The Drum Broker has launched Midnight Melodies, a sample pack featuring original samples by Erik Jackson.
First we have a Wurlitzer electric piano struck with Mallets and Plucked with guitar pick. Processed through EMI Vintage Plate Reverb. The Strings were plucked to create melodies, broke down in to 3 chordal categories. A minor – C minor – G minor. I also went back to the Wurlitzer and created pads to add to the melodies. These are lush sounding pads to add to the melodies. The sounds are not cut as perfect loops, I left the tails on for chopping them into new samples. They can be looped though.
The pads and the melodies were recorded through a Neve 5316. I also went back to the Wurlitzer and plucked the 3 minor scales I used for the melodies. You can easily load these scales onto your pads and play. Any pad you hit will sound good.
Next I recorded bass-line scales from the Moog Sub Phatty and Minitaur. These were recorded through the SSL AWS 900. There are also some chopped breaks to add to your arsenal, dig deep, dig in and create something different.
This entire sample pack is created in 3 chords and scales – A minor – C minor – G minor. Load the proper sounds in your sampler and tear it up. This is a very creative pack, made for very creative individuals.
The sample pack is available for purchase for $24.99 USD.

HeadlessBuddha Samples has launched Lo-Fi Wurly, a virtual Wurlitzer piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Few months ago, Sanches got his hands into his friend’s 200A Wurlitzer to record some lines for his psychedelic rock project. That Wurly sounded so raw and full of character and soul to his ears that he decided to keep some samples for him. He used two sets of gear to record these samples: The first was pretty lo-fi-ish and gritty; the second was more of a warm and semi-clean recording.
Lo-Fi Wurly features
- 1 Kontakt instrument.
- 4 Velocity layers.
- A custom GUI with 4 effects (distortion, phaser, delay and convolution reverb).
- 550 MB of 44.1kHz/16 bit .wav format samples.
- All recorded on an old cassette tape recorder.
- A set of 17 custom impulse responses.
- Custom vibrato script controlled via Mod-wheel.
The sample library is available to purchase for $16 USD.
