Sharooz Raoofi of Sample Magic has released Principle Pleasure Studios, a collection of analog synthesizer multi-samples from his LA-based studio.
Principle Pleasure Studios is a freely downloadable sound library containing over 1 GB of royalty-free analog synth multi-samples. The samples are provided in WAV format. You can use them in virtually any digital audio workstation or sampler instrument available on the market.
According to Sharooz’s post on Facebook, he recorded these samples a while ago, just in case he was in a situation where he couldn’t access his favorite synthesizers. The samples can now be downloaded completely free of charge. Here’s more info about the library:
Working at my LA studio has been a privilege – sorely missed right now. A few years ago I multi-sampled my favorite synths and drum boxes (100+ of them) in the event that if ever I couldn’t get there, I’d have instant access. I’ve really enjoyed these sounds, they’re my go-to palette. Now feels an ideal time to share them. There are over 1GB of samples, all put through the best channel strips and converters around, unprocessed.
Like Sharooz, many sound designers and developers are releasing their products for free to help music producers stay at home and stay creative during the COVID-19 epidemic. We’ve seen some excellent freebies from Moog, Native Instruments, and others. Find all the freebie offers in our #StayAtHome article.
Principle Pleasure Studios is available for free download via WeTransfer. The download link will expire in seven days, so be quick and grab your free copy while the offer is still valid.
The library doesn’t include any sampler mappings. This means that you will need to manually map out the sounds in your favorite sampler plugin. Thankfully, our reader Nako Music has created a free set of NI Kontakt mappings that you’ll find in the comments section below.
