little-scale Atari POKEY Noise Sample Pack
Sebastian Tomczak has posted an Atari POKEY Noise Sample Pack.
I have created a set of samples that have been recorded directly from an Atari POKEY chip. I have created all of the sounds myself on the hardware (as in, these are not sounds or samples recorded from games or demo programs). The output from the sound chip has been recorded directly.
The sample pack includes 316 samples, covering a variety of frequencies and noise characteristics. Pure tones are not included.
There are two versions available for download:
- Uncompressed audio: 16 bit, 44.1KHz mono .wav files.
- Compressed audio: 96kbps, mono .mp3 files.
Sebastian has normalised and trimmed the audio only (no compression or eq) and fade-outs have been added to each file.
Check little-scale for more details and links to download the sample pack.
