The Electronic Garden's ARP Collection
All-out analog authenticity for Kontakt 2 & 3 and Reason 4's NN-XT and Combinator samplers
"The Arp collection is very authentic with a plethora of useful patches. I have been waiting for a top notch Arp sample library that sounds like the real deal. I am glad to finally have a beautiful collection of go to Arp sounds that I can use in my productions."
I've collected a number of vintage synthesizers here at The Electronic Garden and the ARP instruments are among my favorites. ARP existed to give Moog a run for his money with affordable, stable and powerful synthesizers, string machines and even a stand alone sequencer. Even now, these instruments perform surprisingly well, and have become sought-after on the secondhand market, fetching ridiculously high prices. I've seen ARP 2600s going for six grand in recent months. Wow!
You don't have to stump up that kind of moolah to get your hands on that oh-so-desirable retro sound, however. I have sampled my entire ARP Collection and rolled the results into patches for Native Instruments' Kontakt and Reason 4's NN-XT samplers. Over 700 samples have been meticulously looped and patched into 128 patches for your sampler. There are basses, leads, special effects, pads, and percussion, all bursting with that classic analog sound. I've even mapped edited and looped raw waveforms so that you can infuse a bit of that legendary ARP sound into your own patch creations.
For this collection, I drew upon four ARP instruments:

* SFZ patches are raw, looped and mapped multi-sampled sets and do not offer the same complexity of programming found on the other sets. SFZ is available for free on request for purchasers of the other two formats and is not sold separately. However, you will achieve the same results if you convert the patches yourself in a program such as Extreme Sample Converter.
