TH's CMI IIx is in that museum in Bristol, apparently the disc drive is dead. Common fault. Horizontal productions will sell you a CMI III hard drive stuffed with sounds, including apparently all of Trevor Horns' library. I'm considering a purchase, given that there's a free app for PC that can mou...

Re: uhoh i done said it sorry information wants you to pay,

http://ftp.id.uw.edu.pl/pub/music/Samples/Fairlight/?N=D Yuppieeee! I'm useful :P Anyway: the samples there are result of some tricks: it's real II of course, but with additional magic processing, like two different loop points with ARR1 on each channel to give it a nice stereo aura. You can never ...

Zero-X Seamless Looper. Thanks, hadn't heard of that one. Is it really as good as Infinity? It's certainly a lot better cheaper, and current. Better than Infinity ? No, nothing can really come close to that app. Just a shame they didn't port it to Windows or even OSX !! Zero-X is a great tool thoug...

Re: uhoh i done said it sorry information wants you to pay,

the only thing I couldn't nail was the orchestra hit. The ProRec/ Digital Domain IIx CD has the Pizz bass sound, ARR1 and the "Art of Sampling" disc has the yawning vocal sound and the harp glissando. I got the orchestra hit from an AON B-Side swamped in reverb, I'd like to know where the original ...

Or fix with with Antares Infinity :) Isn't that right Rob?
Shhhhhh.... ;)

Yes, Infinity or Zero-X Seamless Looper. However Akai's native tools in the S6000 do a great job too.

You can find the "Sararr" sample in the "Cult Sampler" VSTi or it's ProSamples sister product "Retro Sampler" by Best Service which comes in multi format (Akai/Acid/WAV/AIFF/HALion/EXS24/Audio). There is also a ProRec Fairlight IIx Sample CD . More Fairlight samples can also be found in the Zero-G/H...

The KPR sound packages are incredible value for money. There are some truly great sounds in there. Those, coupled with the official Hollow Sun free sounds we did for Alesis and our own Hollow Sun Freepacks, will give you a vast sonic arsenal to start off with until you decide to start creating yours...

Maybe consider an Alesis Fusion. No need for add ons as it has a full on VA synth, FM synth, Sampler & PM engine all under the bonnet. It also has full sequencing capabilities, with 8 track 24 bit digital audio recording too. The unit comes fitted with a 40GB HD to store all this and has a great han...
