and don’t remove or rename any of the audio files or folders. This will make loading the patches as smooth as possible.
    The pack consists of two separate Kontakt instruments, Ronroco Loops and Ronroco Multisamples. The instruments can be loaded via Kontakt’s built in browser by navigating to the Sampler Instruments folder and double clicking a .nki file." Reply

    Is there some manual on how to install this instrument for Kontakt 5... Thought being an experienced user, I can't get this running... :( Reply

  • Simon Holland

    I have used this for several months now and can't believe the quality. Absolutely amazing for a freebie. Do you plan to expand on it as a paid instrument with lower level controls (eg individual stops)? Many thanks for all the work gone into this. Reply
