Included are 16 of my sounds, some pad sounds, some polysynth-ish sounds, a couple of fx and a nice monophonic unison bass sound. I took my favourite patches and then used Samplerobot to get the multisamples off the synth and into Kontakt, and then i started tweaking. The DW8000 has some annoying low hum on some of it's patches, notable more when you press the high keys, so i used a high pass filter in Kontakt that kicks into action on the higher keys. Some of the patches have multiple velocities, however some, to save space, have had Kontakt's own filter added and velocity mapped to it. I also added some delay or reverb where appropriate. I think they sound better in Kontakt than on the synth now!
Here's a demo of the sounds in action, note these are recorded from Kontakt with just internal effects, and just a little limiter.
So what sounds do we have? Well, here's a list:
Choir of the damned: Nasty, Melotronish, Alien Choir Sound...Disturbing!
Dramatic Strings: It's all in the name!
Funk Long/Short: Two versions of a funky clav/polysynth hybrid sound, sounds VERY DW8000.
Intense: Some more dramatic Strings
Little Pitch Env: Timpani/Tom+Synth sound, very dramatic
Little Pitch Env2: Cute Digisynth Sound
Long Env: Seriously long filter envelope with lots of resonance, sliding down.
Lovely Strings: My fave string sound from the DW
Octave Strings: Similar, just in octaves
Phaseord: Phased pad
Pitch Env Vox: Very Digital and maybe annoying digivox sound
Rezo: Big Ass Unison Bass with multiple velocities sampled
Strat: Guitarish type pad
Whee: Reminds me of a wibbly effect in an old synth funk record.
Whovian: Big filter sweep up, has an early Dr Who flavour.
They're all yours to use for whatever you like If you love em, then maybe do me a favour and give one of my other tracks a listen whilst your on my Soundcloud page. (My Band, Elmo Sexwhistle, has a song called "Roses" on there)
If you love em so much you feel you've robbed me, then all donations welcome paypalled to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's the link, hopefully it should work, i got unlimited traffic on this thing:
Oh, and if someone wants to upload it to a different provider, mediafire, etc, please feel free, just keep my name on the Rar file
Sorry if my post is riddled with spelling mistakes, it's been a long day and my time is limited.
Enjoy the samples!

I saved them as monolith files so there should be no problems with sample references, i hope (fingers crossed!)

The fact that people are using/enjoying my work, and are leaving nice comments up here is very rewarding and makes me very happy, i might become addicted to this free sample malarkey
