Precision Sound release a sample collection of legendary electronic toy instruments 22/02/07
We reported the release of Precision Sound's Retro Gadgets volume 2 last year and now the company tell us that they have introduced Retro Gadgets - First Chapter which they say is a collection of legendary electronic toy instruments - although we (and probably Rolf Harris) take exception at their calling the mighty Stylophone a toy!
The company tell us that to prepare these old toy instruments for modern use in a DAW based studio they fine tuned each note exactly so you can add true retro flavour instantly in your production without any hassle and compromises.
They say that every note of the instruments natural range and sound possibilities has been captured and promise that this is better than the real thing if you are working modern music production, all the pros are left and the cons are goneâ€¦ The library contains:
Dubrek Stylophone (Black)
Dubrek Stylophone (White)
V-Tech - Music Major
Texas Instruments Speak & Music
Casio VL-1 (VL-Tone)
All formats are included when you buy Retro Gadgets - First Chapter so you can download whatever format you like or all of them. Pricing and Availability:
Retro Gadgets - First Chapter costs $55 (+$11 if you want it on CD). More information:
