Short links for February 16th, 2011

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Visualized: 37 years of Roland synths in one awesome animated GIF

88 Roland synthesizers

Engadget reports on an animated gif which holds a collection of 88 Roland synths:

You know how much we love our vintage MIDI gear, and apparently our friend Ronny from Das Kraftfuttermischwerk is every bit as big a fan as we are. To that end, he's taken Music Radar's recent guide to all-things Roland and turned it into an awesome (and headache-inducing) animated GIF.

Apparently the collection lacks the TR and TB series instruments, otherwise everything the company has produced between 1973 and 2010 should be there.

Check the Das Kraftfuttermischwerk site for the animated gif and a large image with all synths included.

# Waveformless: Free Sample Friday: Washer & Dryer

More free samples from Tom Shear:

Today's free samples are various sounds made with a washer & dryer. I slammed lids, dropped coins on it, twisted the knobs, removed the lint trap, and a bunch of other stuff to provide a bunch of metallic percussion sounds or just good fodder for sample manipulation. 8 24-bit, stereo WAVs weighing in at 3.3 MB.

… and some more free samples from Dan303

# Microkorg and Monotron Basslines

Dan writes:

Here's some new samples for all of you music production lovers out there.
It's just a small pack this time but I hope you'll find them usefull.

This pack contains: 10 basslines made by running the Microkorg through the filter on the Korg Monotron. There's a little bit of background noise from the Monotron filter but a little bit of grit never hurt anyone.

# C64 LIVE DEMO – SID bassline (commodore cynthcart mssiah prophet64)

Live demo of one of my songs.
Bassline is played by an good old C64 equipped with Cynthcart.
Tune is called "we ain't finished yet" and has been featured on DEAD PIXELS long play.

In 2009 I began experimenting with SID chiptune (built-in sound generator chip of Commodore 64), and Cynthcart to create a blend of original 8bit sound from the 80's and Rock music.
