VintageKeyboardSounds.com presents AUTHENTIC GIBSON G101 ORGAN SAMPLES from our own Gibson organ. This organ is the same model used by Ray Manzarek of The Doors.

As we have not seen any synthesizer or sampler that truly replicates this distinctive organ, we decided to purchase one and sample it into our Yamaha Motif ES. As we did with our popular Mellotron samples, we are now offering you the opportunity to replicate the sounds of The Doors for a very reasonable price.

The Gibson G-101 was used extensively by Ray Manzarek. Although he used a Vox Continental for the first two albums (The Doors and Strange Days), the plastic keys of the Vox kept breaking. He soon switched to the Gibson (primarily due to the fact the G-101 has a flat top where he could place his Rhodes Piano Bass). Although many thought Manzarek used a Farfisa (as the profile of the two organs are similar), the sound of the Gibson is nothing like a Farfisa. The Gibson was manufactured by the Lowrey Organ Company and has the distinctive Lowrey sound... which soon became the distinctive Doors sound.

You can hear this organ on the albums Waiting For the Sun, Morrison Hotel, The Soft Parade, LA Woman, Absolutely Live, and In Concert. Manzarek also plays it on many of The Doors videos including The Ed Sullivan Show (Light My Fire), The Smothers Brothers Show (Touch Me), and Live at the Hollywood Bowl. In addition, music historians believe that the G101 may have been used for the psychedelic harpsichord sound on the Beatles' Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.

We carefully sampled every note from each of the voice tabs. The samples are seamlessly looped so you hear no clicks or pops. These samples include all 48 keys and notes from each of the following voice tabs on the G101:

Trombone 16'(Piano S-St-P)
Clarinet 16'
String 8'(Harpcd S-St-P)
Trumpet 8'
Kinura 8'
Flute 8'
Nazard 2-2/3'

There are also sample sets of the following favorite Manzarek combinations:

All white tabs down (Classic Combo Sound)
All white tabs down with Mixture and Brilliance tabs down (Light My Fire)
All tabs down
All tabs down with Mixture tab down (When the Music's Over)
All tabs down with Brilliance tab down (Love Street)
Plus a bonus sample set of the following Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds registration:

Vibrato ON / LIGHT / SLOW
Nazard 2 2/3' ON
Brilliance FULL
String 8' ON
Flute 8' ON
Sustain LONG

You may combine these samples or use the preset combinations to achieve the distinctive sounds that Ray Manzarek used for the later Doors albums (from Waiting For the Sun through LA Woman). By adding effects from your sampler like distortion, sustain, vibrato, and repeat/delay, you can achieve the sounds from Not to Touch The Earth, Waiting for the Sun, and Unknown Soldier.

These samples will be delivered to you on CD-ROM. We are including wave (.wav) and aiff (.aif) files that will play on most samplers. We also offer Motif voice files for owners of the Yamaha Motif ES and XS. These files are easily loaded as sample waveforms so you may import them directly into your Motif ES or XS (step-by-step instructions included). Please email us if you wish for us to include either the Motif ES or XS files.

These samples are compatible with any sampler that reads wave or aiff files, including the Yamaha Motif, Roland Fantom, Korg Triton, and many Kurzweil, E-mu, Ensoniq, and Akai MPC samplers. They are also compatible with most of the leading software samplers, including Reason, Pro Tools, Logic, Acid, Halion, E-mu, SoundFont, Sound Forge, Cakewalk, Sonar, Emagic, and Cubase. We can also custom format these samples for other samplers. Please send us an e-mail indicating if you need a special format.
