Soundtrack Loops has announced the release of a new sample pack featuring loops, one shot samples and kits by Swedish coder and producer Linus Åkesson.
C64 8-Bit Adventure brings a collection of sounds generated by a bespoke musical instrument that Linus has dubbed the Commodordian, an ‘accordion’ comprising two C64 computers that bookend a real, functional bellows system constructed of an origami-like assembly of 5.25” paper floppy disc casings.
This instrument sets C64 8-Bit Adventure apart—the bellows is actually an electro-mechanical modulator that changes the sound as it’s being played. And so here, in a package containing 82 loops (distributed across 10 different theme kits), 168 delightful one shots, 9 Kontakt .nki files, and an Ableton Drum Rack, we have the sound of the Commodordian—an one-off, genius-grade, mad scientist-level instrument that captures the classic sounds of the Commodore 64 computer in all its 8-bit glory, and with added organic modulations that go far beyond typical circuit bending exercises, and into some truly esoteric and fun places.
The sample pack is available to purchase for $25 USD.
