Samples From Mars has announced the release of Free SP From Mars, a free collection of 65 samples taken from the SP 1200 From Mars pack, featuring gritty drums and dusty synths from the classic 90’s sampler.
The SP-1200 is a warm and gritty 12bit sampler developed in 1987, best known for its huge contributions to golden age hip hop, classic house and french house.
At 26.04 kHz sample rate (roughly half of a CD – if you remember those?), the “vinyl like” sound people describe is a combination of digital aliasing and distortion passed through a warm analog filter (The SSM2044 found in many synths, like the Polysix).
Free SP From Mars features
- 65 SP-1200 Drum WAVs and 136 Synth WAVs.
- (1) Ableton 9.5 Session containing 1 drum rack and 4 synth racks.
- (5) Kontakt 4 & Logic Synth Instruments, 1 Kontakt & Logic Drum Instrument.
- 220 MB Unzipped.
- Requirements: Ableton Live 9.5 (Not intro), Kontakt 4+ (not Player), or Logic 9+.
