Previously unreleased! Vinyl record samples from way back in the 1970s.
I have been inspired to present this massive 4.5 GB collection of 17,729 individual, unedited wav samples - most around 1 second in duration. As usual they are packed into 49 .rar archives to reduce download time. You will need a program, such as WinRar to decompress the files (read how
) before you can listen to them as it is not practical to host large wav files.
All these original, not-to-be-found-anywhere-else samples have been carefully recorded from 1970,s vinyl LP and 7 inch records in stereo. They are a very eclectic mix of Pop, Easy Listening, Jazz, Classical, Soundtrack, Big Band, Rock, Sound Effects and More. They are not really aimed at modern dance music producers, but for those with a taste for rich, deep, resonant, acoustic music recorded in vast recording studios using the best of 1970's microphones, valve pre-amps, tape decks and cutting lathes.
Of course this was all before the advent of MIDI and digital processing that changed the world (for the better? Discuss...) in the 1980's. Back then we had massive studios with equally massive budgets to employ the very best studio musicians and orchestras, displaying virtouso playing and arrangement skills. And to top it all off, the studio recording engineers were at the very top of their game - and you can hear the difference.
Cheeze Alert! However, I must warn you that in these archives are to be found some seriously schmaltzy, sentimental sounds. You have been told, so download at your own risk.
If you're fine with that then get busy re-mixing and editing these sounds into some sumptuously, velvet-curtain-draped, soundtrack fantasies. Let me know if you have any mp3 links I can place on this site.
Oh, and before I forget - I cannot give sample copyright clearance for any samples, you must use them at your own discretion. I am more than happy for these dusty old sounds to be released from the archives and made into something new, just provide a link back to www.dave40.co.uk , thanks.
