Beach Organ

RM-20 is a collection of sampled sounds crafted to replicate the unique character of the Yamaha PS-20, an electric organ debuted in 1981. This pack captures the PS-20’s lo-fi yet mesmerizing tone, a sound heavily utilized by the band Beach House to create their signature dreampop atmosphere. The RM-20 sound pack is a homage to this iconic instrument, bringing the enchanting Beach House style into your own productions with its distinct lo-fi tones.

This comprehensive sound pack employs high-quality multi-samples of all ten sounds from the Yamaha PS-20, preserving the original instrument’s charm while enhancing it with functionalities the original lacked, such as MIDI programming capabilities. When processed with effects like chorus, delay, and reverb, these samples are transformed into inspiring sounds, ready to spark new creative ideas and songs.

This pack is perfect as an inspiration machine, for adding dreamy lo-fi tones to your songs, or for anyone wanting to bring some Beach House synth sounds into their productions. These sounds come to life when run through effects such as chorus, delay and reverb, and also work well when layered with other sounds.
