Our goal while capturing the instrument was to maintain its character, flaws and imperfections, to maintain its organic value, unpredictability and obscurity.
Together with broadening the library significantly with newly recorded sample material, improvements on the previous patches, adding many more new ones experimenting with both parts of the library content + nice new GUI elevate this pack towards a more complex utilization.

I found this mandolin hanging on a wall in a dark corner of my cellar. I bought it about 10 years ago and I played it for some time, but then turned to another instruments and good old mandoline got down there. When I saw it after such a long time I knew immediately, that its time has come again. The result is a mandolinesque experimental library, what is emphasized by quite a lot of percussive sounds I got from its body, neck, strings beating and knocking them with my hands. Old Mandolin is not meant to be an exact sonic portrait of this instrument
Far more than just an Old Mandolin!
Don't let the name fool you. Yes, this instrument is based on an old mandolin. But the developer has managed to create a whole universe of bewitching sounds from the original samples. A vast amount of Basics, Extras and Multis is there for you to explore. You'll be inspired, I promise!
