  • Contains stereo wav organ note recordings and sampler instruments for Kontakt 5, Kontakt 4, Ableton Sampler, EXS24 and Reason NN-XT

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! 

Let’s Recap

  • Free Organ Virtual Instrument
  • Painstakingly sampled from a 150 year old instrument
  • Incredible sound quality
  • Includes 6 sound presets with multiple round robins

    This is a headache to figure out how to download. I only have part one of the files and there is no library or anything to see what you already have downloaded, and now I can't get parts 2 and 3 Reply

    Thanks for providing this! I've able to download and install in a Yamaha MODX using SampleRobot Montage (which is free if you can find a genuine Montage serial number).

    The samples are all very clean with minimal reverb, which makes them ideal for live performances.

    For those that don't know, the Leeds organ is now undergoing restoration (as of early 2023) and so this is the only way to hear it at the moment. Reply

    Ok - I finally figured out how to install this wonderful . And it worth it.

    1. download the 3 folders

    2. put them into a new folder all together

    3. extract them individualle within the new folder using e.g winzip or similar program (google unzip rar)

    4. place the folder with the extracted new folders (dont rename) in your music folder, Kontakt folder or wherever you have your samples.

    5. in Kontakt (NOT Kontakt Player / Kontakt 7 or the like which isnt the same. It may not show "player" in the upper left corner!) you can drag and drop the file from the extracted folder 1/Sampler Instruments/Kontakt 5 Custom GUI/Leeds Town Hall Organ.

    Now you can play it. If you load it into the player version of contact it will show "DEMO". This wont be the case here.

    Enjoy and make some great music :-)

    I think the reason that people are having trouble with Kontakt, is because the instrument was made for Kontakt 5 and not 6. Not sure how to resolve other than reopening. Reply

    Nothing is free. Samples are working just a few minutes after that, no playable sound like I just play underwater. More minutes later, the program asks for a full Kontakt licence. At least for a free version some samples should be playable. The sample files are dissapearing,... just like that. Cannot be found anymore. At least, for a free version, some samples should be playable. Nothing just fake stuff and waisted time. Reply

      It's common knowledge when searching for Kontakt libraries that you need the full version of kontakt, this instrument is free. Don't complain that you can't use this because of your own doing, it's not their fault it's yours, it's unbelievable that something this good is free. Reply

    • Martin

      I use this beautiful instrument with a lot of joy - and it is free!
      Of course do You get only the instrument itself for free. You still need to buy a player. With demo versions of players You get restrictions in playing time. For Kontakt this is exactly 15 minutes. Same is, if using Kontakt with any other instruments from any source...
      But if You want to avoid the cost of Kontakt player licence, the organ is even provided for different players. The cheapest starts at around 80€.
      And You even have each single WAV-file available. With some knowledge and time You could even built the instrument by Your own from that... Reply

    Thank you so much! I got it loaded into Kontakt 5 very easily and it works perfectly. I had trouble automating the preset changes in FL Studio but to my utter delight found cc# automation was extremely easy to automate in Cubase. What an absolutely generous offering - and the sound is exactly what I desired from such a beautiful organ - powerful rich sound with such deep beautiful bass. It's utterly incredible! I'd happily pay if you were selling a collection of different pipe organs. Just a hint there... Reply

    Extracting the .rar files with PeaZip instead of 7-Zip fixed the missing files problem for me. It was a data error in my case when I tried it with 7-Zip. I see people are complaining that K_50_Pre3_C2_RR2.wav and K_8_Pre5_D#0_RR2.wav are missing. Here they are:

    I downloaded this instrument on 15 Feb. 2018 (all three RARs in ONE folder), extracted only the FIRST one, moved it to my Kontakt folder after extraction, and it works without a problem. Perhaps people should learn to first READ instructions before attacking.
    I am looking for a description of each of the six presets, but don't seem to find it anywhere on this page. Is there anybody who can help me out, please? I'm not an organist, so I have no idea what the differences are among the presets. Reply

      This confused me too. I think parts 2 & 3 unpack automatically with part 1. I used WinZip for Mac. The Reason NN-XT preset files opened straightaway in Reason and I'm off... awesome. With Reason you can load each preset as a new instrument in the sequencer and have them all available at the same time :) Reply

      There are VST's / standalone programs that can play the instrument.

    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
