Seaweed Factory has launched FM_SK, a free sample pack featuring sounds from the Yamaha TX81z.
The sounds in the video above are from Seaweed Factory’s latest sample pack, FM_SK.
The focus is on odd, grainy FM percussive sounds. All samples were produced using a Yamaha TX81z sound module. Each percussive sample was then processed using a modified Casio SK-1 Sampling Keyboard to give the pure FM tones more grit. Over 150 samples at a 24bit/48K sample rate are included in this sample pack. No normalization was used, nor was any tuning performed.
I’m offering it free of charge again for commercial and non-commercial use, but please don’t redistribute the pack.

Seaweed Factory has launched the Casio SK-1 Rhythm and Tone Sample Pack, a free collection of samples.
Here is a sample pack of the rhythms and tones of an unmodified Casio SK-1 sampling keyboard. Though the sampling feature of this keyboard is wonderful, the lo-fi drums and tones are also pretty neat.
All samples were produced using a unmodified Casio SK-1 Sampling Keyboard. Normalization was used across multi-samples, but dynamics between notes are preserved. Some samples are labeled to indicate note or drum pattern. All eleven drum patterns are sampled at the default rhythm. The fill pattern for each rhythm is also available. Each of the eight built-in voices has been multi-sampled at octave intervals of the note C. Individual drum hits have been extracted from patterns.
The sample pack is a free download, commercial and non-commercial use allowed.

Seaweed Factory has introduced the Casio PT-10 Sample Pack, a free collection of samples from the 32-mini keys Casiotone PT-10.
After a long gap, it’s time for another sample pack. This packs contains sounds from a Casio PT-10 mini-keyboard. Each of the 4 voices have been multi-sampled. I’m fond of the fantasy setting in particular.
Loops of the 10 different rhythms have also been provided at 2 different speeds. Enjoy this super lo-fi blip blast! I’m offering it free of charge again for commercial and non-commercial use, but please don’t redistribute the pack.
