About Carousel

We’re proud to present another genuine first,
“Carousel” a fairground barrel organ.

This library will give you full access to an original authentic Carousel barrel organ to compose your music with. Without hiring a music role producer, renting and evacuating a fun fair, cleaning the steam engines of excessive noise, pitching the organ and endlessly riding the Carousel. Just load up your UVI workstation or MachFive instance, set your voice polyphony to 300 and off you go.

With this instrument we’ve gone the whole nine yards and tried to capture it’s unique original distinctive sound. And in post production we spend a lot of time editing pitch, acoustics and tune to come up with an instrument patch that captures your imagination, takes you straight into the funfair and is easy to handle inside your DAW.

The instrument patch goes with the proven effective Sonokinetic MachFive or UVI workstation Instance tab configuration. Covering all ten registers, the percussion set, an acoustic perfect impulse response unit and an ingenious sample mapping solution to map all registers including the percussion on a 76 master keyboard range. Deep scripting of this instrument patch makes it perform like the real thing. Register knobs and stops are added for single play or tutti with or without percussion.

Sonokinetic pushes the limit again to capture a generic soundscape with a wide selection of user-friendly, easy to use Carousel fairground organ samples.

Carousel Registers and Tutti

Activating and deactivating organ registers is handled by the registers knob. The Tutti button plays a Tutti recorded register sound. If you like to have less or more registers accompany the total Carousel sound you can either deactivate the Tutti sound by pressing the Tutti knob and select your own register combinations.

Barrel organ percussion

To activate or deactivate the percussion samples use the square buttons with the percussion signs.

Test: Sonokinetic Carousel (German)

Kennen Sie die Szene aus “Das Auge”, in dem der Detektiv (Michel Serrault) auf dem Jahrmarkt ein erstes Polaroid der Serienmörderin (Isabelle Adjani) schießt? In dem Moment, in dem er das Bild in der Hand hält, setzt die Musik des Karussells ein, das sich im Hintergrund dreht. Und mit der Musik beginnt der Hauptteil des Films, die Geschichte kommt in Schwung.

Immer wieder habe ich nach diesem Sound gesucht und ihn nie gefunden. Das änderte sich, als ich mir das Demo der Library Carousel auf der Sonokinetics Homepage ansah, denn hier geht es exakt um diese vergessene Randgruppe unter den Orgeln: Den Leierkasten, die Drehorgel, die Kirmesorgel, Musikautomaten mit einem unvergleichlichen Charme, mal großartig, pompös-mechanisch und manchmal auch traurig-gequält.

Während Drehorgel und Leierkasten eher die kleineren Formate bezeichnen, handelt es sich bei dem von Sonokinetics gesampelten Instrument um eine stattliche Konstruktion, nahe an den Dimensionen eines Wohnwagens. Ihre Blütezeit erlebten die mechanisch betriebenen Pfeifenorgeln zwischen 1880 und 1920. Die Großen unter ihnen hatten die Aufgabe, eine leibhaftige Kapelle zu ersetzen und verfügten über einen entsprechend voluminösen Sound.
