Casio Rapman

Here is a complete sample set of the Casio Rapman keyboard. Hits come from drum pads and scratch wheel on the device. Each patch was multi-sampled, with a C note for three octaves. Patch 41 is percussive and has 4 hits instead. Each Rap is a drum loop, sometimes with bass or keys added.

Casio SK-1 Rhythm & Tone

All samples were produced using a unmodified Casio SK-1 Sampling Keyboard. Normalization was used across multi-samples, but dynamics between notes are preserved. Some samples are labeled to indicate note or drum pattern. All eleven drum patterns are sampled at the default rhythm. The fill pattern for each rhythm is also available. Each of the eight built-in voices has been multi-sampled at octave intervals of the note C. Individual drum hits have been extracted from patterns.

Learning Toy

All samples were produced with a circuit bent off-brand/unmarked learning toy. This toy has multiple modes for learning letters and numbers. A pitch control has been fitted, which can cause the toy to crash when clocked fast enough. A switch has also been added to activate a strange pitch glitch mode. Both controls are used throughout the sample set to produce weird sounds. Later samples has been extracted form a glitch stream caused by clocking the toy at its extremes. Samples are 48K/24 bit, with -0.3db normalization applied.

Crown Elephant Organ

All samples were produced using a modified toy dubbed the Elephant Organ. Each key makes a distinct animal noise using square waves. A control was added to modify the pitch of the toy. Each of the 7 keys has been recorded at 7 different pitches, from low to high. When the pitch reaches a certain threshold, the synthesis breaks down and becomes glitchy. This pack includes 20 glitch samples.

FM_SK

The focus is on odd, grainy FM percussive sounds. All samples were produced using a Yamaha TX81z sound module. Each percussive sample was then processed using a modified Casio SK-1 Sampling Keyboard to give the pure FM tones more grit. Over 150 samples are included in this sample pack. No normalization was used, nor was any tuning performed.

Fujitone 3A

A collection of sounds from a Fujitone 3A keyboard. This keyboard is very lo-fi squarewave toy with lots of grainy charm. The drums in particular are quite fun. Included in this pack are multisamples of all 12 tones dry, with sustain and with vibrato. Samples of individual drum hits and all 8 drum patterns are also included. Normalization was used between instruments, but not individual multisamples.

GTR Model 3751 Chord Organ

Chord organs were very common in the 70s as a cheap home instrument. Each key activates a reed, which produces a note that sounds much like an accordion or melodica. Some keys activate entire chords for ease of play. The whole system uses a fan to pressurize the air that then flows through the reeds. It is a very simple system, hence it's popularity (and cheesiness). Included are 3-octaves worth of notes and sounds of the fan motor running. The volume changes drastically as the player moves up the octaves. Some resonances also occur within the air chamber for certain notes.

Bent Pox Toy

This sample pack features sounds from an early circuit-bent creation called Pox. It is a toy guitar that has been modified with contact points and a bending touch plate. For added noise, the batteries have been aged to perfection before sampling. It is decidedly unmusical, but can produce unique noise. Each of the Piano and Horn sounds has been multisampled over 13 notes. Static noises from rubbing wires on the touchplate have also been included.

Roland JX3P - Strings & Pads

This pack focuses on string and pad patches from the Roland JX3P Synthesizer. It is well known for these types of sounds. The four patches included have been multisampled directly from the synthesizer. The JX3P can produce 61 notes, starting at C3 (midi note 36) on up through C8 (midi note 96). Each note had been individually sampled for an extended period of time to capture the behaviour of the built-in chorus.

Roland JX3P - Effects

This pack focuses on effects patches from the Roland JX3P Synthesizer. The four patches included have been multisampled directly from the synthesizer. The JX3P can produce 61 notes, starting at C3 (midi note 36) on up through C8 (midi note 96). Each note had been individually sampled for an extended period of time to capture the behaviour of the built-in chorus.
