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.
Yamaha DD-10 Toy Drum Machine Sessions features
- 25 WAV files (24-bit)
- Kontakt 5, Shortcircuit 1, Poise patches
- 2.67MB download size (3.35MB on disk)
The sound library is a free download at BPB.

Audio Geek Zine has released AGZFX03: Hell Piano, a Kontakt sample library featuring the sounds of a circuit-bent electronic toy piano.
This sample library contains the sounds of a circuitbent FisherPrice 3810 electronic toy piano at 96kHz. Modifications to the toy resulted in hellish distorted drones and screams.
The edited WAV files (included) were used to create KONTAKT instruments that span several octaves more than the original keyboard. There is a KONTAKT instrument for each key and each combination of modification + 2 patches using KONTAKT effects.
Hell Piano is available to purchase for $10 USD.

Les Productions Zvon has announced the release of Baby Piano, a virtual toy piano instrument for Windows.
Jason Washburn contacted me and sent me a beta version of this VSTi he made with the Maize Sampler and he offered me to distribute it. After some tweaks, we are happy to release the version 1.
He used the natural samples of my Baby Piano free sample set. This means that the Baby Piano VST corresponds to the “Real white keys” program of the free set, the real acoustic Baby Piano mapped from G3 to F5 only on white keys. The pitch heard does not match the key pressed except for G3 and it has velocity layers.
Baby Piano for Windows (VST) is available to download at no cost.
