Martin78 has announced the release of Yamaha TG500 / SY85 Drum and FX Samples, a free collection of samples in 16 Bit WAV format.
Yamaha TG500 is a rompler from 1992. Rack version of Yamaha SY85 workstation with bigger polyphony but no internal RAM memory (as default). Current Yamaha Motifs predecessor. Many filters, good effects.
And now the best part :) Free 48khz 16bit sample pack of ALL drum and fx waveforms.
Waveforms – it means, no internal effects were used, no layers. Pure samples looped as originals. Every waveform recorded few times in different pitch.
Recorded thru Akai s5000 sampler, then DC adjusted, normalized, denoised, trimed and looped on Windows.
The samples are available for instant download on Martin78’s site. You’re free to use them in personal or commercial releases.
