Got some of the keyboards laying around for ages. Recently thought that it could be much more useful if I had sound fonts of these. So I sampled two keyboards, to begin with. Never did SF2 before, but it seemingly went all fine. Maybe someone here will find it useful too:


http://shiru.untergrund.net/files/sf2/ss-326.zip - a very basic toy. Sample-based, 3 instruments, 5 drum sounds.

http://shiru.untergrund.net/files/sf2/cyber_piano.zip - a much better, one of the best Chinese makes (not a Casio, still). Presumably a clone of a Japanese toy. Sample-based, 16 instruments, 5 pitched animal voices, 8 drum sounds.

One more SoundFont.

http://shiru.untergrund.net/files/sf2/bf-630.zip - sample-based keyboard, but samples are short looped waveforms with (fixed) volume envelopes, very chiptune-like. 16 instruments, 8 drum sounds.

Got another couple of keyboards sampled. The HS-3230 one has kind of MOD like sound, these realistic but severely degraded and a bit detuned samples like very early ST modules had. The TX-8488A one is very chiptune-like, with simple waveforms but fat sound (likely done by running two detuned copies of the same waveform). Both has that certain lo-fi vibe, too.

A side note, just launched a Patreon page where you will be able to get some inside on my developments of VSTs, SF2s, trackers, tools, plus plan announcements, early releases, and more: https://www.patreon.com/shiru8bit
