Bitley has released Wavelight , a series of pure Fairlight disks sampled in 44,1 khz / 16 bit fidelity. Here's what they have to say...
These are the same samples used in our refill 'Bitley Supersonic / Fairlight CMI Legacy II'.
Please note: The original Fairlight sounds were 8 bit samples. Therefore, 16 bits is fully sufficient to completely copy the Fairlight IIx sound for any sound source, be it an old hardware sampler or any music software application. Every effort has been made to maintain the purity of the Fairlight tone yet keeping noise level to a minimum. All sounds are normalized.
Loop points have not been set in the wave files, for your own maximum flexibility with the sounds, however, the sounds have 9 times out of 10 been looped -- the Fairlight certainly didn't have a generous sampling time, so looping is basically a part of its sound & character.
All sounds comes in both AIFF and WAV formats.
This disk contains no multi samples. All samples are recorded at middle C, for being easily laid out on any sampling instrument.
