The most complete Vintage-Synth Sound-Library on WAV-CD-ROM, that existed so far!
Our two most popular AKAI CD-ROMs "Vintage Voltage ", Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 together on one CD-ROM = over 1500 WAV-Files! Individually optimized and extensively looped with the INFINITY-Software, featuring among others the sounds of:
Rolands SH 101, TB 303, MC 202, Juno 60, MKS-80, Jupiter 8 as well as Korgs Delta, Monopoly, Polysix, MS-20, then Oscar, Sixtrack, X-pander, Matrix 12, Prodigy, Wasp, CS-15, Kawai SX-350, Teisco 60F, Crumar, Studio Electronics SE-1, Deep Base 9 and many others all the way to Mellotron M-400-Sounds.
"Here everything is of high quality sound material. Whoever wants to start an analog sound library from scratch, should definitely look at this CD." - Keyboards about Vol. 1
"The existing material sounds absolutely professional and offers itself as an alternative to true, expensive and heavy analog Oldies - on the stage as well as in the studio." - Soundcheck about Vol. 1 + 2
"The Cosmic strings beamed us right off the sofa - Awsome! ... everything is very usable for Rave and Dance ... During listening to the Vintage Voltage 2 the grin never left the testers faces. Among the spacials are real perls. This CD-ROM should be listened to even if you believe, you have a complete analog aera in your house library." - Keyboards about Vol. 2
"Analog Age has the same meaning as the two legendary Vintage Voltage discs from the same company, one of the most complete collections of analog Dinosaurs. Matrix 12 and Juno 60 are known to probably the most, but the Oscar, Korg Delta or Teisco 60F? Everything is there, totaling over 1500 WAV files. A paradise for not only Techno fans." PC & Musik
First of all this CD-ROM contains the complete WAV-Version of our well known AKAI -CD- ROM "TRminator" with the amtlichen TR 808 / TR 909 sounds! Because of the unique TRminator-Concept your sound card can emulate the parameter settings of the Cult-Drumboxes. This way you have total control of each individual sound!
Furthermore you have access to additional processed, "wet only" and "amsterdamed"-Variations as well as TR-606 and CR-78 samples. This "plus"-Version contains also one complete TB303 baseline emulation-kit as well as 660 (!!) additional percussion samples! - Here some reviews (TR-minator / basic version):
"Everything you would expect is there ... even for owners of the original this CD can bring advantages. ... Whoever doesn't own a TR-Maschine receives here for unbelievably little money 95% of the TR's potential" - Keyboards
"With the TRminator it has been achieved, to update a very differenciated excerpt of the classical Roland Rhythm machines. The CD-ROM comes very close to the various sounds you can produce with the two originals. If someone doesn't want to or cannot buy the original, will find here a very useful tool. With a sampler and this CD-ROM you can almost live without the original TR-Machine." - Keys"
This new "Plus"-Version contains additional complete TB303 bassline emulation kits as well as 660 (!!!) additional drum & percussion samples of the Sampling Collection Series !
" Hidden behind the TRminator is a TR 808 / 909 emulator with the sounds of the legendary Roland drum machines. The Plus-Version of the 1995 released TRminator offers additional TB 303 sounds and 660 additional drum and percussion sounds. Sounds official - is official." PC & Musik - 10/99

This unique CD-ROM is based upon our legendary Original "Peter Siedlaczek´s Orchestra"-Library, that has been praised over and over worldwide by the trade press:
"A true masterpiece" Soundcheck
"5 Stars" "I was possessed right away, starting with the first, extremely good orchestra strikes (ff - as well as pp). It is really great. Very well recorded ... Never before was it possible, to get such samples from ordinary CDs. The presentation is immaculate. ... This library has earned its 5 Stars." SOUND ON SOUND
"All sounds of this CD have been played in carefully by a complete orchestra, to realize the true essence of the strings and the horns. This library was first recorded for the "onehundredthousand DM" Synclavier. You can therefore imagine, what quality you can expect ... The large selection of sounds, chords and forms of expression makes this sound library one of the most complete Orchestra libraries that was ever to be found on CD." FUTURE-MUSIC
"The quality of the recordings and the transfer into the sampler are perfect. All programs are homogenous and the loops are flawless. The multi samples are each arranged so that the space in between equals a small third. Often the individual style of playing includes fortissimo and pianissimo versions. The programs use the velocity to control the different dynamic levels. That is completely well done, sometimes a hard switch and sometimes sounds overlap or are overly faded. A special praise goes to the musicians though. The interplay and the intonation are of the best quality.
... With these sounds one has and outstanding orchestra at hand, that, assuming one has the right feel for it, can be used as such. The same goes for the group string sustains as well as the pizzicato and spicato strings, that are principally part of the "normal" sampler program, but here they are especially well done.
... The recordings are all very impressive. A large selection and partially as of now unheard sounds expand an existing sample collection tremendously." KEYS (about the AKAI version)
" This "Online Orchestra" rocks! Tuttis, Cluster and Hits, add strings and percussion, and all that sometimes across six oktaves at various dynamic levels. Incredibly well played, the loops fit .... Great!!" PC & Music - 10/99 (about the WAV version)
The ultimate, charts-oriented "fast fun"-Library with new, soon to be hits song elements for Rave & Jungle, Dance Floor & House.
With this you can produce professional dance hits on your PC quickly and easily. The majority of the tempi is between 130-160 bpm and the tracks consist of drum beats in several variations as well as matching bass & sequencer lines, gated chords, lead-synths & sung hook lines. Furthermore there are single drumsounds & multisamples, FX and more that are coordinated with the tracks. Well organized, color coded documentation.
The samples of this WAV-Version are identical to our well known Audio-CD "RAVE T.R.A.X." - here some reviews:
" ...Rave Trax is a major breath of fresh air. Its documentation and formatting are as close to perfect as we´ve seen. ... Overall, this is one of the user-frindliest audio discs we´ve laid hands on. ... At just 69 bucks, Rave Trax qualifies as a righteous bargain." US-Keyboards (zur Audio CD)
" ... Several sounds, that I have not found on other CDs for a long time - I finally found them on RAVE TRAX. Overall verdict: Very well done; really useful material" AMW-Journal about the Audio version
" " Rave Trax is a diverse and useful sound sound library with which you can quickly and simply make professional sounding productions. The value for the money with the Audio CD is more than good and the measly $39.- (old price - now E 19,95!!!) for the CD-ROM version incl. the Harddisk Recording Programm sounds like a print error, but isn't one !" Plug´n´ Play
" The tool set for Rave, House and Jungle. The sound selection is not as brilliant as with Vol. 4, but still very good. With 580 MB you can produce quickly some very nice dance pieces, the instruments offer everything that a Raver's heart craves for. Good !" PC & Musik about the WAV version
