Best Service Cult Sampler released
29th March 2004
Cult Sampler from Best Service, a Native Instruments Kompakt based sample library instrument plugin, is now shipping.
This unique library includes all of the charming sounds of the late 70s to the early 80s. Because the samplers at that time suffered from severe limitations in memory capacity (RAM), excessive 'artistic' high level sound programming was a must. Pitching and stretching of sounds was obligatory and 8 bit sounds were mostly the standard. This resulted in sounds with a very special character, a character that nowadays is missing in our hyper-clean 24 bit/96 kHz world of almost unlimited RAM.
The 2000 sounds and multi-samples are perfectly laid out to play on your keyboard and include the sounds of early, vintage samplers like Orchestron, EMU II, Akai S-612, Ensoniq Mirage, Fairlight, Synclavier, Linn, Mellotron, Master Studio Coll., FZ-1, and DSS-1.
Cult Sampler is available as a VST/DX/RTAS plugin for Windows, Mac OS 9 & Mac OS X with a UK RRP of £112.95.
