A sample-kit of the 20 notes a Stylophone produces
Recorded by using the Stylophone’s headphone out connected to a M-Audio Fast Track Pro at 96000Hz with 24-Bits of resolution. Carefully cut and tested by yours truly. And I’ve even included patches for Ableton’s Simpler and Sampler! During the recording the pitch of the Stylophone was tuned all the way down to get the most out of the bass.
Find the download below, but please take notice of the install instructions!
To install the Ableton Simpler and/or Sampler, check the following steps:
1. Locate the Ableton library. 2. Open the “Samples” folder located within the Ableton library. 3. Place the folder “JordyVision” in the “Samples” folder.* 4. Go back to the library and find a folder named “Presets”, open it. 5. Open the folder labeled “Instruments”. 5. Place the file named “Stylophone by JordyVision.adg” in the folder titled “Instrument Rack”, and “Stylophone by JordyVision.adv” in the “Sampler” folder.**
*If you’ve already installed the TR-505 and TR-606 samples before, just place the folder named “Stylophone” in the “JordyVision” folder. **You can also double click the file(s) to open them in Ableton, then save them to the library within the application.
Of my own productions, Sick’O’Six is my personal favorite, it’s unreleased as of yet.. (Keep an eye out for a certain 12″ in 2012!). But you can hear it in my Cloudcast: 303 Decks Don’t Need FX. Apparent in this track is my transition from digital to analog production over the year. 2012 will be mostly analog, a happy perspective.
The biggest loss of this year was NOT re-visiting Japan! I miss the place and people and I really hope to be there again soon..
However, the biggest win was going to Paris with @Mooiechocolat. And I’ve been to Paris again with @CaroSiburny. And I’ll go again this very week!!! I ❤ Paris!
I was cleaning-up my samples folder and ran into these samples I once made, probably back in 2007 or 2008. Simple and funny, the dial pad of a telephone can be used to add a whole different beep to your bang.
Theoretically you can sequence a telephone-number in Ableton and initiate a call! Just hold the phone’s receiver up to your speaker while playing back the sounds and the call should commence. Oh, this will work only with a landline, mobiles don’t dial that way. I have little experience with VoIP phones, so I don’t know if they work with DTMF tones. Head on over to Wikipedia to learn more about DTMF.
Another vintage drum-computer, this time completely analog, but sampled just as deliciously and noise-free as possible.
Samples recorded through an M-Audio Fast Track Pro using the TR-606′s only line-out, the mono line-out. Noise reduction via Ableton Live’s gate device. Further editing and sample-rate conversion done in Audacity. Rendered in both 24-Bit 96000Hz AIFF and 16-Bit 44100Hz WAV.
The vintage sample-based digital drum-computer, deliciously sampled for your sampling pleasure; The Roland TR-505 Sample Pack
