New Version of Toy Keyboard ROMpler (Free/Donationware)

SampleScience has announced the release of Toy Keyboard (new version), a free instrument plugin and sample library featuring the sound of the Yamaha PSR-78 home keyboard.

All the sounds have been sampled and looped when appropriate. To keep the plugin light, each sound contains only one sample stretched over the keyboard.

The C3 note has been sampled for each sound, but in some cases, you’ll hear a different note (C1 or C2). To respect the original mapping of the PSR-78, SampleScience decided to keep the C1 and C2 notes to C3. The labeled and looped WAV files are also available.

Features:

  • 72 sounds + 1 drum kit
  • 39 MB of samples (16-bit, 44.1kHz mono Wav files)
  • Multi-LFO
  • Room reverb
  • Highpass/Lowpass filter
  • Amplitude range controls
  • 3 voice modes: polyphonic, monophonic, and legato

Toy Keyboard is available as a VST/VST3/AU plugin for DAWs and other plugin hosts operating on macOS and Windows.

A few weeks ago, SampleScience also released Analog Waveforms and Resonance Piano, two free ROMpler instruments featuring the basic waveforms of DSi Mopho, respectively a cinematic piano.
