Commodore 64 SID 8580 Basic Sample Pack (112 Samples)

I've made a C64 sample pack. To be precise, it's a sample pack, featuring every C and G note from C-2 to G 6 for the main basic waveforms of a Commodore 64 (8580 SID chip). The waveforms are triangle, sawtooth, pulse and noise. The duty cycle for the pulse wave was set to approximately 50%. The samples were recorded from C64 hardware directly using a custom designed interface.

Thanks for making the samples license-free! I'd still like to give attribution for using them. How would you prefer to be credited?

Hi SoftEgg, please feel free to attribute them to me (little-scale / Sebastian Tomczak) with a link to this blog (little-scale.blogspot.com). Thanks, that's very kind, and I am glad that you like the samples.

I've created programs with these(looped) samples for my MPC1000 running JJOSXL. You can find them here:

8580 PGMs for JJOSXL

please note the files have been renamed to under 16 characters and the files with release have been removed. I hope Sebastian is ok with this. There's a text file in the package with credit and link to this page.
