Soundtrack Loops introduces C64 8-Bit Adventure Loops of the ‘Commodordian’

Jason Donnelly of Soundtrack Loops let us know about their latest sound library, C64 8 Bit Adventure, which features sounds of the Commodordian.

The Commodordian is a unique 8-bit Commodore 64 accordion:

What they say about the sound library:

“Here we have C64 8-Bit Adventure, a collection of loops, one shots and more, all generated by a bespoke musical instrument that Linus has dubbed the Commodordian—an ‘accordion’ comprising two C64 computers that bookend a real, functional bellows system, constructed of an origami-like assembly of 5.25” paper floppy disc casings!

This instrument sets C64 8-Bit Adventure apart—the bellows is actually an electro-mechanical modulator that changes the sound as it’s being played.

So here, in a package containing 82 loops (distributed across 10 different theme kits), 168 delightful one shots, 9 Kontakt .nki files, and an Ableton Drum Rack, we have the sound of the Commodordian—an one-off, genius-grade, mad scientist-level instrument that captures the classic sounds of the Commodore 64 computer in all its 8-bit glory, and with added organic modulations that go far beyond typical circuit bending exercises, and into some truly esoteric and fun places.”

C64 8 Bit Adventure is available now for $25
