Total Music & Entertainment
Synth Museum
Features over 80 sample sets of classic and rare synthesizers from over 30 different manufacturers, mostly from the early to mid 1980's. There's even one from the late 1970's that is the size of most living-rooms ... no keys all modular (who knows why but it's here).

These are very-high-quality recordings of the actual synth at CD quality or higher. They were recorded as multi-notes over several octaves so each is an exact duplicate of that synth - NOT AN EMULATION. These have also been loaded into our samplers and are available at the click of a mouse and can then be even further modulated. They have been compiled from the private collection of our owners and are being made available for the first time as standard gear in our studio.
