Im a big fan of huge complex textures. The Ensoniq EPS-16+ is perfect for this
sort of things, with its huge amount of layers and excellent modulation features.
This is my first attempt on (re)creating some of my textures and pads on the
(more limited) emu8000 (AWE32) engine.
17 different 'instruments' sampled from the Roland TB-303 analog synthesizer.
This synthesizer is used a lot in 'modern' dance music / techno mostly for
bass-lines and arpeggiators. The 'typical' TB-303 sound has a closing filter
with plenty of resonance.
The sequel to Pads and Textures I, one of the most popular soundfonts I've
made. The soundfont is rather big, but it is worth the download time. The sounds
are all 'huge' vox-string-whoosh-ish sounds, created in a surprisingly short
time based on samples from the web.
The complete Korg M1 drumset. The drums are organized as a standard GM drumset.
I have only created 1 GM set, although a couple of more could easily be made
by selecting from the avalible basedrums, snares and hi hats. All individual
drums from the M1 are included, though.
A drumset from the Roland R8 drum machine. The soundfont consists of two drumsets,
both organized as standard GM drumsets. Excess sounds (a couple of snares)
have been put in the octave below the GM bassdrum 1 (C1). This drumset was
based on samples freely available on the net.
An acoustic kit built from samples of more than 30 acoustic percussive instruments.
There are quite a lot of useful sounds here, both standard percussion and weird
ethnic variants. The kit was based on samples freely available on the net.
A drumset based on samples from the famous Linn Drum Machine (LM-1). This is
the classic 80's drum machine - it began the whole drum machine phenomena.
The Linn Drum uses great sampled drum sounds, which at the time, was a fresh
alternative to the electronic drums of the 80's. It has been used by Phil Collins,
Thompson Twins, Stevie Wonder and The Art of Noise. Since I have never heard
this drum machine myself, I could need some help tuning and adjusting the drums
