We are now in the download and voting stage of the KVR Developer Challenge 2012. This news item features an entry called Commodore 64 Synthesizer Sessions DELUXE by Bedroom Producers Blog and Rhythmic Robot. You can download it for free here.
Here's what they say about it:
The sample library contains 30 individual instrument patches. These patches cover a range of well known Commodore 64 era video game sounds, as well as some classic synth sounds which were recreated using the SID chip.
Our goal was to capture the true character of the SID chip, from its beautiful analog filter to the gritty digital oscillators. The 30 included patches are only a starting point, from which the users can further sculpt the sounds using the included SFZ, NKI and Zampler mappings.
- 30 multi-sampled instrument patches (Kontakt 4 + SFZ + Zampler).
- 1 complete Commodore 64 drum kit.
- Kontakt 4 interface with a custom GUI.
- 411 individual samples (16-bit WAV).
- 132 MB download size.
