97 vintage electric musical toys in one single instrument.
This is certainly the most insane sound library in the market: 97 vintage musical toys were carefully sampled in the very best conditions, 24 bits / 96khz quality, most of them recorded with the best microphones and preamps.
With more than 1000 presets and 14 000 samples, you will feel like having all these toys right under your fingertips. Every aspect of each machine has been captured : multi-sampled instruments with release samples for every note, rhythms converted into sliced loops, GM drumkits created, FX and speech voices carefully organized ...
These jewels' character come from their acoustic assembling and the "cheap" speakers they use. To capture the essence of them, we did sample them in a superb sounding studio room. We took the time to find the right microphone for the right machine, then recorded every note and every sound possible (including release samples, key clicks, etc...), we also did record drumloops or instrument loops (note that with the UVI Workstation or MachFive2, the loops will sync directly to the desired tempo).
After editing this huge amount of sounds, we did finalize this epic work by trying to find the best way to organize the collection, and here is the result, dealt out in 10 categories: Children, Developed, Drums & FX, Mini Sampler, Musical Toys, Organ Basic, Silly, Small, Speech & Style-o-phone.
