Bedroom Producers Blog is proud to host all of the freeware VST plugins which were developed by Mokafix Audio, with kind permission of the author.
Mokafix Audio has developed a number of high quality guitar pedal emulations and virtual electric piano instruments for Windows, both commercial and freeware.
Unfortunately, none of these were available for download as of recently, so I’ve decided to contact Efflam Le Bivic of Mokafix Audio (now a graphic designer at Native Instruments) personally and ask him if it would be OK to host the freeware ones on BPB. Thankfully, he said yes!
The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST), and include the Metal Clone overdrive, Nu-Tron envelope filter, NoAmp! amplifier & cabinet simulation, and Glue Reeds electric piano.
Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions DELUXE is the final release in the Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions sample pack series. It comes with 30 multi-sampled instruments which were recorded directly from three different versions of the Commodore 64 home computer.
The majority of the sounds in the sample pack are completely new, but I’ve also included re-edited versions of some of the sounds from the previous two releases.
Many users of the first two packs asked for a custom Kontakt interface with on-screen controls. So, I decided to ask Rhythmic Robot to join the project since these guys are the masters of turning vintage instruments into Kontakt sample libraries. Thankfully, they said yes and created a brilliant custom interface for Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions DELUXE!
In order to make the library accessible to virtually everyone, I’ve included SFZ and Zampler patches for all 30 instruments. All patches (including the Kontakt ones) are designed to alter the original sounds as little as possible, so that the original character of the SID chip is preserved as much as possible.
The sound library is a free download at KVR Audio.
Bedroom Producers Blog has announced the Monotron Novachord, a free Kontakt sample library by Dan Wilson aka Hideaway Studio.
I got myself a Korg Monotron Delay the other day and although it’s great fun to make weird and wacky noises with, it turns out its quite a nifty sample source too… In fact such is the nature of the Monotron’s oscillator and filter I was rather surprised to produce something rather close to the Novachord with some careful filter tweaking.
Three EQ peaks (high Q) were added in Kontakt to simulate the Novachord’s three resonators. Behold the Monotron Novachord…. in 4 megabytes.
The sample library is available to download at BPB.
Bedroom Producers Blog has released the BPB Mini Analogue Collection, a free sample library featuring the sounds of some analogue synths.
I’m very happy to release BPB Mini Analogue Collection, a free sample pack featuring the sounds from several analogue synthesizers I used to own.
While I was on a lookout for a working C64 (in order to start working on part 3 of Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions), I figured I could make a nice sample pack with some of the old samples I kept on my computer. I added some new sounds from Poly-61m and Poly-800 which I got recently, and BPB Mini Analogue Collection is the result.
BPB Mini Analogue Collection features
Includes sounds from the Korg Delta, Korg Poly-61m, Korg Poly-800, Solton Project-100, and Lell UDS.
254 WAV samples (16-bit quality).
9 multisampled instrument patches (SFZ + Kontakt 5).
Bedroom Producers Blog has released the Yamaha DD-10 Toy Drum Machine Sessions, a free sample pack featuring all 25 drum sounds of the original DD-10 drum machine.
For all you toy instrument aficionados out there, here’s a free sample pack featuring the sounds of my Yamaha DD-10 toy drum machine.
Definitely not the sort of drum machine you’d compare to legendary instruments like the Oberheim DMX and such, but there’s something about these lo-fi (some would say crappy) drum sounds that I simply can’t resist.
