Wafeformless has released FM Artifact, a free sample pack containing a selection of sounds which were synthesized with the FM8 synthesizer by Native Instruments.
Today’s free sampled instrument is a metallic bass/lead from Native Instruments’ FM8.
FM Artifact is available for free download via Waveformless (1.74 MB download size, contains 6 audio samples in 24-bit WAV format).
The samples were crafted using the FM8 synthesizer, which is one of the best virtual FM synths around. You can grab it for $199 at Native Instruments. For a freeware alternative (to an extent), grab the FMMF synth by de la Mancha.
The sad news is that will be the last free sample pack released by Waveformless in a while (and perhaps forever). Tom Shear has announced that he is closing Waveformless, since he doesn’t have enough time for running the website.
It was one of the best music production related blogs around, with reviews you could trust and a weekly dose of free samples in the Free Sample Friday series. I’m sad to see it go!
