Nintendo Sounds


Puremagnetik has released Punchpak, a collection of sounds created from the 8 bit synthesizer chip on the classic Nintendo (NES) gaming console.
All sounds have been mapped out and programmed into the Ableton Live 6, EXS24 and Kontakt 2 environments. Puremagnetik have taken the sounds a step further with added effects that include ambience and arpeggiation.
Punchpak also includes a selection of multisampled menus with lo-fi glitch, noise and static sounds. With patch names like "Zelda", "Castlevania", and "Mega Man", Puremagnetik tell us that they have recaptured these vintage 1980's video game sounds for the modern DAW.
The Ableton Live version of Punchpak includes instrument racks for both Sampler and Simpler while the Kontakt 2 version comes with a customized KSP panel for easy editing.
Punchpak Includes:
  • A comprehensive collection of "8-bit" Nintendo sounds
  • Fully integrated with Kontakt 2 and Ableton Live audio effects
  • Extensive rack and Macro programming for Ableton Live
  • Glitch and lo-fi effect menus
  • Easy editing KSP interfaces for Kontakt 2
