Sampleso has released their latest Kontakt instrument, FloppyTron. They tell us that the library features a deep sampled floppy drive with some unique and exclusive features. Here's the details in their own words...
This instrument is a true testament to our dedication to give our users the most unique and special instruments, so you could stand out and get a unique sound for your productions.
The Floppytron was inspired by YouTube videos featuring floppy drives playing classic tunes from movies and video games. This basic yet complicated concept lead us to create an instrument unlike anything else we've ever seen before, including some features that are guaranteed to upgrade your productions, and spark your creativity.
Our team has a custom built and programmed the circuit that converts midi information from a keyboard controller to the necessary information for the floppy drive to play a musical note. This circuit was based on an Arduino Uno and was coded specifically for this project.
The drive was carefully sampled using state of the art equipment, using acoustic techniques to give the instrument a bigger, fuller sound. After which we implemented the samples onto our signature custom Kontakt engine, and added some exclusive features to compliment the floppy drive sound, resulting in a one of a kind instrument that will definitely keep your creativity flowing.
