Game Boy Drum Kit. Download.
A free collection of 8-bit drum samples which were recorded from a black Nintendo Game Boy running LSDJ software. All of the included samples are 100% dry and unprocessed, apart from the fact that they’ve been recorded through a compact tube preamp.
8-Bit Synths. Download.
8-Bit Synths is an Ableton Live Pack which brings old school video consoles and games to your sampler. In the late 80s these sound chips were the most common method for creating music on computers. You don’t need to be into making video game music or chiptune to use these though! The whole early West Coast Rocks scene around Flying Lotus, Ras G and Samiyam were heavily influenced by video game sounds. They took these nostalgic sounds and made them into forward thinking music. What are you going to build with these?
