TRIPLE HEADER 2 is a new 3-disc set available at a special bundle price, packaged in a single jacket. By popular demand, we’ve ported three more Orchestron sounds to the Optigan®, and have also dug into the Optigan® master tape archives for more previously unreleased material recorded 40+ years ago.
CELLESTE features the Orchestron CELLO scale, along with a newly arranged and recorded accompaniment featuring Celeste and Glockenspiel in 3/4. These light sounds complement the low, warm tones of the cello nicely. (SFX tabs: Glockenspiel, C-G-D-A-E major chords)
FOLK GUITAR & FLUTE pairs the Orchestron FLUTE scale with an unreleased rolling guitar accompaniment and drums/percussion from the Optigan® master tapes.
LATIN GUITAR & TRUMPET features the Orchestron TRUMPET scale, along with more previously unreleased guitar/drums/percussion accompaniments from the Optigan® master tapes. (Note: The A and E major chords on this disc are true A and E major chords, which means that the Bb, F, G, D, and E dim chords are NOT true dim chords. The C and A dim chords are the only true dim chords on this disc.)
These three discs represent the open/simple sound of many of the original Optigan® disc titles- sounds that have become perennial favorites due to their wide applicability and haunting qualities.

Considering possibly making a new disc with Harpsichord for keyboard and with Hurdy Gurdy for the buttons?
