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.
Bedroom Producers Blog has released the Yamaha SHS-10 Toy Keytar Sessions, a free sample pack.
Taking a short break from Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions, I’ve decided to release this set of free samples from a Yamaha SHS-10 toy keytar I used to own.
It’s a cool looking little keytar with some nice and cheesy FM sounds, but I had to sell it since there’s hardly any space left in my room for such little gadgets. Of course, I listed it it in the ads only after sampling all of its preset sounds.
Yamaha SHS-10 Toy Keytar Sessions features
8 instrument presets, as well as the SHS-10 drum kit.
All the samples (69 samples in total) are 16-bit WAV files, with Kontakt 5 and Shortcircuit 1 patches included.
Patches have a key range from F1 to C3 (like the real SHS-10). Vibrato is mapped to the mod wheel.
Download size is 19.8MB (26.4MB on disk).
The sample pack is a free download (100% royalty free).
Bedroom Producers Blog has released Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions Part 2, a collection of free samples.
Two different Commodore 64s were used for creating the sounds in this sample pack, although both have SID 8580 installed. The original plan was to record some bits from a SID 6581 this time, but my old C64 died literally 5 minutes after I plugged it in. To make that major bummer even major-er, there were no original C64s (aka C64 beige) to be found in the local ads during this three week period.
However, I did manage to get ahold of a C64G, which was sampled for one of the instruments in this sample pack (the BASIC Bass patch, pictured below). C64G also has a SID 8580 installed, but they do say that every SID chip is different, so there’s still a bit of variety in the hardware sense I guess. All other sounds were captured from a C64C which was also used in the previous pack. Hopefully, a C64 beige will pop up in the ads before I start working on part 3.
Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions Part 2 features
14 multisampled instruments and one multi patch.
Total of 142 samples in 16-bit WAV format (download size is 79.4 MB).
Bedroom Producers Blog has released Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions Part 1 , a free sample pack.
This free sample pack is the first part of a project I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. In the next couple of weeks, I’ll be publishing three more Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions packs, capturing the sounds of my two C64s powered by the MSSIAH cartridge and its brilliant Mono Synthesizer application.
Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions Part 1 features
Includes 3 sounds: Legend Of SID, Dungeon Of SID, and Rainy Metropolis.
Created on a Commodore 64 with SID 8580 installed.
21.8 MB content, 16-bit WAV files.
Includes Shortcircuit 1 and Kontakt 5 patches.
Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions Part 1 is a free download at BPB.

AfroDJMac has released Gameboy Glitches and Synth, a free Ableton Live Rack.
8 bit squelches and bleeps lovers come see this weeks installment of my Free Weekly Ableton Live Racks series!!
**Thanks to BedroomProducersBlog who assembled these fine samples using an old black Nintendo Gameboy running the LSDJ software, and who were kind enough to allow me to share with you my creations using those samples. [Visit BPB, it's a great resource for information, releases, samples, etc.]**
This week, since I’m feeling generous after some cyber-love from Ableton and Create Digital Music, you get two free Ableton Instrument racks. The first is a drum rack loaded with all of these fine Gameboy glitchy noises, drops, risers, arps, and UFO sounds. Secondly is a playable synth based on one of those wonderfully gritty samples. Both are racked up in an exciting little effect rack that helps you finesse or destroy these sounds to suit your own personal productions!
