midierror has released FM Synths, a free sample pack featuring sounds from three classic FM synthesizers.

Created on 3 classic FM synths, midierror resurrects the sounds of the 1980s before contorting their descent into the sound systems of 2015. This pack contains all you need to beef-up your sound; with hard, evil synth tones, grizzly bass hits and twisted sound fx.

Containing in excess of 200 Oneshot sounds, FM Synths has over 150 loops; featuring FM lead elements, backing rhythmns and modulated FX at tempos to suit the modern electronic artist. Also included are over 100 FM Drum Hits and 13 Multi-Sampled instruments recorded over 5 octaves, enabling you to play the synth patches as they were originally.

Each of the sounds have been recorded direct from the hardware, with no processing or after effects – making them mean, clean and raw. Modulated loops have been recorded with live parameter changes for a living, organic quality.
