Samples From Mars has announced the release of a new sample pack that features analog synth movements from the Oberheim and Polysix captured through 1/4″ Otari tape and Echoplex tape echo feedback loops.
Tape Fragments contains 32 instruments and samples, including soundtrack-esque tape pads, screaming leads, drifting pads, flutes, spaced out fx, plucky bass, and dusty keys.
Tape Fragments is one of our more experimental, yet super useable, releases to date. It was created by sending analog synth movements through feedback loops using various tape machines, echoes and an API console. The results were then mapped to keyboard instruments and can be played melodically to achieve rich, dreamy, lo-fi tape synth textures and soundtrack-esc pads, leads, and FX.
The pack is available for purchase for $9 USD at the Samples From Mars website.
