SID Sounds Vol1+2 | Sound Libraries | Sampleism

Product Overview

The Commodore 64 was one of the first computers I grew up using after owning a Commodore Vic20. While I love the the sounds that it makes, it's not exactly the easiest piece of hardware to use various DAWs. So, what I decided to do was sample the raw wave forms that it has and set them up as instruments in a sample library for Kontakt.

It should work for most versions full versions of Kontakt but you can contact me if you have any problems. It will not work properly for the free Kontakt Player, though, since it will time out after a certain period of time.

SID Sounds Volume 1 for Kontakt gives you access to all of the wav files in the library. So, those who have the know how can edit them or load them into other samplers. There are a total of 282 samples to work with. Since so many samples were recorded, there is no stretching done except near the upper and lower octaves. The SID never really produces the same exact wave form twice and these little slices will give you that sound. If there's enough interest in this Library, I'll work on sampling various combined wave forms from the Commodore 64 and release them in a similar manner. Right now this library has these wave forms: Saw, square, triangle, saw-square, triangle-square, and noise.

There is also a collection of drum sounds. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I have started to put up some demos of this Library and you can listen to them below. This short demo was put together with five instances of Kontakt 5 in Reaper. Only the sounds in this library were used and no effects have been applied.


If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in SID Sounds Vol1+2
