Legowelt EMU Vintage Pro Synthesizer Sample Pack

375 samples in 16 bit wav format programmed by Legowelt on this 2002 digital american interdimensional space synthesizer – all free for you to use in your sampler, DAW, electribe Volca Sampler Microsampler MPC Octatrack Renoiz Roland SP EMAX Ensoniq ASR EPS16 Mirage OP-1 Commodore Amiga Soundblaster Ableton Simpler Reason whatever u use!!!

Its been a while since a Legowelt Sample pack (2015???) So lets splash out on an obscure exotic dreamy digital synth nobody gives a &*** about

The Vintage Pro is a 2002 digital synthesizer from EMU Inc. A spiritual successor to the early 90s EMU vintage Keys synthesizer – The VINTAGE PRO uses the EMU PROTEUS 1000 class synth engine. At that time EMU released a number of synths using this engine – the EMU MO PHATT aimed at hiphop genres, the EMU ORBIT for dance sounds the EMU Carnival for latin music, PLANET EARTH for world music, VIRTUOSO 2000 for classical music etc. They are all the same synths but use different waveforms to cater for the characteristics of the desired music style. The VINTAGE PRO was directed at emulating vintage 60s/70s/80s keyboards and synthesizers.

Some people, mostly wankers, discard these things as boring sample players or ‘ROMPLERS’. These people think romplers are not real synths but that is just because they are too lazy to dive into menu screens or mask their lack of synthesis knowledge by only using synths where they can twiddle the filter cutoff knob so they get instant gratification.

some interesting LFO waveforms in the modulation department – a HEMI QUAVER wave???

The Vintage PRO is a gateway to an adventerous psychedelic plain of synthesis – a DEEP synthesizer – with 4 “oscillators”, 21 filter models, virtual modular patch cords with crazy modulations routings and more.

The sound is a bit snappy and thin yet delicate and sophisticated – diaphanous, a fancy word for translucent – would be a better description. Like aquarel water paint mixed with pencil crayons it can be a fertile and extremely colorful ingredient in your music.

emu vintage pro the choice for winos

Editing/Programming is done on a little LCD screen affair, its manageable but even the most hardcore digital programmer fetishist like me might find it a bit cumbersome – mainly because of its ‘modular’ patch cord system (imagine a modular system controlled by a little LCD screen) The best way to go about is selecting a nice patch as a basis and shape the sound from there. All the EMU proteus 1000 class synths have a rather intriguing sound randomizer which will create a sound for you ‘ex nihilo’ – giving the synth an almost delphic oracle-esque quality.

As you might see this synthesizer came in 19″ rack format, there is however an extremely rare keyboard version called the VK-6.

Some more random trivia: The first and second Franz Falckehaus albums were made entirely on this thing sequenced by an Electribe ES-1

Check out some sounds from this sample pack through some echo FX:

These samples are free to use, if you make a milllion$$$$$ hit with it you can always send me some or buy me a Mercedes.

Enya‘s Raving Castle

A little excerpt from the live show in Los Angeles last Saturday. Not the most original sample thrown in there but I couldn’t resist (check this movie of her playing it on a Juno 60) Ofcourse this can’t be ever released – so see it as an illegitimate remix…Grab it while its still there, the download function is on 8)

Legendary Freaks In The Trash Of Time
se p

This friday 3 November from 18:00 till 21:00 I will do an instore gig at Clone Records in Rotterdam for the releaseparty of my new album ‘Legendary Freaks In The Trash Of Time’ (audio snippets here). My homeboys Antenna & Steve Motto will do some DJ sets. Come and say hello, drink something, listen and buy some records in an idyllic enviroment, meet weird mentally sophisticated people & freaks and have a good time! Its free ofcourse! Adress is Raamportstraat 12 very close to the Central Station. More info here


I recently found this again somewhere on my server -> This is a ramshackled – PC only – VST plugin I made around 2004 in synthedit. Very much aimed at 70s style BBC radiophonic workshop Hammer Horror soundtrack and avant garde ‘early electronic music’ sounds. Good for evolving weird sounds with lots of unexpected artefacts.

Because of its amateuristic gimcracked nature it has some ‘issues’ which are easily workable:

– Only the left output works so you got to set your DAW or mixer channel to mono

If the delay amt. (Delay amount) is zero there is no sound, so it should always be on, if you don’t want to have the delay effect just put the modulation and feedback at 0.

-The special effect overides the main volume control for some reason.

It will run any PC with a 32bit VST host/DAW even a windowsXP or things before that – if you want to run it quick get the free SAVI host (savihostx86.zip 32 bit) -> run it and select the ‘AMAZON5.dll” file when it asks what VST you want to run (this on a XP I have no idea how that stuff works on modern Windows but I am sure it will work too)

Despite its shoddy appearance and operation it can make some interesting sounds, check out these demos made by Jorge Velez:

The Inhabitant

Sun Fish

Lost Bus Stop

Windy Animal Farm

Seacucumber Storm

Mating Call Of A Disturbed Emo

Picnic With Svankmaier

ofcourse its all free for you -> Download it here and start tweaking those sliders!!!
