Roland S-330, long demo of custom sounds!

Not many S-330 demos around so I thought I would put together this showcase of my own sounds, which I have sampled from various sources, the CS1x, audio CDs, etc. The S-330 is quite punchy and even though it only has 750 kb. of memory you can fit surprisingly much on a single floppy, due to 12 bit sampling rate and either 30 / 15khz. For example, all the sounds in this clip are from 3 disks (750kb) -still with room to spare. I've been able to find seamless loops on many samples, but not all are finished yet. On some sounds you can hear the ping-pong reverse looping which can make for some interesting FX.

Recorded on the Zoom R16. To give a bit more life to the sounds I put on a touch of soft reverb and delay. No EQ or other enhancements though. My usual disclaimer: I can't play for s**t, but I hope you like it anyway! :lol:

Amazing, your sounds rock, who could think they come from a " low budget" sampler !
I am always amazed by those breathy vocal sounds, how to get such an effect on simple "ahhh" ?
Anyway this demo goes right inside my Iphone to make my way to the office a bit happier.
If one day you want to share these banks with me in a kontakt format, tell me .... ^^
Thnk for your music

Sounds great!

All my gear is piled up because of "re-arrangements" in the house. This makes me miss my S-550!

Not impossible my friend, extreme sample converter can do it -like before, with the S-50 library. First I have to organize them better and polish the samples more, find better loop points on some, etc.

Nice sounds and riffs. I might sample one off to use as a ringtone!

Thanks for reporting that, it seems all my files except pictures on filefreak has been corrupted! Real fun.

Good news is I just got a new MU account, I will have all the sample libraries up again soon. Will try to upload the most important mp3s on filefreak again though.

Update
: I have restored the S-330 demo, it works fine now. ;)

D-Collector, if you are still here, I second what Hagen11 asked (please re-upload the S330 demo). Also, I love your avatar (spent hours playing Q*Bert back in the 80s!

Thanks, Scott

The demo file claims to still be there at http://www.filefreak.com/files/859367_i ... 20Demo.mp3 but you have to sign up (with CC #) to DL it. Perhaps someone braver than I...
