If old piano house/hardcore tracks make you feel warm and fuzzy inside then you should check out:
For each listed track there is a YouTube video and a MIDI file of the piano chords. Brings a tear to my eye.
Another 16 patches sampled from the Roland JX-3P.
The Akai AX80 has the best raw tone of any cheap analog polysynth I’ve played. It’s quite punchy and aggressive, great for bass and cutting leads.
Presenting The Minitaur Construction Kit. A collection of raw waveform samples taken from the Moog Minitaur synthesizer. The samples often have several velocity layers, this allows us to create richer (and possibly more analog sounding?) patches using EXS24. Included are 50 or so patches to get you started.
This library makes extensive use of EXS24′s layering and synthesis options and will only work with Logic 9.1 and higher.
The S612 was Akai’s first attempt at making a sampler and it’s a classic, everything that is run through it comes out sounding considerably richer, how many samplers can make that claim? It’s primitive in its functionality, but it has knobs, sliders and is as simple to use as they come.
For this collection, I used the S612 to sample an old Casio Casiotone 7000, my voice (I’ve never been so in tune), the Moog Minitaur and Guitar and Bass. The S612 was then recorded back into the computer.

A modularsamples.com visitor got in touch requesting some softer, mellow pads, which apparently there aren’t very many of on this site. So here are 9 easy going pads created using the Akai AX80, Korg DSS-1 and Roland JX3p.
The archive was created using the built in Mac OSX archiver, which can sometimes be problematic in Windows, so if you run into any problems let me know.-
