Le Parisien is a sample library for Kontakt based on three accordions.
It's a faithful recreation of the sound and behaviour of the real instruments.
Accordion collection for Kontakt
Recorded with three mic positions and multiple round-robin in a perfect studio environment. The library includes all the features you need to create beautiful and evocative accordion tracks and accompaniments easily.
Le Parisien offers sustained notes in all the registers that the original instrument has, but also full chords (major, minor) and bass notes. With the included sequencer you can create patterns that can be easily played with the left hand while the right hand plays melodies on top.
In this video overview, Matt Vanacoro walks you through Le Parisien and shows you the sound and workflow of the library.
Why you'll love Le Parisien
Three accordions with different character that will fit perfectly in your mix.
“Le Parisien is an immediate joy to work with. The interface and workflow are super intuitive. It puts an unmatched level of realism and flexibility at my fingertips.”

Le Parisien features a full mixer with which you can control the three mic positions separately.
With a load/purge switch for each channel, pan / width, volume, mute, solo, phase shift and output selector for mixing the different channels in your DAW.
In the effects page you can add any effect you want in any order.
Including EQ, compressors, modulation effects, distortion, saturation, tape machine, reverbs, amp simulators and more.
This script boosts the sonic capabilities of the library exponentially. Easy to use in a simple and intuitive design.
Accordionists are able to play accompaniments using the left hand while playing melodies with the right hand. You can also do that with Le Parisien.
We have included a chord recognizer that will trigger different chords directly recorded from the accordion.
From the settings page you can control basically any parameter you might ever need.
Includes round-robin, velocity curve shaping, volumes of the mechanical noises and sample start for controlling the attack and start offset of the notes.
See how Le Parisien sounds in different compositions. These pieces try to demonstrate the capabilities of the library. They use the different accordions, registers and articulations.
