Created with Virus TI synthesizer
Virus Ti is arguably one of the most advanced hardware synthesizer. It was used for designing the instruments in this sample pack. I used my experience with creating chip tunes and chip tune sounds. Therefore I tried to mimic chiptune techniques when creating the sounds.
The instruments have been recorded from the synthesizer. And then prepared as samples. We tried to keep them as natural as possible. Sorry, as pixelated as possible 😉
Testing within composition
Although instruments may sound well when played out of any context, it’s better to try them within specific composition. That is what is done. So sometimes it was required to improve the sound.
Final rendering and selection
If sounds pass the tests succesfully, it’s time to render them finally. Usually there are more instruments and not all of them are worth being included in a sample pack. The most interesting and representative are selected. To keep the high quality and variety at the same time.
