We hope to have this item in stock soon, but for the time being, please order this item direct from Quilter Labs’ Panoptigon site. Sorry for the hassle!
Please note: In the past, we’ve provided fully printed jackets with many of our discs. Due to changes in production which now allow us to keep a constant stock of our discs, we no longer are printing jackets for them. The discs come in white jackets with small labels affixed which show the original artwork and descriptive text. Thanks for your understanding!
A new release in our line of Vako Orchestron discs, STRING ENSEMBLE. It’s unlikely that there will be sufficient demand to do a second run of 25 of these discs, so your best bet is to buy as many of these as you need while you can! Any future additional copies will most likely be done as one-offs, which are twice as expensive to produce, and thus will cost twice as much.
STRING ENSEMBLE is an entirely NEW sound for the Orchestron. The source is an acoustic string ensemble recording (voiced in octaves) from the original Optigan/Orchestron master tapes. This scale was never used for any Optigan® or Orchestron disc… until now! Please excuse my awful playing here, which is just a quick noodle to demonstrate the sound!
PLEASE NOTE: This disc WILL NOT play properly in an Optigan! They WILL play, but the sounds will NOT be mapped correctly to the keyboard- they will be mapped mostly haphazardly across the chord buttons. Please don’t order this disc expecting to easily use it in an Optigan. In the future we will be porting the Orchestron sounds to the Optigan- please be patient! 🙂
Stay tuned for more Orchestron discs, both new and remastered titles!
