Version: Kontakt 5.5.2 / WAV / V1
Single Sample Creative Emulation
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
The Profanity Organ has the possibly silliest looking interface for a surprisingly useful drawbar organ.
This is not another multi-sampled rendition of a real Hammond organ.
Instead it simulates the physical behaviour of the all the component parts – including the tonewheels, drawbars, key contacts, scanner, and all the other wonderful circuitry of the amplifier and rotary speaker cabinet – all coming together to recreate that sought-after Hammond organ sound.
The instrument was designed to meet the needs of live performance and had to be light weight and reliable, but also sound great. So all of this has been created from a single sine wave sample, using the power of Kontakt and some specially designed scripting to bring the instrument to life.
You can get everything from squabbling jazzy dissonance to a soaring rich gospel anthem with an interface that is familiar, if only slightly hideous, to any organ player.

Cool physically modelled Hammond Emulation (with nearly no RAM)
This is a great idea, very well scripted. Memory in Kontakt 6 is 1.17 kB here And the library size is small, too. But this gives another light on all those heavy weighted libraries, which not always would sound better, but take lots of diskspace. So this comes nearly as a return to times, when VSTis had a small footprint and could sound great nevertheless.. It has tone wheels, rotator fx, reverb and that more possibilities for tweaking. Only one sinus sample is used. Bravo! It doesn't sound bad at all to me. You can even use the modwheel to give your playing more tremolo / hammond effect.
