Postby sin night; Sun May 10, 2015 11:10 am Free raw analog multisamples. [last update: 13 Dec. 2015]

[edit] short version: here you can find all the samples I shared (not just the raw multisamples of this thread).[/edit]

-----

Hi,

following a request on this forum, I decided to make some multisamples of my analog synths. I already made some samples in the past (and will do some in the future), but those are mostly complete patches, while this project is focused (mostly) on sampling the raw waveforms without processing. "Food for samplers".


The samples are in AIFF format, 44100Hz 24 bit mono and I sampled each note for 5 seconds.
Most samples are sampled raw, without any filtering/modulation.
There are no patches included (you will have to make your own, sorry). By the way, these samples are meant as sources to get creative with a sampler, they are not meant to replace a real synth (and they can't).


I'm still in the process of making and uploading the samples, I'll update this post when a new batch is ready.


-----


First set: this is an analog monosynth made in US. I sampled it both clean (directly into my soundcard), through a discrete preamp (made by another US brand) and through an overdriven filter pedal (made by the same brand of the monosynth). There are no clean samples for the third chain since I engaged the filter on the monosynth and then used the pedal dry/wet control to get a mix of overdriven and filtered sound (I wanted to make something really coloured). There are also samples of both the oscillators playing at the same time, spaced an octave apart (I synced them, so the result is solid). 419 MB. Link (Mediafire) Link (Google Drive)
edit: there are two C#4 samples in the pack which are wrong and should be deleted (the synth doesn't go past C4, so those two samples sound wrong - I'm not going to modify the archive just for two samples which can be deleted after the download).


Second set: this is a monosynth made by a German company. It’s a really nice synth and these samples are just a subset of the waves its oscillators can generate when combined. The synth is way more powerful than what shown here.
The pack contains triangle, saw and pulse (pwm 127) waves, along with a “cluster” (that’s not the name of the wave, but the manual says it’s made through a cluster of simple waves) wave, sampled with a few different settings. All these recordings are made by going directly into the soundcard.
The pack features also two bonus sets, which I sampled through an overdriven phaser pedal, with any modulation disabled (so it works like a static comb filter). The first set features the pwm 127 wave, while the second is based on a cluster wave and is sampled in stereo (I used the aux out of the pedal).
I’m not sure about the consistency of the result of sampling the cluster waveform (since it uses a few detuned voices) and of the bonus sets (because of the effect) but pretty I’m confident they are more than usable.
689 MB. Link (Mediafire) Link (Google Drive)


Third set: this is a recently discontinued VCO which was sold as a guitar pedal. I used a midi to cv converter to control its pitch (I didn't use the hardsync) and I recorded the osc output (which is very hot!) through another analog synth (because I needed a vca). I tried to tune it as best as I could, but it's still not perfect (you'll hear some instabilities), I had to record each note multiple times in order to choose the best sample (sometimes there were glitches). The lower octaves are more stable (tuning an tone wise) than the higher ones. There are four waves: triangle, saw, square and pulse.
194 MB. Link (Google Drive)

Third set - bonus pack: while making the third set, I made a few samples with the same setup and an analog filter (the same used for the first set). I didn't manage to prepare the pack yesterday, so I'm uploading them now. In this pack there are 3 filtered set (with a reduced octave extension, because the samples of higher ones weren't good enough) and an overdriven, not filtered, set (with the same octave extension of the original vanilla set). The filtered sets are classic, almost vanilla sounds; while I think the overdriven set could be a good source to make bass patches.
For those who care, the adsr used for the three filter sets is digital (I used the envelope of an analog monosynth which has digital envelopes - I don't hear anything bad because of that, but I want to make it clear - by the way, I hope to build an analog envelope in the next weeks, I'm missing just a few components in order to build one).
138MB. Link (Google Drive)


Fourth set: this is an US made monosynth. The brand is the same of the first and third set, so tone-wise you can expect some kind of consistency.
This time, I recorded at 96KHz/24bit. I sampled the saw and square waveform, but I didn't play with the PW yet (maybe for another batch) or any kind of modulation.
The tuning is as good as I could manage to get this afternoon, so expect a few cents off (by the way, the saw samples are tuned more precisely than the square).

Thanks for sharing. It's gonna take 2 hours to download. Why no details about which synth and pre-amp? If you created the sounds that you sampled there are no copyright issues (afaik).

I want to keep a bit of mystery :)

It's all recent gear, still manufactured. I'm not sure about sharing the names in public (by the way I can PM the details on request).

I could sample my rocket and add those here too. Maybe this could get sticky and more people could join the "share your hardware" -party :hyper:

It doesn't have analog oscillators (like the topic title says :wink: ).

It has analog filter ;D

I'm sure raw, in this context, means: unfiltered, unenveloped, uncrossmodulated, etc...
Someone will arrive here soon, offering his/her JV-1080 recordings; because it has analog outputs!! :o :D


Btw. I'm not saying I don't like the sound of the Rocket, I do! :wink:

The Mediafire link don't work? Have you got any suggestion for an alternative place with enough space and little limitations? I would like to avoid uploading the samples more than once because my internet connection is not that fast, so if I do that I'd like to be sure I won't need to upload them a third time.

It worked perfect and (at least at my place) with full speed. No worries.
