Bedroom Producers Blog has announced the release of Toy Keyboard Bass Station, a free sample pack containing a set of multi-sampled bass instrument patches in WAV format and a set of instrument mappings for NI Kontakt 5.
All of the included sounds were created with the Yamaha PSS-390 toy keyboard and recorded through a compact tube preamp.
Yamaha PSS-390 is an unusual toy keyboard which features a rather cool FM synthesis engine with some unlocked parameters, making it possible to completely modify the factory sounds. There are 99 factory patches in total and every patch can be edited using the rudimentary and at the same time totally awesome synthesis engine.
I was planning to sample this one for a long time and a couple of days ago I finally got some inspiration to do it. Since programming such a simple FM synthesizer is tons of fun (and incredibly easy), I’ve spent quite some time trying to get the best possible bass sounds out it. I ended up with 16 custom presets and I’ve recorded them through a compact 12AX7 tube preamp, just to round them up a bit and add a bit saturation on top. I’ve also recorded the drum sounds, in case you want to have some toy keyboard DnB fun.
The pack contains 17 instrument patches and 135 audio samples in 24-bit WAV format. The instrument patches were created with NI Kontakt 5, although you can still use the individual WAV files if you don’t own Kontakt.
The pack is a free download at Bedroom Producers Blog.

Bedroom Producers Blog has announced the release of ESQ-1 Re-Boot, a free sample pack featuring samples from the Ensoniq ESQ-1.
Neil Paddock of How To Program Drums has released ESQ-1 Re-Boot, a free collection of Ensoniq ESQ-1 hybrid synthesizer samples. I was lucky enough to join Neil for this great project and so I’ve created an additional set of NKI Patches (for use with Kontakt 5) which you can download for free on BPB.
ESQ-1 Re-Boot features 40 original instrument patches from the legendary Ensoniq ESQ-1 hardware synthesizer, known as one the finest hybrid synthesizers (with analog filters and digital oscillators). The library contains 497 samples in total, sampled across six octaves for each of the included instrument patches.
ESQ-1 Re-Boot is a free download for Kontakt 5, SFZ, Reason & Ableton Live.

Bedroom Producers Blog has introduced Vintage Chord Organ, a free Kontakt sample library from Aerocity featuring an old Magnus Chord Organ instrument from the 1960’s.
A chord organ is a compact keyboard instrument which looks like a small reed organ, although it sounds quite similar to an accordion. I used to own a cheap Bontempi version of a chord organ a long while ago and I’ve always regretted selling it without sampling it first. That’s one of the reasons why I was so happy when I stumbled onto this free Kontakt instrument by Aerocity.
Vintage Chord Organ is a free sample library based on a Magnus Chord Organ, featuring 37 fully playable keys (with infinite hold time) and fixed tuning of the original instrument.
The library is available for download from Bedroom Producers Blog.
