Today's collection of free samples looks backwards in time to the '70s, the decade when synths came of age.
In putting together this pack, we ran a ton of soft synths from Arturia's venerable V Collection through some luxurious outboard gear, focusing on emulations of classic '70s instruments, including the ARP 2600, Yamaha CS-80, Mellotron, EMS Synthi and ARP Solina. Scroll down to hear a selection of sounds or just hit the download link and get sampling.
What you need to know
The samples in this sample pack are supplied as 24-bit WAV files so can be imported directly into your DAW or sampler of choice.
Because they're royalty-free, you're welcome to use the samples in your music in any way you like - all we ask is that you don't re-distribute them.
The samples are supplied in a zip file, so you'll need to extract them before you can see them. Enjoy!
