Free EXS24 Instrument – Roland System 101 Model 101
This is good stuff. Vintage synth aficionados, go check out modularsamples.com, a great resource for some free EXS24 Instruments. Their latest addition consists of over 8Gb of audio samples taken from the Roland System 101 Model 101, the legendary semi-modular monosynth from 1975.
Roland System 101 Model 101 Samples
The Roland System 101 Model 101 Construction Kit is a highly detailed collection of audio samples taken from the Model 101 synthesizer. Each note has been sampled over a 6 octave range, and for each note there are 6 velocity layers. Each layer has different filter settings.
Most samples I checked are about 10 or 11 seconds long.
Note that the sampled waveforms are basic:
- Noise (white and pink)
You’ll have to build your own presets by combining these waveforms. Using Track Stacks may come in handy.
How to Install
The Roland System 101 Model 101 Construction Kit comes in versions for both EXS24 and Native Instruments Kontakt.
