Soundtrack Loops intros C64 8 Bit Adventure Loops & One-shots w/ Drum & Kontakt Kits. Swedish coder and producer Linus Åkesson is one very serious circuit bender—check out his immense and highly captivating body of work, where you'll find some very deep dives into C64 programming, sound design, original music composition, and a great deal more. Clearly, Linus loves to share, and so here we have C64 8-Bit Adventure, a collection of loops, one shots and more, all generated by a bespoke musical instrument that Linus has dubbed the Commodordion—an 'accordion' comprising two C64 computers that bookend a real, functional bellows system constructed of an origami-like assembly of 5.25" paper floppy disc casings! This instrument sets C64 8-Bit Adventure apart—the bellows is actually an electro-mechanical modulator that changes the sound as it's being played. And so here, in a package containing 82 loops (distributed across 10 different theme kits), 168 delightful one shots, 9 Kontakt .nki files, and an Ableton Drum Rack, we have the sound of the Commodordion—a one-off, genius-grade, mad scientist-level instrument that captures the classic sounds of the Commodore 64 computer in all its 8-bit glory, and with added organic modulations that go far beyond typical circuit bending exercises, and into some truly esoteric and fun places.
Formats include (48kHz 24-bit):
