Introducing Abacus by Richard Harvey: an abundance of vintage children’s instruments from the composer’s personal collection.  Abacus offers a diverse array of lovingly sampled vintage children’s instruments from the early 19th century to the 1980s.

With almost one hundred instruments selected from Richard’s personal collection, Abacus provides composers with an authentically nostalgic toolkit, perfect for fantasy, adventure, mystery, horror, storytelling, gothic, animation, historic, educational, or family-centric television advertising.

While many of the instruments of Abacus were designed for children, they were performed and sampled by experts. All of the instruments are represented as faithfully as possible with actual pitch ranges plus instrument-specific mapping and articulations. They were captured through five mixable mic positions, giving you a high degree of control over the sound.
