DYNACORD ADS Sample Library

This one in via swissdoc

"On we started an initiative to preserve the DYNACORD ADS Sample Library by reading a bunch of old floppy disks and converting data in HFE format to be used by HxC floppy emulator. It is quite a decent coverage of the library as availble in 1989, but not complete.

Samples can be used in any sampler by manual conversion. Please see the readme.txt [below] for a bit more info.

Here you will find the data"

P.S. Apparently this is the first ADS featuring on the site. There were a few verstions of the ADD posted here.


IMG files can be written to real floppy disks with Omniflop, which supports the ADS data structure.
HFE files are to be used with the HxC floppy emulator.

For users of softsamplers etc.: IMG files can be imported into Audacity in RAW Mode 16-Bit (use Big Endian format), sample data can then be used manually

Some disks had read errors, they are marked with err in the filename.
Some disks had been marked "wrong disk", so they may not load properly as part of a pair.
