Identify these samples?

Post by GBP » Thu Feb 16, 2017 10:14 pm

Hi everyone!

I have some very unique samples that I really want to know the sources of. I know for a fact that these samples were used in 2005-6 so that narrows the time frame a little. The orchestra hits (both major and minor) sound very Roland, in fact the SC88 orchestra hit is a layered version of the major one. The bass sounds very FM-like, however is richer than anything I've heard before. Finally, the power chords guitar is pretty unique as well. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Here are the samples:

Thank you very much!!

Those sound like they came from an Amiga or even a Commodore 64.

The snare hit is a sample of a TR-909 snare

Thanks for your response! However this game is too new to use Amiga? I'd say from what I've found, Korg, Roland or some other more common and relatively contemporary synths are involved. The same composer used a Roland (Edirol) SD-90 for the games that have these samples, so it probably is a synth that came out in early 2000s. This TR-909 sample was probably from this mysterious synth that sampled it like many others :cry: Anyone recognize the FM bass from somewhere by any chance?

The Hit sounds like an Emu Emax library sound
Roland Promars, E-mu EMAX and some other machines...
