We all recognise those beautifully bleepy 8-bit sounds of yesterday, but do you know how to create them? With the explosion of those dirty beats with a cross of electronic features it’s cool to take people back to when they played Zelda and threw that controller. Fear not, this 8-Bit samples pack comes stacked with all the right sounds and offers a big selection of lo-fi noises that are ready to be dropped into your productions.
Based on simple synth sources, these have been squashed and processed to give you that authentic chiptune vibe. The 8-bit samples are divided into four folders: Bitty Noises, FM Arp Loops, VocoBit Hits and VocoBit Noises. All the samples are supplied as WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. Because they’re royalty-free, you’re welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like. The 8-bit samples are supplied in a zip file, so you’ll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy the free download!
Also check out the 8 bit percussion samples, which Contralogic put together with the soundchip used in the NES console. Get them as free download here.
