MusicRadar has announced the release of 976 free classic synth samples, a selection of classic synth sounds previously featured on Future Music magazine’s cover DVD.
These come from ARP’s Odyssey and Solina instruments, and Roland’s System 100. As a further bonus, you can also download single hits from some of history’s finest drum machines, including Roland’s TR-909 and 808 beatboxes.The samples are split into four folders. Three of these cover the featured synths, while the fourth contains all the drum machine content.
There are riffs, multisamples and single hits. All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they’re royalty-free, you’re welcome to use them in your music in any way you like – all we ask is that you don’t re-distribute them.The classic synth samples are supplied in a zip file, so you’ll need to extract this before you can see them.
