Welcome to Fairlight Kontakt R3 This library took many years to develop and comes loaded with a lifetime of musical resources. The price is historically low but the quality is astounding.
Categories & demos The entire Lost In The Fairlight Maze collection is included in Fairlight Kontakt R3. Each bank is like a small library of its own and these can also be purchased separately.
The Mallet And Chime Hallway The early Fairlight and Synclavier mallet sounds are wonderful to play due to their rich character. We built the patches on our own recordings of these high end, legacy sampling instruments.
The Flutarian Hills A journey through wind instruments taking you all the way to Mike Oldfield’s legendary Killing Fields flute patch.
Inside Synth City You know what people say about their synthesizers? “Oh that one. I only use it for one sound!”. Imagine if someone crazy enough to collect just about all samplers and synthesizers worked days and nights just to pick, edit, and create “killer” sounds like that. That’s our mission.
Outside Synth City Some of the best sounds ever heard. The pad sound “Think JD-990 And Beyond” alone will probably keep you playing. A good start!
The Gates Of Sararr The history of Sararr is cool. Sarah is her real name and she was asked to sing in a synthy and breathy kind of way. The result after sampling was fantastic and a signature Fairlight sound was born. This is a collection of Sararr based sounds and other voice sounds are here too.
Beat Dis Hills Located in the suburbs of acid rain and constant dusk, the “Beat Dis” hills gives you six complete drumkit layouts. You will recognize some toms from a certain TV classic, so prepare to take out the pink shirt, the white trousers and the yellow shoes while getting seated in the Ferarri replica.
The Sea Of Bass Fishing for bass? Other species are Art Of Noise, Scritti Politti and Yello. They all went diving deep into the lows around here. Korg PE-1000 & Arp 2600 sounds are here too.
Birdland Airport Analog brass and even acoustic recordings of the lower kind of bitrate. Saxophones and trumpets of the less authentic variety. The dawning of the sample. Brass falls. Ensembles. Sampling gone vintage. It sounds more or less like E-mu Proteus/1 around these streets, but the Fairlight did that already by 1980.
A Maze In Strings From the early days of sampling. Pet Shop Boys classic “West End Girls” gives ideas on what to expect. Cellos, violas, full orchestras and synth strings from Oberheim Matrix 12 and Roland JX-8P.
Synthwave Factory 101 A small but genuine and fascinating toolkit for synthwave / real 80s fascination deluxe. Divided into five subfolders; Bass, Drums, Fairlight Voices, Hits and Polysynths. The basses are Respectable. The drums are a machinery. The voices are unreal. The hits mean business. The synths are lovely too.
Hit Keys If you’ve ever been fascinated by Yazoo, Depeche Mode, Propaganda, Tina Turner, the musical Chess or the extremely expensive Synclavier system, the fantastic Oberheim Matrix 12, the stunning CMI, the jaw-dropping Yamaha DX1 or so… this little package is mindblowing. Prepare for becoming transformed and time-warped into an era where only high end production studios could create classic albums using the old extreme sampler systems.
The Old Library Take a peek inside the vintage archives, where beautiful string and choir patches are mixed with strictly lofi ones, marimbas & machines and a rich variety of drum machine sounds. This package leans a lot to the samply kind of sound, raw and reminiscent of ‘Beatbox’. A not at all multisampled Yamaha CP80 is quite enjoyable too, recorded over 30 years ago.
Sublime ChimesStunning bells and pads as well as a few odd spices. A well blended mixture of Wolfgang Palm’s digital wavetable synthesizer – the PPG, D-50, DX7, JX-8P, Synclavier and Fairlight sounds.
