SoundEngine.com has announced a new sample CD ROM full of hard-to-find vintage Soviet Synthesizer samples: "Soviet Synths".
More than 600MB of analog synthesizer samples are included - bass lines, pads, razor leads, classic waveforms, space FX, sounds of noises and machines, percussion, original real time phrases and more. Thanks to unique architecture and powerful resonant filters, Soviet-made synthesizers have inimitable color in their sound.
This CD disk contains raw .WAV files (no EQ, FX, compression etc.) in 24 bit/48 kHz format. Every patch folder contains 15 to 20 detailed mono samples per keymap. The note length averages 1 to 6 seconds (the longer length is for pads). Some sets contain repeated notes, but with various filter cutoff parameters. Long individual samples with realtime opened and closed filters, LFO, cross-modulation and others types of sounds are also available.
The disk contains the sounds of such famous Soviet synthesizers as the Aelita, Polivoks, Altair-231, Faemi-1M, Alisa-1387, Maestro, Ritm-2 and others. Thesounds of some drum machines, such as Lell PSR, Rockton, Elsita, are also included.
"Soviet Synths" is available now at SoundEngine.com and has an MSRP of $31.99.
