Sample Library Review: "Performachord" by Bad Cat Samples

Meena Shamaly takes an in-depth look at the “Performachord” sample library by Bad Cat Samples who have brought us other incredible libraries like the Music Box and Indi Glock. From the Bad Cat Samples website:

“The Performachord” is a reed based instrument thats somewhat of a cross between an accordion, and an organ. It is also commonly known as a “Chord Organ”, among a couple other names. The left hand is played by “push down” buttons offering different voiceing’s including: Roots, Major, Minor, & Seventh. Although this may seem basic to some, with a little creativity, and a decent grasp of theory, one can actually create numerous chord voicings using a combination of these buttons alone.

“Performachord” is affordable and unique in equal measure, and in usual Bad Cat fashion, delivers excellent sound quality and natural playability. Can’t ask for more.
