Samples From Mars offers the Synare From Mars ($29 value) drum sample library as a free download from their website.
Synare From Mars is a free collection of drum sounds sampled from the Synare analog drum synthesizer by Star Instruments. This rare drum synth is a unique source of early electronic drums like disco toms (you know that sound!), noise-heavy snares, and similar no-frills analog percussion sounds.
But there’s more to the Synare drum synthesizer that simple drum sounds. It was also used as a reggae dub siren, an SFX machine, and even as a simple analog synthesizer (because that’s what it really was). Synare featured a proper analog filter and fat analog oscillators with plenty of character.
Samples From Mars really went to town when they sampled the content for the Synare From Mars library. The pack includes over 1,900 Star Instruments Synare samples in 24-bit WAV format.
You’re getting eight fully chromatic multi-sampled synth patches, ten drum kits (16 samples in each kit), and a bunch of bonus samples that include sound effects, processed sounds, bass hits, and more.
In addition to the sample content in WAV format, Synare From Mars also includes kits for popular sampler formats like Kontakt, Battery, MPC, Ableton Live, and others. The total size of the included audio content is over 2 GB when extracted.
Visit the product page for audio demos and for an in-depth overview of the original Synare synthesizer and its features.
Here’s how the Samples From Mars team describes the library:
The Synare is an analog drum synth created in the mid-70s. It looks (and sounds) like the evilest flying saucer you’ve ever heard. We’ve extensively multi-sampled these thick and juicy oscillators, squelching resonance, and white noise, dub sirens, cosmic trickles, sub-bass, and of course the classic syn-drums.
