SampleScience has announced the release of AdLibXRom, a sample based instrument featuring the sound of the AdLib sound card.

AdLibXRom is a plugin instrument featuring the sound of the AdLib Music Synthesizer Card. Famous in the early nineties for being widely used in PC Windows based computers, the AdLib soundcard had a synthesis chip build by Yamaha. This chip was the YM3812, a FM and additive synthesizer which had up to 9 channels of digitally produced sound.

We sampled 40 programmed sounds from the YM3812 and released these royalty-free sounds in audio plugin format (VST & AU for Windows and Mac OSX, both 32 bit and 64 bit) as well as sfz, Kontakt 4, Reason NN-XT, wav & sf2 formats.

AdLibXRom is available for purchase for $12.99 USD.
