FREE Old School Toy Keyboard Loops

Audiokit Pro has released a pack featuring a collection of loops recorded from vintage toy keyboards such as Yamaha PSS, PSR and Casio MT.

Over the holidays, I discovered an old project I started as a kid almost 20 years ago – over 600+ megabytes of vintage toy keyboard sample loops.

As some background, I saved up my money from working after school at White Castle (a dangerously delicious burger chain) to buy a Sound Blaster 16 card. It was thrilling. The Sound Blaster transformed my family’s Windows 95 machine into a futuristic recording studio. Thus, my dreams of working in the music tech industry were alive and well. (I’m still working on that dream).

I used this “state-of-the-art” technology to record all the toy keyboards I owned. Then, I spent weeks editing the loops using a shareware program called “Cool Edit”.

The free sample pack includes over 600MB of tempo-labelled loops and individual drum hits of 1990s Yamaha PSS, PSR, and Casio MT keyboards. The samples were recorded through a Sound Blaster 16-bit soundcard and processed and mangled using ’90s computer sound editors. All sounds are royalty free.
