Anyone using a Harmonium VSTi?

Recommended Posts

I’m interested in the sound of this instrument. Also sometimes called a melodium. Sound wise and functionally, kind of a cross between an accordion (the use of air bellows to generate sound) and a mini pipe organ. In a larger version, their also called pump organs— Neil Young plays a pump organ on his Unplugged album and it sounds really cool.

What a great clip! John’s expressive hamming for the camera gave me a nice chuckle to start the morning. We all need that now.

Toontrack have just released one as part of their Hybrid Harp Instrument set - might not hit the spot for you though.

Saw that and wondered if the instruments that make up the hybrid instrument could be used separately, but I don’t think they can.

Thanks for the suggestion! Also, I was wrong about the Toontrack Hybrid Harp. You CAN access each instrument that comprises this hybrid instrument separately. So it essentially has a number of different and discrete instruments, including two Harmoniums. See the vid:
