Samples From Mars has introduced its new sample pack Vinyl Synths, a collection of royalty free one-shots and sampler instruments created from a selection 30 synthesizers that were cut to vinyl and sampled.
While we all know and love vinyl drum samples, any experienced crate digger knows how rare it is to find an isolated synth on a record. If you’re lucky enough to find a sub bass or a chord stab, it can be one of the most powerful and unique samples in your collection for precisely the same reasons we love vinyl drums. The dust and dirt imparted by the vinyl medium, as well as years of play and wear, give synth sounds a warmth and grit unachievable through other means.
But like all vinyl samples, this comes at the unfortunate cost of having to navigate the legal complexities of sampling somebody else’s music. And since we’ve become more experienced cutting and sampling our own records, our love for the format has grown even more… so much so that we had to find out what sampling 30 of our favorite synthesizers would sound like. So, we set out to create the world’s first sample pack comprised solely of original vinyl synth instruments
Vinyl Synths From Mars is on sale for $19 USD for a limited time (regular $39 USD). The pack is also included in various bundles, including “All the Samples From Mars” which is only $49 USD as part of a Black Friday promotion.
