Goldbaby Productions SuperAnalog808, high quality TR-808 sample pack + free Cheetah MD16 pack

Goldbaby Productions SuperAnalog808

Goldbaby Productions has released SuperAnalog808, a new sample pack featuring the sounds of the Roland TR-808 drum machine.

Punchy, warm, analog drums with Round Robin Layering. Using high-end outboard and a compulsive attention to detail… this 808 sample set is pure analog drum heaven.

Why have you created another TR-808 sample set? For a start the 808 is one of my favorite drum machines! Secondly I thought I could offer something a little different. This sample pack has been recorded at a higher sampler rate and has extensive Round Robin treatment to recreate the feel and movement of an analog drum machine. The Tape808 used tape to give it extra Mojo… this time I have used some new high end outboard. Tasty…

Is there anything else that is different? Yes there certainly is. This pack has tuned chromatic BD and Conga patches. So you can play them on your keyboard!

SuperAnalog808 features

  • 1168 x 24 bit / 96 kHz wav files.
  • Instrument patches for: Battery 3, Guru, EXS24, Kontakt 3.
  • Patches make use of extensive Round Robin mapping for a more analog feel.
  • Also includes tuned Chromatic BD and Conga patches (Kontakt, EXS24, Battery).
  • Outboard gear used: Great River Harrison 32 EQ, A-Design EM-PEQ, Kush Audio UBK Fatso, Mutronics Mutator, Crowther Audio – Prunes & Custard, Malekko – B:Assmaster, Boss – Dimension C.

SuperAnalog808 is available to purchase for $39 USD.

Goldbaby has also released the Cheetah MD16, a free sample pack featuring the sounds of a 16 bit British drum machine that came out in 1990.

Probably one of the ugliest drum machines I have ever seen! However it actually has some rather good drum sounds. Plenty of grit and punch with some rather good electro style sounds.

The Cheetah MD16 sample pack is available as a free download.

So here you go:

Coupon code: hugosbirthday2010

Goldbaby has also announced there will not be any ReFills for The Fat Juno-6 or Fatso Synth Vol 1, as the limitations of NNXT have made the job of looping complex stereo samples nigh impossible.

Furthermore, the MS20 project is postponed due to synth repair, but another project is underway:

It’s based on a famous analog drum machine. It will be Round Robin – 96 or 44.1 khz samples! Lots of analog processing. Sounds amazing so far! Stay tuned.

Review: Goldbaby Productions When Alien Drum Robots Attack!

Goldbaby When Alien Drum Robots Attack!

After releasing three synthesizer based titles consecutively, Goldbaby returns with another drum sample library: When Alien Drum Robots Attack!

When Alien Drum Robots Attack! features a large number of high quality samples. Kind of what you would expect from a Goldbaby library. But this time it’s not just about classic drum machines, or tape, the UBK Fatso, or vinyl. It’s all that, and more:

WHAT WAS USED TO MAKE IT? Everything in Goldbaby’s studio and more! Using a studio full of vintage and new drum machines, samplers, synths, rack effects, vinyl, tape, real drums and perc, field recordings… this product will give you a huge palette of super solid drums and sweet FX.

When Alien Drum Robots Attack! features

  • 1,516 x 24 bit samples.
  • 60 REX loops, 40 Battery 3 kits, 40 Guru bundles.
  • 65 EXS-24 patches (are in all the format downloads except the Refill).
  • ReFill includes 40 combinators, 40 ReDrum patches, and 8 x NN-XT patches.

Here’s a little demonstration of some of the sounds from the included kits. In the video I am using the FXpansion Guru version which comes with 40 bundles; perfect for showing off what these Alien Drum Robots are up to.

So what do I think?

Product: When Alien Drum Robots Attack! by Goldbaby Productions
Format: 24bit WAV, ReFill, EXS-24/Guru/Battery 3
Price: $39 USD (includes all formats)

The title of this library might sound a little silly but it does describe the content pretty well. Robotic vocoder type sounds, fx from outer space, fat ready-to-rumble drum hits… the attack is on!

When Alien Drum Robots Attack! includes lots of unique material. The processed drum samples (including 808/909 UBK Fatso) sound fat in that familiar Goldbaby way, just the way I like them. The sound quality is outstanding as well, as per usual.

After various drum machine libraries featuring samples processed with things like tape, vinyl, and the UBK Fatso, Goldbaby once again manages to create something fresh and exciting from sound sources that one might think were long exhausted. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Review: Goldbaby Productions The FatJuno-6

Goldbaby The FatJuno-6

The FatJuno-6 is the second sample library in which Goldbaby combines vintage synthesizer sounds with UBK Fatso processing.

The Juno-6 was the first in the Juno series of Synthesizers. Released in 1982 it has become a legend for its warm, full sound and lush analog chorus.

Initially this synth was going to be part of Fatso Synths Vol 2. However it became obvious early on that this synth, through the UBK Fatso, deserved its own product… I’m proud to present The FatJuno-6!

The FatJuno-6 includes 140 instrument patches in both Kontakt and EXS24 formats, each featuring the following categories: mono, poly, layered, raw, and single cycle oscillator. The Kontakt version (which I am using) also has some additional arp instruments and a few multis.

I’m not sure how different the instruments sound in each sampler, but I’m seeing many patches with identical names so I reckon those will be very similar to one another. Regardless, both formats make use of the same 1,630 24bit wav samples.

The FatJuno-6 Arp instrument Kontakt
The FatJuno-6 – Arp patch (with Poly Step script) in Kontakt

The Juno-6 is a six voice polyphonic synthesizer with digitally controlled analog oscillators — pulse, saw, and square + white noise and a square-wave subosc. With its analog filter and chorus this synth is capable of some incredibly fat poly-synth sounds (punchy bass sounds, warm lush pads).

This particular model does not have any patch memory or MIDI so sound patches needs to be (re)programmed every time you want to use them.

The FatJuno-6 samples folder shows that Goldbaby created close to 40 different patches for this sample library. These are all multi-sampled, except for the single cycle oscillator patches.

Before the sampled sounds were crafted into Kontakt/EXS24 instruments they were processed with the UBK Fatso. This is basically a tone-sweetening Empirical Labs EL7 Fatso Jr. (features harmonic generation+soft clipper, high frequency saturation, transformer & tape head emulation, and classic knee compression), modified by KuSh Audio to feature three new presets.

The nice thing about using a sampler like Kontakt is that you can do a lot more than just map these Juno-6 samples across the keyboard. Effects, modulation and scripts are used, and various parameters (filter, LFO, pitch, etc.) are assigned to the modwheel and velocity making the sounds dynamic and expressive.

The 140 instrument patches included in The FatJuno-6 offer a wide range of sounds, including drum sounds and sound effects. In Kontakt’s instrument edit mode you can explore the patches to see what is going on and modify the sounds to your liking.

So what do I think?

Product: The FatJuno-6 by Goldbaby Productions
Format: Kontakt/EXS24 (24bit wav)
Price: $49 USD

Goldbaby’s work continues to impress me. The FatJuno-6 includes a wide range of sounds in 140 well designed patches. Apparently some of the instruments with sustain loops were hard to get right because of the chorus effect, but I think they came out great as well.

You can really tell that a lot of work went into making this library — High quality multi-samples, creative & expressive instruments, instant usability, and most of all… a huge fat sound.

If you are looking for the sound of the Juno-6 this is the sample library to get.

Goldbaby The FatJuno-6

Goldbaby Productions has released The FatJuno-6, a multi-sampled library featuring the sounds of the Roland Juno-6 synthesizer.

The Juno-6 is a 6-voice polyphonic synth. It has digital oscillators with analog filters and a lovely lush analog chorus. Its sound has been described as warm and full. Originally I was going to incorporate this synth as part of FatsoSynths Vol 2. However it became obvious early on that this synth, through the UBK Fatso deserved its own product… thus the FatJuno-6 was born.

The majority of the sounds were captured with the chorus on… this proved to be problematic when creating sustain loops, but well worth the effort! Some of the sustain loops aren’t as perfect as I would like because of this… but the payoff is that I was able to capture the wide, warm, wonderful chorus sound!

The FatJuno-6 features

  • 140 x patches.
  • Patch folders: Juno6_Arp (Kontakt only), Juno6_GoldPresets_Mono, Juno6_GoldPresets_Poly, Juno6_Layered, Juno6_Raw, Juno6_SingleCycle_Osc.
  • 1630 x 24 bit wav samples.
  • Most of the instruments are multisampled. Only the single cycle ocsillator patches are not.
  • Every sound has passed through the UBK Fatso to give you that super sweet analog tone!

The FatJuno-6 is available to purchase for Kontakt and EXS24, priced at $49 USD.
