I'm using the samples for a few days now, but already had a lot of fun with them! I really like the square synth (Super Mario!), strings, drums and bass. The pedal delay piano is also very good. Brings back a lot of Chrono Trigger memories. I can recommend this to every video game music lover.
I'm a film composer and starting to get into video game music and really wanted to get some 16-bit sounds for that authentic NES sound. This library is fantastic. Gives me a very good palette to start working on 16-bit music, so I'm not spending time creating sounds. Got at a fantastic price as a bundle with the Beard Blade Toolkit. Highly recommend!
It sounds good and is useful!
Great toolkit with an easy to use interface. Blends also excellent with the Beard Blade Toolkit and it's still compatible with modern sounding libraries. Nice!
Steven captures the very essence of video-games soundtracks on his Virtual Instruments.
Great tool for all whom want to become a 16bit composer. Great work!!
