Free VST instruments and more
Traditional Reed Organs operate by means of hand-or foot-driven bellows, which pump air over metal reeds to make them vibrate. But the so called “free-reed” instruments are much more ancient, like the Chinese mouth organs. The famous Melodica is also a “free-reed” instrument. The Harmonium in its smaller form is widely used in north Indian music and, as derivation, in pop and rock music too for its full and sweet sound.

The Harmonium in its smaller form is widely used in north Indian music and, as derivation, in pop and rock music too for its full and sweet sound. Within the new Peti SA the synthesis engine has been improved allowing more variations and better emulation of many harmonium and accordion types.
The name “Peti” comes from the Indian portable version of the Harmonium “peti” literally means little box in Hindi , although the structure is closer to that of a Western harmonium. While the Peti word “portable harmonium” in Hindi has been chosen as a tribute to the huge tradition of portable harmonium usage in India and Pakistan, “SA” has been added to the name of this new version of the plugin both to signify a new start, since SA is the name of the first note of the Indian scale, and as a tribute to the European origins, whereby SA refers to “Suprema Armonia”, for the centuries old tradition of accordion builders in Italy.
Keyboard noises are also emulated. Peti SA provides features to control many parameters while playing: See the [New in Peti SA] label for the new features Two Reed Banks, the core sound generators, with the same parameters available independently for each Bank. The two Reed Banks are not identical, swapping settings between Bank 1 and Bank 2 will subtly change the overall sound.
The parameters available for each Reed Bank are: Adds more upper harmonics in the timbre. Two different harmonic “flavours” for each Reed Bank.
This parameter controls the overall amount of harmonics added. Extra parameter for Bank 1. Phase difference between the two Banks.
Octave shift of resonance. Presence equalizer. Controls the effect which is often called “musette” or “tremolo”. Balance of the Chorus across the keyboard range. Pitch difference between the two Reed Banks. Octave, same pitch or a fifth. Controls the amount of “air noise”. Preset reverb. Emulates the size of the instrument. Controls the output level. Allows to set the volume unaffected by the number of notes played This emulates those harmoniums or accordions that due to air pressure distribution decrease their sound volume when more notes are played at the same time.
Controls the master fine-tuning setting. Rate and Mode, 11 types of automated pressure modulation. Allows you to adjust the instrument”s response to MIDI velocity. Sets the polyphony of Peti from 1 mono legato to This control emulates a mechanical “coupler” which is found in some Harmoniums.
It causes two notes to be played simultaneously by one key, with an interval which may be set to an octave, a fourth, or a fifth. This control shifts the keyboard tuning up to 12 semitones up or down. Selectable CC and AT, with adjustable depth, for several plugin parameters. And adjustable pitch bending range. Harmoniums, accordions, melodicas, organs and others. Microtuning Demo limitations:
This is a cumulative update patch, which works from any build. Summary of changes for build March 19, Faster program bootup. The SongPicker has sorting added. Each column can be sorted in forward or reverse order by clicking on the column. In the SongPicker, pressing the first letter jumps to that song using the sorted column.

Mar 7, Accordion VST: Akkordica is a Virtual Accordion, Harmonica and Melodica Melodica VST Audio Unit EXS24 KONTAKT: 32 (x86) 64 bit (x64). VST Warehouse | Over Free Plugins: Find absolutely free audio VST plug-ins , free virtual instruments, effects, hosts, Double precision (64 bit) floating point mathematical model. “Accordion” emulates a variety of accordion sounds. Sibelius 7 Sounds includes neither bandoneon or accordion sounds, I’m afraid. Ok, I just found out through this forum that 32bit VST do not work on the 64bit.
