The Melodica Piano 32 in Kontakt form
Melodica Piano 32 as a multi-sampled Kontakt Instrument. Take advantage of the different characters of the four microphone types and mix your own original redma sound until it fits your taste perfectly
The Melodica Piano 32 is a nice looking easy to use and super warm sounding reed instrument made by the German company Hohner*.
The sound is generated by blowing air thru a mouthpiece into fine brass reeds like those used in Harmonicas. This one sounds really beautiful, smooth and rich.
This underrated instruments were used by musicians like UB40, Depeche Mode, The Gorillas, The Hooters, Supertramp and… you too name a few!
We are very happy to get our hands on one of these rare instruments in a very good condition. The Piano 32 Melodicas are little bigger than the other ones.
We have recorded this big black beauty with four different types of microphones thru well selected preamps after some time consuming experiments:
- Piezo Mic (attached to the chassis)
- Condenser Mic (placed 30 cm in front of the instrument)
- Dynamic Mic (placed 30 cm in front of the instrument)
- Stereo Mic (placed overhead)
Each microphone can turned in separately in the master area at the head of the instrument. So you can take advantage of the different characters of the four microphone types and mix your own original black bro sound until it fits your taste perfectly.
The noise from blowing air into the Melodica was separated from the musical material and made usable thru an extra mixing knob. The same processing we did with the clicks which were produced by pressing the keys on the Melodica. So you can now add/reduce the noise from blowing by turning the noise knob and add/reduce the clicks from the keys by turning the click knob.
