Soniccouture releases one of the most requested instrument from their users over the last few years, the Ondes Martenot.

Perhaps one of the most enigmatic musical instruments of all time, The Ondes Martenot ( literally ‘Martenot Waves’) was invented by Maurice Martenot in 1928. The original unreliable tube-based design was refined and later models remained in production until 1988. This is not just a sample library, though ; it’s a fully modelled sampled instrument, using Kontakt 4.2’s new optimised convolution processors to model the 3 Ondes Martenot loudspeakers in detail, extensive sampling of each Ondes oscillator and a full graphic interface.
