Farfisa Compact Duo Samples


Here are some sound samples taken from my compact duo. The Farfisa was fed into a Studiomaster mixing desk (to get suitable level - no eq) into a AWE32 soundcard. The samples are mono, 16bit at 44.1kHz, the only editing I've done is to top and tail dead space at the beginning and ends. I used CoolEdit v1.34 by David Johnston. Each of the following samples contains the notes C and F# over the keyboard ( 9 notes) they have not been normalised so you can see the relative levels. Besides it would take me too long to take and set up each note just so.
I've not zipped them either as I found the benefit wasn't worth the effort.
Remember that I had to wind the gain right up to get suitable levels and so the noise is quite significant. That ethereal space buzz can be clearly heard which may make sampling/looping difficult.
