soundarchive.co

This site is a digital vault for the sounds of vintage synthesizers, samplers and drum machines. As these instruments become increasingly rare, their patch and sample libraries are at risk of being lost forever. It's our goal to preserve these sounds (and the work of their designers) by creating a central archive where these sounds can be shared in a free and open format.

You can find both factory and aftermarket sound libraries for the instruments listed below, along with resources for use and repair. Please note that these sounds require the original hardware or a VST emulation to play.

This project is a labor of love and we don't solicit donations; if you'd like to support the archive, any assistance in finding missing sounds is most appreciated (see instrument pages for info). And come visit us on YouTube to hear the gear in action!
