In 1980 I bought my first Fairlight (the very first sampler made) and was soon happily creating 1000’s of samples. Then a few years later Akai developed their incredibly cheap, compared to the Fairlight, range of samplers.

This prompted an incredible amount of people and companies trying to sell their own samples every music magazine was smothered with their ad’s each professing to be better than the rest so I created my own range. You can see my ad at the bottom of my “instruments” page.

Did you buy these samples?
