Today we announce the Spaceport '77 expansion library for SampleTank 4! Made using two keyboards for fans of a certain galaxy far, far away: the Oberheim® OB-1 synthesizer and the Yamaha® CP-30 electronic piano, this collection offers stellar sounds from classic machines.
Spaceport '77 captures the essence of the Oberheim OB-1 monophonic analog synthesizer, designed and manufactured in the late ‘70s. The OB-1 signal path begins with two discrete oscillators and suboscillators, along with a noise generator. Discrete lowpass filter options include 12dB or 24dB per octave, for both the classic Oberheim 2-pole filter sound and the legendary Minimoog 4-pole filter sound. SampleTank filters can be applied as well.
The Yamaha CP-30 is an electronic piano from 1976 that uses analog synthesis for its sound generation. Spaceport ‘77 includes sound selections that simulate the CP-30 Decay control knob being used to simultaneously adjust attack and decay parameters in a way that’s similar to a regular synthesizer's ADSR envelope. Two tone-generation systems are also featured, with a choice of independent fine tuning and decay control to create animated electric piano, clavinet and harpsichord sounds complete with their rich character.
A great complement to both the modern synth sounds and classic electric piano sounds already in SampleTank 4’s library, this new expansion library adds 100 new instrument presets and 3.9 GB of samples, plus pre-programmed control macros and sound effects. Designed to give your tracks some ‘70s and ‘80s sci-fi flavor, this library inspires new grooves, mixing current and classic sounds!
Spaceport ‘77 is available for free to all new and existing SampleTank 4 users via direct download from now through December 31st (regular price will be $/€79.99*). Download here.
This library comes alongside a new SampleTank 4.0.9 update.
