Free Multisample: littleBits Synth Kit Sawtooth and Square Wave (Kontakt, Ableton, & SFZ)

The littleBits Korg Synth Kit sounds great, but it’s exceedingly hard to use for musical purposes because its oscillators don’t stay in tune for more than a few minutes at a time. After a few frustrating afternoons of trying to record a synth lead with this thing, I decided the only way that I would be able to use it is if I created a multisample out of it.

Here’s what the waveforms look like:

littleBits Square Wave C4
littleBits Synth Kit Square Wave
littleBits Saw Wave C4
littleBits Synth Kit Sawtooth Wave

So…after painstakingly tuning each one, I sampled each note over six octaves, set loop points, then turned it into a multisample.

Features:

  • Three formats: SFZ, Native Instruments Kontakt 5.1, and Ableton Live 9.1 (Simpler).
  • Recorded in 96khz, 16-bit using a high-end audio interface
  • Seemless waveform looping
  • Recorded without lowpass filter (add your own software filters within Ableton, SFZ plugin, or Native Instruments Kontakt)
  • Control envelope within SFZ, Ableton or Native Instruments Kontakt
  • Both littleBits waveforms: sawtooth and square wave
  • 5+ octaves
  • Allows for polyphony (which the actual synth kit does not)
  • Responds to velocity (which the actual synth kit does not)
  • Ableton instrument responds to pitch bend and mod wheel (which actual synth kit does not)

If you make a cool track using these samples, post it in the comments here!

Enjoy!
