LITFM 1 – 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.

LITFM 2 – The Flutarian Hills

This demo combines LITFM 2 with the entire Fairlight Kontakt R3 library

A journey through wind instruments taking you all the way to our new emulation of Mike Oldfield’s legendary Killing Fields flute patch from Fairlight CMI.

LITFM 3 – Inside Synth City

You know how people say about some 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. Is exactly what we do.

LITFM 4 – Outside Synth City

Some of the best sounds ever heard for like nothing. It’s happening. The pad sound “Think JD-990 And Beyond” alone will probably keep you playing for hours. And that’s just a start.

LITFM 5 – The Gates Of Sararr

The history of Fairlight’s SARARR, or in some versions, ARR1 sound, is a very cool one. In short, Sara was her real name and she was asked to sing in a “synthy” kind of way. The result after sampling was fantastic. The signature Fairlight sound was born. We sampled the sample and looped the loop a number of times and with lots of different settings. Other voice sounds are in here too. And other sound types as well.

LITFM 6 – Beat Dis Hills

Located in the suburbs of acid rain and constant dusk, the “Beat Dis” hills allows you to find six complete drumkit layouts as well as an extra Fairlight CMI noise. 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 that dressed up Ford, looking exactly like a black Ferarri. “Beat Dis”, as well, is a very classic track so look it up if the name doesn’t ring a bell.

LITFM 7 – The Sea Of Bass

If you are fishing for bass, this is just the sea for you. Other famous species like the Art Of Noise, Scritti Politti and Yello all went diving around here as well, and if you want some PE-1000 or Arp 2600 inspiration to go with the Fairlight ferry at eight servings, jump on board and we will go deep into the lows.

LITFM 8 – Birdland Airport

That’z A Wine Ull! Ok, word play, all over town this season. But you wouldn’t listen to Reason! Ok par-de-ner; Birdie Num num – dig it all; 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 it’s purdy awesome to know that the Fairlight CMI was ten years earlier and doing all that already by 1980. These are the bombs.

LITFM 9 – A Maze In Strings

From the early days of sampling, these string sounds all have an electronic edge to them. If you ever loved the pad in Pet Shop Boys’ all time classic “West End Girls” that’s the kind of sound quality you can expect from this bank. The collection includes cellos, violas, full orchestras and a few synth strings as well, notably some from the venerable and very tough one to carry around, Oberheim Matrix 12.

LITFM 10 – Synthwave Factory 101

A small but genuine and fascinating toolkit for synthwave / real 1980s 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 UNREALly good! The hits are the business! The synths… oh yes, they are lovely too. We are looking forward to hearing what you’ll cook up using this kit!

LITFM 11 – Bitley’s Hit Keys

If you’ve ever been fascinated by Yaz / Yazoo, Depeche Mode, Propaganda, Tina Turner, the musical called Chess (which was penned by Bjorn and Benny from Abba) – or simply by the extremely expensive Synclavier system, the fantastic Oberheim Matrix 12, the stunning Fairlight CMI, the jaw-dropping Yamaha DX1 or so… this little neat package is going to blow your mind. Not only are you getting insanely good patches, you are actually becoming transformed and time-warped into the era where production studios were making those classic albums, building music with these high end synthesizer & sampler systems. You are set for entry on the very best day where the crew has set the equipment up for you. They brought the best sounds. Let’s say it again; this package. It is mind blowing.

LITFM 12 – The Old Library

An icy journey into the Arty Fairlight archives, combining beautiful string and choir patches with strictly lofi ones – marimbas & machines – as well as a rich variety of drum machine sounds. This package leans a lot towards the samply kind of sound, a bit raw and similar to Art Of Noise’s ‘Beatbox’. The simple Yamaha CP80 sample is actually quite enjoyable even though it was recorded over 30 years ago.

LITFM 13 – Sublime Chimes

Utterly beautiful bells and pads as well as a few odd and fun things to spice things up a little. This pack contains a well blended mixture of Wolfgang Palm’s digital wavetable synthesizer – the PPG, D-50, DX7, JX-8P, Synclavier and Fairlight sounds.
