The Drum Broker has announced the release of Erik Jackson’s Supernatural, a free sample pack inspired by Netflix original hit series Stranger Things.
Supernatural was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to spend a few days at an amazing vintage studio down in Florida. The minute I played a chord on the Roland Jupiter 8, I knew what I had to do!
The Netflix series, Stranger Things has been an marvelous reminder of the beautiful sounds that some of these vintage synth could produce. I thought it would be fun to make a sample pack showing demonstrating the sonic quality of these synthesizes while paying homage to the show.
The free Supernatural sample pack contains over 350MB of long shots and loops created with Roland Jupiter 8, Roland SH 101, Oberhiem Matrix 6 and Roland TR-808. In depth, expect 20 synth arpeggios/long sequences, 20 long bass tones, 20 brass melodies, 20 melodic leads, 20 one shot synths and tones, 20 pads and 20 808 drum loops.
All samples were recorded in 24-bit WAV, directly from the synthesizers, through the FX chain and then to analog tape. The hardware FX’s include a Moogerfooger combo, Roland Space Echo – RE 201 and Yamaha R100 Reverb.
Supernatural is available for free download (320MB ZIP file) at The Drum Broker. Add the pack to cart, then fill in the form at checkout.
