Samples From Mars has announced the release of DATABENDERS_TOOLKIT, a sample pack featuring over 300 samples, two Ableton packs and MIDI clips full of strange and complex sounds created by corrupting data.
For this release, LA Based sound designer Skylar Trainor spent months bending 3d models, A.I. brains, graphics engines, VST plugins and his audio driver. The results of these long sessions were then sculpted and layered in Pro-Tools, and sent to Samples From Mars headquarters for extensive analog saturation. We made sure the waveforms became denser and packed with varieties of harmonic distortion.
Cold and glitchy soundscapes, dark ambience, powerful and dirty drums and subs, reverses, and mutli-sampled modulations. These are complex FX that can be used for weird, ambient, avant garde Aphex Twin / Arca style tracks. Or surrounded by analog elements, and more straight forward 4X4 house tracks (Check the demos).
The sample pack is available for purchase for $22 USD.

Samples From Mars has launched Arp Omni Bass Synth, a sample pack pack for Ableton Live and Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Arp Omni synthesizer is a beast of an analog VCO synthesizer, yet not many people know it. The bass on this synth is a cutting, deep and powerful tone capable of everything from 70s funky disco to 90s Techno.
It has sort of a Yamaha DX-100 sound but on steroids. And, when sampled and played polyphonically, it can create gorgeous, warm chords and friendly leads.
Arp Omni Bass Synth features
- Ableton Live pack:
- 9 Multi-Sampled Arp Omni Instruments with fully mapped Macros.
- Racks include filters, sidechain compression for extra grit, reverb & more.
- Compatible with Ableton Live 8 and Live 9.
- 7 folders of 24bit WAV multi samples labeled by note name.
- Kontakt pack:
- 7 multi-sampled Kontakt 5 Instruments.
- 24 bit Wav samples labeled by note name.
The pack is available for purchase for $12 USD.

Samples From Mars has announced the release of Drumtrax Samples, a funky and crunchy collection of 80’s 8-bit drums recorded 100% analog to tape.
Drumtrax is a collection of high end, tape saturated 24bit drum sounds inspired by the funky 8 bit drum machines of the 1980s.
The sounds are reminiscent of Prince / Human League / mid 80s boogie, but with more bite. Though reminiscent of a Linn, the clap and hi-hats are dirtier (we prefer them) and the rimshot is closer to a TR-707.
Classic cabasa, meaty snare, proto-house cowbell, a kick created with the help of an SP-1200 sampler and more.
Drumtrax Samples features
- 384 sounds (24bit WAV) inspired the funk of classic 80s machines.
- 1 pack of processed, tape saturated drums recorded through classic analog gear.
- 1 pack of clean, unprocessed sounds recorded digitally through pristine conversion with loads of headroom.
- Each sound contains 16 pitches all done with hardware.
- Tape sounds are loud & punchy without normalization.
- Digital sounds are clean and have massive headroom for additional processing.
The sample pack is available for purchase for $20 USD.
