floppy-disks

 

Kid Nepro is one of few sounds companies still supporting vintage samplers that use the old floppy disks. While we still offer the floppies for sale and delivery by snail mail, we have now made available most of our vintage sampler floppy disks as .img (image) files that can be downloaded. That means no more waiting for those old floppies to arrive in the mail. We have also slashed the price in half on all downloadable floppies images. Now only $5. for each disk image, as well as big savings on bulk orders. Email Us and let us know how many disks your looking to pick up. We will send you a price quote.

The not so good news is that you need a PC computer with an “internal floppy drive” in order to create your own floppy disks with the image files that you download. We include a free app with your order that lets you create the floppy disks. The app is for PC’s only. You can not do this with an external floppy drive. It will work with internal floppy drives only.

If you have the right hardware set up, then pick up a bunch of floppy’s and your ready to roll. Remember to choose the correct floppy type for your sampler. Many of the old samplers use the “High Density” 1.44 MB disks. They are getting harder to find these days, there are still many places were you can get them. A quick google search will turn up several. However, a few old samplers will only read “Double Density” 720k disks. We have listed them below. Those can be pretty hard to find any more, but you can still get some if you look around.

If you need any more info, just Email Us or give a call and we will be happy to help. Here is a list of what is available. Just click each link to bring you to the floppy disk lists.

The price of the floppy’s are $10. each at the links below, when sent through snail mail, but only $5. each when downloaded as image files. Contact us with the image numbers of the files you would like and we will send you a price quote. Killer deals on bulk orders. The more you buy, the more you save!

Here’s what’s available as download:

Akai S1000 Library. This is compatible with most S-Series samplers. Click on the link for more info. Requires High Density floppy disks.

New Sound Library For Korg Kronos – EXi Super Synths

New Kid Nepro Releases No Comments »

kronos9

 

Korg Kronos Volume #9 – EXi Super Synths combines four Kronos synth engines to create an amazing mix of classic and modern synth sounds. 64 Programs – 32 Combis – Only $39. USD.

Korg really raised the bar when they included nine different sound engines under the hood of Kronos. One of the coolest features available in Kronos is being able to combine two different engines (in program mode) and as many as all nine if you want to take things to the max in combi mode.

After focusing on programming sounds for the individual engines in our fist eight Kronos sound libraries, we thought the time was right to put together a collection of sounds that combines several of the engines. Since we wanted it to be a EXi “Synth” library, we picked the synth engines which were best at recreating that style – Mod-7, Al-1, MS-20 & Poly 6.

All programs have two OSC’s and two engines included in each patch. Combis include all four engines together as well as drums and percussion from the HD-1 engine in the drum track and KARMA modules. The results are a truly unique set of “Super Synth” sounds that bring together the best of what is possible in each of the Kronos sound engines.

Some Talk Talk About The Synth Sounds On It’s My Life

Classic Rock, New Kid Nepro Releases No Comments »

Someone over at the Korg Kronos forum was looking for the synth sounds used on this tune, so I went on over to YouTube to have a listen and it brought me right back to early 80’s and the sound of Long Islands WLIR. Synth pop heaven. Great song, great track!

I googled around to see if I could find out what instruments where used and could not find much, but I did run across a web page that mentioned that Talk Talk had a pair of Roland Jupiter 8’s and used them on the “It’s My Life” album. Also, while searching around YouTube I found a cool live video that has the keyboard player using several Roland Synths, including a JP8. The JP8 was very popular at the time and lot’s of guys had them in their rig.

In the original track there are three sounds used in the song. So I’ve created three new programs for Kronos. They are set up to load into USER-G program bank.

1- Synth “Lead” for verses

2- Mello Pad for verses

3- Bright Synth for end of verses and chorus

Since parts 1 & 2 play together at times I’ve created a split combi which includes both programs. I’ve also created a second combi to use during the part 3 end of verse and chorus. It’s essentially the same as the program, only set up in combi mode. This way you can easily switch from one combi to the next when going from verse to chorus and back. The combis load into the USER-D bank.

There is a bridge in the song that has what sounds like a Soprano Sax sound on it, but I did not program anything for that. Hopefully you have a sax player to do that part, or you can just improvise something with a lead sound on Kronos. The live versions feature the percussion instead.

Parts one and two were created using the Kronos HD-1 ROM samples. They are close to the original, but I added a couple of things to help them cut through the mix. I could not find anything in the HD-1 engine that would sound as awesome as that bright synth sound on the chorus, so I sampled my old Roland MKS80 – which is a close cousin to the JP8. Nothing like the real thing! I already had a patch that I had programmed with this tune in mind and with a bit of tweaking I think I got it pretty close to the original. After importing into Kronos, I just added some reverb and a chorus on SW1 along with a couple of other effects to the Kronos controls.

Also included is a .KSC file that includes the new samples and an additional folder that has the raw wav samples, so you can set them up in another hardware or software sampler if you like.

I did not bother to do any KARMA programming since the sounds are meant to be used while playing a live gig. I’d be interested in how the sounds hold up during a live performance. It’s cool to see a couple of Talk Talk’s live performance of this tune, where you have two keyboard players doing all the synth parts in addition to using a Yamaha Electric Grand and Organ. The E-Grand and Organ sounds certainly add a lot to the band on a live gig, so I’m wondering how these sounds hold up compared to using the organ and piano sounds. The best approach seems to be how they set things up live at the Montreux gig, with two keyboard players. One doing the piano and organ and the other doing the synth stuff.

Anyway, it was lot’s of fun putting everything together. Hope you can use them on your next gig!

Download folder contains the following files:

1- IML folder – contains Kronos KSF files for Chorus

2- IML Chorus Wav Files – If you want to set them up with another hardware or software sampler

3- IML_UserBank.KSC – To stream the samples from disk

4- IML.KSC – If you want to load into the chorus samples into your sample RAM

5- IML.PCG – Contains 3 programs and 2 combis. Programs load into USER-G bank. Combis load into USER-D bank.
