Sample CD-ROM library in Roland S-770 and compatible format

This is an excellent third-party library.  Gigapack comes in 2 CD-ROMs, and they complement each other very well.

The first CD-ROM consists entirely of drums and loops - there are literally hundreds to choose from!  Many samples of classic kits and drum machines are also provided, so it's possible to make your own patches.  Everything from funk, rock, ballad, 808/909, analog, Simmons and much more, is offered on this CD.

The second CD-ROM is - to put it mildly - INCREDIBLE, and contains a huge amount of sounds - including Peter Siedlaczek's "Classical Choirs", classic, dance, analog and digital synthesizers, vocoders, organs, guitars, pianos, brass, orchestral sounds... everything!

This is really a thorough collection and it's guaranteed to keep you busy for a while.  Really useful for many genres.


In order to use these CD-ROM you will need a SCSI CD-ROM drive connected to your S-series sampler or XV-5080.  Keep in mind that certain sound data will need 32MB of memory, supported only by the S-760.  The S-770 and 750 have less.
