Created with SIDTracker 64

Released couple years ago by Danel Larsson, SIDTracker 64 is advanced SID tunes tracker. It was used for designing the instruments in this sample pack.

Recording

The instruments have been exported to audio files from the SIDTracker 64. And then prepared in a form of samples. Sometimes normalisation was required. No other post processing have been applied.

Testing within composition

Although instruments may sound well when played wihout context, it’s better to try them within specific composition. That is what is done. So sometimes it is 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 are selected and included in the pack. To keep the high quality and variety at the same time.

Support

If you like and use my stuff, you can support me by buying my sample set of chiptune drums and percussion.
