Five months in the making, my new Refill “Fairlight CMI Legacy” is now available from PowerFX.com. All music examples and sound programming by Patrick Fridh Aka Bitley™. This library collects an awesome amount of ultra clean recordings of the original sounds from the Fairlight CMI II, the world’s first real sampling based workstation as premiered some time before 1980. And this entire Reason 4 library costs much less than 64 kilobytes of memory did in 1980.
The ReFill contains somewhat more than that, too. It carries 644 Megabyte of samples. You get over 2000 sounds in all, including all of the Fairlight’s 33 precious 8 inch factory discs. To celebrate the Fairlight feel, all new samples are labeled and arranged in virtual 8 inch disks as well.
Unfortunately, they could not simulate the loading time, noise and intermettent failures of the original disk drives. You will have to live with that!
