Earlier in the forums, someone suggested a library of instrument sounds from the 1980's. I've thought of something that might go with that. How about a library of instrument sounds from the 90's. Sounds used by popular musicians and programmers like Babyface, Todd Terry, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Walter Afanasieff.

Ummmmm..wouldn't that be under the Hip Hop / R&B collections? Most of those musicians you mentioned sampled stuff from the 80's anyways.

Which eighties stuff did they sample? I'm confused!

What I mean is, a lot of the loops and samples those guys use are spin-offs from 80's sounds such as the TR808 drum machine, etc.

How about some of the keyboard sounds they used? Like acoustic and electric pianos.

I found out, via Preston Glass, a popular producer and keyboard player, that the sounds I'm looking for come from the Roland MKS20, the Oberheim Matrix12, and some form of the Yamaha DX7, though I don't know whether it's the DX7 or the TX7. Aren't both of them similar? Or are they like identical twins? I'm confused!

Basically the same synth, but the TX7 was a non-rackmount version of the DX7.

Those are vintage keyboards from the early 80's, you can find most of those types of sounds in any vintage analog VST collection.

I heard this is a good one http://www.vintagesynth.com/misc/fm7.php

It seems that anything from Native Instruments isn't exactly screenreader-friendly. The way I know this is because I have Kontakt, and it appears that all the buttons are image-based, rather than text-based.

What do you mean? I find Kontakt to be the best sampler on the market, it is very user firendly.

Screen reader friendly means it works well with system software for the visually impaired.

Cool! I didn't know anything like that existed.

that orinoko flow harp from the d50 :P Seriously why Roland is not taking the opportunity to bring these things to vst. Yeah they have these hardware plugins for their v synth but hmm.. that not really mainstream.

SOmetimes you have reFX who are doing these things for their nexus 2 expansions. The sad thing is that when EWLQ would do a "d50" sample pack, it's going to cause troubles with Roland.

Is that because of fear of competitors? I'm confused!
