Ever wonder what it sounds like when you hook up a Motif to a Triton? Of how about a Mini Moog to a Super Jupiter or a Karma to the Wavestation? Well so did The Patch King and they think it's pretty awesome when you mix the warm sound of a vintage analog synth to the clean digital sound and multi effects of a modern workstation.
The Patch King has spent several months deep inside his collection of synths assembling a collection of sounds that he calls "Midi Mix". Midi Mix contains samples from over 20 of the best synthesizers released over the past three decades. All sounds are sampled from Kid Nepro's custom made sound libraries and then "layered together" to create totally unique textures.
Midi Mix Vol #1 is available in AIFF & WAV file formats: $75. (multisampled and well organized for easy key mapping into your sampler). It's also available in Akai S1000/S3000 formats: $150. (All set up as Akai programs. Just load and play)
