A classic ARP mono-synth, meticulously multi-sampled.

Being an entry-level synthesizer from the 70s, the ARP AXXE is as straightforward as it gets: Single oscillator, one envelope generator, a simple low-pass filter, white noise generator, pwm... However, it still manages to achieve that delightfully gnarly ARP sound that's so unique to everything this little New England-based synth manufacturer put together.

This pack of carefully multi-sampled AXXE patches is a tribute to this simple synth's greatness and contains tons of musical and useful sounds that are just as relevant today as they were back when this little synth hit store shelves. From solid basses to quirky plucks, from noise crashes to surprisingly competent synth drums - this pack is sure to inspire you.

No corners were cut during the sampling process and every single patch was recorded one semitone at a time for consistent timbre and maximum authenticity. Additionally, each note was tuned individually to make sure this pack can work along all your other instruments and samples.

Recorded with Rheingold music cables and high-end Antelope Audio converters, these samples are pristine and endlessly tweakable. To make sure that this pack is useful for everyone, I'm offering you these patches in a whole load of different formats so that you can bring them into your favorite sampler. Even hardware workstations are accounted for with a full MPC Expansion and files for various KORG machines.
