Friday’s Freeware: Analog Tape Synths
Last year, Samples From Mars offered a drum machine library. This summer, their gift is a collection of synths that were tape recorded.
Analog Tape Synths features 10 multi-sampled synthesizers for use in Kontakt 5, Ableton Live 9 and Logic. Samples From Mars recorded Roland MKS-7, Oberheim SEM, Moog Micromoog and Novation Bass Station to a 1/4” tape. Some of the recordings last between 10 and 15 minutes, that quite some tape length…
The 737 MB collection also includes 24-bit WAV files that can be used in any DAW or sample player.
Analog Tape Synths is available for free download from samplesfrommars.com.
