Embertone re-releases for free Harmonette instrument for Kontakt, VSTi, AU & RTAS

Embertone has re-released as freeware for Holidays its Harmonette, an instrument (Kontakt, VST, AU, RTAS) featuring sounds recorded from a rare antique instrument.

Is there a 12-step program for “sampling-random-stuff-aholics”? Let us know if you’re aware of such a group (we’ll bring Peaslee and the gang along with us)… but until then, we’ll keep capturing these random, beautiful specimens of sound.
The Harmonette is a rare, antique instrument, and in all of our research we could not find a similar one! It looks like a recorder, but functions and sounds more like a melodica. And it’s super old – our best guess is somewhere between 60-80 years.

The Christmas-like colors inspired us to offer the Harmonette as a free, time-limited instrument… the window of opportunity to download this will be very small. So what are you waiting for!? Grab this instrument and make some music!
