Dictaphone Loop Synth
As the name suggests, this library was created by recording a synthesiser onto home-made microcassette tape loops. Splicing these tiny tapes is fiddly work, and the results are distorted, wobbly, noisy recordings with a crushed bandwidth and frequent drop-outs. They were perfect. As soon as I heard them I was blown away, and when I shared my first experiments on twitter, Pianobook veteran Angus Roberts-Carey immediately replied “sample it!”
Here is the result, a couple of patches using the dry samples, and a couple of patches turned into pads with the help of Valhalla Supermassive.
I hope that you find these ghostly sounds inspiring, or at least somehow useful.
