We wanted to clear up any confusion about which sounds to order and what format to choose when placing an order. It’s understandable with the large number of products and the many formats available, there is bound to be some confusion.

There are two main sections of our web site. The “Patch” Section and the “Sample City” Section.

Regarding our “Sound Patch Libraries”: You can NOT order any of our synthesizer “Sound Patch” collections unless you have the same synthesizer listed at our web site.

Using the Oberheim OB8 as an example: You need to own an Oberheim OB8 in order to buy our OB8 Patches.

So anything that’s labeled “patches” fits into this category. If your anywhere in the Roland, Korg, Yamaha, Kawai, Sequential or Oberheim section of our web site then anything we have for sale over there are considered “Patches”.

Note that you can still get some cool Oberheim OB8 sounds for your software or hardware sampler. You just need to go to the Sample City part of the site to find it. What we have done is “Digitally Sample” the best sounds from our OB8 patch collection and convert them into AIFF, WAV, Akai, Kontakt, and many other sample based formats. You can find all of that at our “Sample City” section of our web site. This is where you want to go if you are looking for new sounds for your hardware or software sampler.

Note that at the OB8 page it lists the sounds available in WAV file format. In this case, the WAV format means that instead of purchasing the data cassette tape which gets loaded though the OB8’s cassette port, you can purchase the WAV file. We have saved the cassette data as a WAV file so that it can be downloaded. Once you download it from us, just connect your computer audio card output to your synths cassette interface input and you can load in the sounds the same way you would from a cassette tape. The files will open in any program that plays .WAV files. This is true for any of the vintage synths that we sell patches for that load in sounds via the old style cassette interface. This includes instruments like the Roland Juno 106, Juno 60, Jupiter-6 Jupiter-8, Korg Poly 800, DW6000 and DW8000.

So just remember that “Patches” are for your synthesizer and “Samples” are for your digital sampler.

Before placing an order, please note the various “formats” available. There are several different formats, so take a look at the options available before ordering. Check out the page which fills you in on the different options. You can find it “OVER HERE”.

Also note that our online order form has a “comments” section, where you can list the synthesizer or sampler that your working with. Please include that along with any other info about your computer set up. That will help us avoid mistakes when processing your order and make sure that you get the right sounds.

If you need any more info, just Email Us  a brief description of your set up along with your questions.
