Old school samples needed

I was listening to some of my favorite tracks, which include this one:


So, I know others here share that soft spot for Old School stuff. You know that tinge of 8bit samplers and analog waveforms. Now, what I'm looking for are sample packs that cover the classic synth sounds and some of the dirtier percussion. I'm all set on 808 and 909 stuff, but many of the synth sounds in that track above are in scope, as is all that good jungle and breakbeat stuff form the late 80s and early 90s. The stuff similar to Prodigy - Charlie.

Can someone please send me to outer space?

I found some nice ones in a sample pack on Beatport, but it was more old school house, and that isn't quite what I'm looking for, but it could be co-opted. Commercial sample packs would be ok, doesn't have to be free.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Re: Old school samples needed

you sure samples are what you need? Why not get a free 303 vst or really any vst like massive that has gritty bass lines. Like I think a lot of this is like acidic distorted saw waves, and break beats. Mix that with 909s and a few melodic cuts you will do good. I'd recommend something like FM8 or Monark. I think if you have a vst like monark you can make most of those 90s jungle, acid, and underground techno sounds.

Sample packs idk prime loops probably has something, but I think you'd be better off with a vst.

Also maybe just making like some synth metallic hats, and deep sub kicks with some vst might also be helpful.

If that's the kind of thing you're looking for at least. One of the few packs I've gone back and back to over the years. Going to grab it again now actually.

Yeah, I get you. And I have and use all of the above, but for several reasons I'd like to complement that with samples. Primarily to feed it into hardware as sample sets.

Re: Old school samples needed

I thought I posted this idea...but I have just been recording things off youtube...in some cases playing it on my ipad and recording from the microphone noise and all. Works fine for one shots and gives that dirty vibe.

Hey there, maybe this can be useful for you, it's a sample pack I did to faithfully recreate the sound of breakbeats that made old school HipHop so great. It sounds good to me, if you want to give it a chance here's the preview.


Btw, the sample pack is free
