Melbourne by Organic Instruments

Elemental Studio also updated with plug-in export

Organic Instruments Melbourne field recording virtual instrument Elemental Studio create custom plug-ins

Organic Instruments produce a range of software instrument that run in Elemental Player, their own free-to-use virtual instrument platform. They also offer Elemental Studio, a software package that can be used to create custom virtual instruments, which has just gained the ability to export self-contained plug-ins and standalone instruments for sharing or resale. 


The latest addition to the instrument collection, Melbourne, has been created entirely from field recordings gathered in locations across Melbourne, Australia. The instrument shares the same simple GUI design as the rest of the company’s range, with a set of icons providing access to the core sounds, and an ADSR envelope section joined by a Dynamics module containing Gain, Panning and Velocity Range parameters, and a built-in reverb. As for the content, the Melbourne is equipped with an interesting array of sounds that range from the city’s iconic tram network to the call’s of the smallest species of penguin on the planet!

Elemental Studio Update

Alongside the launch of the new instrument, Organic Instruments have announced an update to Elemental Studio, a software application that allows users to create their own Elemental Player instruments. With the release of its latest version, the application can directly export virtual instruments as independent VST3, AU and AAX plug-ins, or standalone applications. The export will remove all Organic Instruments branding and requires no coding, offering users an easy way to make their own plug-ins to share and sell under their own brand. 


Melbourne runs in Organic Instruments’ free Elemental Player, which is supported on PCs running Windows 7 and above, and Macs running macOS 10.13. VST3, AU and AAX plug-in versions are available, along with a standalone application.

Melbourne is available now, and is being offered at an introductory price of $49 until 24 April 2024, after which it will cost $85.
