This library has been developed with kind approval from Fairlight and Synclavier respectively. It includes the complete Fairlight CMI II+ library which we sampled from a pristine machine and rebuilt completely. This took four years of full time work to complete. To complete the 80s studio setup samples were also taken from a number of other synths samplers and drum machines such as Casio CZ and VZ, Roland D-series, Oberheim DMX and DX, the TR drum machines, Linndrum, Emulator II and much more.
