Synth Magic has released FZed, a sample library for Native Intruments Kontakt.

This Kontakt instrument uses sounds sampled into a Casio FZ-1 sampler and the sounds have lots of great vibe to them.

Just under 1GB of sounds and 200 presets ready for your musical productions or tweek away using the graphical user interface.

I have been a user of the FZ-1 for many years and love the way it adds ‘that something’ to anything sampled into it. The Sound sources are from various vintage synths and drum machines/drum synths which have been sampled into the Casio FZ-1 which has imparted it’s own sonic stamp on the samples.

The sounds have been passed through the lovely analogue filter of the FZ1 (Popular misconception that the FZ-1 filter is digital, it’s not, it is a digitaly controlled analogue filter and sounds great).

The output from the FZ-1 was then connected to a series of vintage valve pre-amps before sampling for use in Kontakt.

The FZed sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £8.95 GBP.
