SAMPLING COLLECTION 500
Being the pioneer among sampling CDs, this one dates back to 1988 and is probably one of our most inexpensive and one of the best sellers of Sampling CDs.
Don`t expect today’s standards in terms of multisamples, different velocity levels and so forth, but look forward to a wealth of great sounds from the 80’s. M1, K1, ESQ1, K5, DX7-II, Moog, PPG2.2, D50, K1000, Simmons SDS5, Linn 9000, Alesis HR16, are all included as are 4 oscillator sweeps from Korg’s Monopoly and vintage Synclavier FX.
“A must for every synth addict – the drum sounds alone are worth the price” – Fachblatt
SAMPLING COLLECTION 600
Along with selected sounds from Korg’s T1, Kawai K4 and Ensoniq’s VFX SD, this library features ‘dry as a bone’ Synth basses and typical PPG sounds from the microwave. Some natural sounds are included from the EMU Proteus XR.
In the vintage section there are sounds from the legendary Prophet VS and Oberheim Xpander, as well as the classic ROLAND CR78 (In the air tonight) with loops and single samples. 649 Samples in total.
SAMPLING COLLECTION 700
In the synth section you will find the blockbusters of 1990: The Yamaha SY77 and the Korg Wavestation. The Prophet 5 and Elka Synthex make up the vintage section. Classic sounds from the TR606 and 909 and hundreds of samples from the Akai MPC60 are featured among the drum samples.
SAMPLING COLLECTION 800
Strings and horns from the respected Kurzweil modules and synth sounds from Casio’s VZ1, korg’s M1, Ensoniq’s VFX, vintage Matrix and MKS70 in addition to more than 250 drum samples from Rolands R8. Released in ’89 this CD features many classic sample sounds like Big Bank, Energy blast and kitchen slam.
SAMPLING COLLECTION 900
This CD features more than 78 minutes of Sounds & stacks, drums and Sound FX treated with the First Base processor giving extra stereo performance. The main part of this library concentrates on samples from the Korg 01/W, Roland’s JD800 and Yamaha’s SY99.
Drums and percussion sounds are provided by the Emu Procussion module including hundreds of contemporary sounds and monsterous drumstacks. In the bonus tracks, we added some samples from the well known International Gold Card series with sounds from the Korg T2, VFX, Kawai K4 and SY77.
“Excellent!” was the final word about the 686 samples on this CD in the “Soundcheck Magazine” review.
SAMPLING COLLECTION 1000
The 1000 CD is full of interesting, quality recorded synth sounds. K2000, KS32; JD800; SY99, JV30, SY85/35 and an organ special with XB2 and VK1000 drawbar sounds. In the drums and percussion section, there is a complete collection of RY 30 samples. The absolute highlights are the cosmo fx and the horror thrills, with strange collages and spaced out atmospheres from the Synclavier and Fairlight.
“The Masterbits 1000 is a well structured and highly recommended collection of synthesizer sounds with a strong tendency towards softer sounds. Ideal for musicians in search of a good selection of synthetic samples.” – KEYS
