Make your sampler sound exactly like this amazing vintage instrument! presents AUTHENTIC GIBSON G101 ORGAN SAMPLES from our own personal Gibson organ. This organ is the same model used by Ray Manzarek of The Doors.

PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT selling the organ, we are selling audio samples from it.

As we have not seen any synthesizer or sampler that truly replicates this distinctive organ, We decided to purchase one ourselves 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.

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 from the Hollywood Bowl.

In addition, music historians believe that the G101 may have been used for the 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
All tabs down
All tabs down with Mixture tab down
All tabs down with Brilliance tab down
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 via digital download. We are including wave (.wav) files that will play on most samplers. For owners of the Yamaha Motif ES and XS, email us for special pre-mapped files for your sampler. 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).

These samples are compatible with any hardware sampler that reads wave files, including the Yamaha Motif Classic, ES, and XS, Roland Fantom, Korg Triton, M1, and Oasys, and many Kurzweil, E-mu, and Akai samplers. They are also compatible with most of the leading software samplers, including Reason, Protools, MOTU, SampleCell, SoundFont, Sound Forge, Logic, Native Instruments, Acid, Halion, E-mu, Cakewalk, Sonar, and Cubase.

We can also custom format these files for other samplers. Please send us an e-mail indicating if you need a special format for your sampler.

Typical customer feedback for these samples:

Just wanted to say I really enjoy the Gibson G101 samples you made. I am a Doors fan and these samples are just great.

I loaded the "Lucy" WAVs into my sampler a few days ago. The sound is fantastic. Exactly right without any effects needed. The sound is clean, full and vintage. Thanks for the bargain!

I purchased the Vox Continental, Farfisa, and Gibson 101 samples. They needed very little editing, and the 101 which was my prime interest, is spot on accurate. I'm going to drop some Acid and play the Doors till I crash. If I ever have to do Paul Revere covers, I'm covered.

Great samples,well organized-Lucy in the Sky samples are fantastic-buy them now!

It was great to get an instant response to my order confirming receipt of money and shipment details - great customer service. The product arrived exactly as, and when, expected. The product was exactly as specified on your web page. The samples are excellent with seamless, no-click loops as specified. I was able to create my first "B3 Rock Hammond" sound in no time as all files and folders have been organised so well. I highly recommend dealing with VintageKeyboardSounds - good reliable customer service and excellent products.
