Impact Soundworks has announced the release of Super Audio Boy, a free Kontakt library featuring the sound of a legendary classic video game delivered in a modern and versatile interface.
Super Audio Boy is built on the full 4-layer synth engine of the Super Audio Cart instrument. It is perfect for authentic retro & chiptune music, as well as modern music production.
Super Audio Boy is a loving tribute to a certain grey handheld video game system that has become a legend in its own right. With well over 100 million units sold, the “GB” needs no further introduction, other than to mention that its sound chip has survived well-after the regular life span of the handheld and spawned multiple entire genres of music!
For this reason, when we wanted to make a free version of Super Audio Cart, we decided that the GB was the ideal system to use. Super Audio Boy uses the same incredible 4-layer synth, arp, FX, and mod engine from Super Audio Cart, but exclusively features the GB sound sources. Every waveform has been meticulously sampled from the actual hardware – no emulation here – and then carefully edited for use in Kontakt.
Super Audio Boy works within the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5 or above. The download requires “add to cart” and “checkout”, so you will have to create an account at Impact Soundworks.
