LABS: Electronic Antique

A free virtual instrument sampling the early Ondioline synthesizer from Spitfire Audio.

By

4 December 2023

Producing inspiring sounds for composers, LABS plugins are created with sonic pioneers such as Hans Zimmer, and the world’s finest musicians and studios. LABS is a series of free software instruments that are presented by Spitfire Audio, and available in an easy-to-use, dedicated plug-in. The user interface is clutter-free and focused, and features simplified controls, sliders for expression and dynamics, and a knob that can be easily customised to the user’s personal workflow.

Discover a rare gem of music history with one of the world’s earliest synthesisers — the Ondioline. Designed and patented by French inventor Georges Jenny in the early 1940s, the LABS team captured its delightfully off-kilter sound, transforming the raw recordings into a range of playful presets. Fizzing with smile-inducing possibilities — the Ondioline is as wild as your imagination. Special thanks to Forgotten Futures for archive material and resources, and Ondioline restoration by Daniel Kitzig.
