Ready for some free classic synth samples? MusicRadar.com is celebrating “synth week” and they want you to come along to the party. The powers-that-be at the popular royalty free music website are giving you a selection of classic synth sounds. The sounds come from ARP’s Odyssey and Solina instruments, and Roland’s System 100. As a fun and additional bonus, you can also download single hits from some of the finest drum machines throughout history, including Roland’s TR-909 and 808 beatboxes.
All you need to do is download the samples and get to work using and mixing them. According to MusicRadar.com, the samples are split into four different folders. Three folders cover the featured synths, and the fourth folder contains all of the drum machine content. There are riffs, multisamples and single hits available. All the music samples are supplied as WAV files, so they can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice. The best part is that the samples are royalty free music, so you can use them however you like. MusicRadar.com’s only stipulation is that you do not redistribute the music samples.
