Seaweed Factory has launched FM_SK, a free sample pack featuring sounds from the Yamaha TX81z.
The sounds in the video above are from Seaweed Factory’s latest sample pack, FM_SK.
The focus is on odd, grainy FM percussive sounds. All samples were produced using a Yamaha TX81z sound module. Each percussive sample was then processed using a modified Casio SK-1 Sampling Keyboard to give the pure FM tones more grit. Over 150 samples at a 24bit/48K sample rate are included in this sample pack. No normalization was used, nor was any tuning performed.
I’m offering it free of charge again for commercial and non-commercial use, but please don’t redistribute the pack.
