FATTY 311 honors the tonal legacy of the Conn Prelude 311 organ. Our lovely Prelude had a real spring reverb unit, two 44 key keyboards, a Min-O-Matic rhythm machine, and tons of emulated sounds of clarinet, trombone, violin, guitar tremolo, and more.
FATTY 311 honors the tonal legacy of the Conn Prelude 311 organ. C.G. Conn Ltd., sometimes called Conn Instruments or commonly just Conn, was an American manufacturer incorporated in 1915. Its early business was based primarily on brass instruments manufactured in Elkhart, Indiana. During the 1950s, its best seller became the electric organ. After the household organ craze died down (50-70), Conn went bankrupt and was eventually bought by Steinway in 2000.
Charles G. Conn was a Civil War veteran of the U.S. Army who established a grocery and baking business in Elkhart, Indiana after the war. He also played cornet in the local community band. He started out inventing cornet mouthpieces, and by 1905, Conn had the world's largest musical instrument factory producing a full line of wind instruments, strings, percussion, and a portable organ.
Our lovely Prelude has a real spring reverb unit, two 44 key keyboards, a Min-O-Matic rhythm machine, and tons of emulated sounds of clarinet, trombone, violin, guitar tremolo, and more. The instrument's classic wooden body echoes the popular aesthetics of the 1970s and its beefy, warm analog sound can cut through any mix. We sampled its best sustains, staccatos, and effects in three microphone positions to bring your midi to life. You can easily use vibrato and a special "Octave" knob, which spices up your tone by smoothly rolling in lower and higher octaves. We've also included tons of custom FX patches and sound-designed ambient synth pads created from the source to make this library extraordinarily playable and versatile. Whether you're looking to recreate an old video game sound, huge synth bass tone or play straight from the hymnal, Fatty 311 can get you there!
The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 27 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 8 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
