Puremagnetik Releases alphaSynth


Puremagnetik has released alphaSynth, which they describe as a library of old-school sounds captured from an early Apple home computer with an Alpha Syntauri music system.
The Alpha Syntauri was a music system designed around the expansion capabilities of the Apple ][. The hardware consisted of an external piano-style keyboard, with a 3-card set that plugged into the Apple ][, including a keyboard interface card, and the two-board Mountain Computer Music System. Software was designed to support music composition and performance.
Puremagnetik tells us that they have captured the 8-bit charm of this early home computer music system and reprogrammed everything for the modern music workstation. They say that, whether you are looking for aliased chippy sounds, lo-fi leads or quirky percussion, alphaSynth brings one of the best things about 1982 right to your desktop.
Alpha Syntauri recordings and programming are courtesy of Christopher Randall.
