Free LABS Obsolete Machines Virtual Instrument gives you sound of 1000 Oscillators Megadrone and More

Spitfire Audio has packed some of Look Mum No Computer’s finest ‘Obsolete Machines’ into a free LABS plugin

Spitfire Audio has released another in their series of LABS free virtual instruments, Obsolete Machines.

Is it ironic that Look Mum No Computer (Sam Battle) has worked with Spitfire Audio to pack sounds from some of his finest hand-built and modified machines into a free plugin that runs in your computer.

LABS range is complete with presets based on the unique instruments derived from the GAMEBOY Megamachine, Sega MegaDrive Synth, and the monstrous 1000 oscillator Megadrone. Battle’s hand-restored vintage Univox also gets a look-in, as does his Formant Bass.

The instrument was recorded on location at Battle’s This Museum is (Not) Obsolete facility in Kent, a place where his collection of electronic craziness is allowed to live and breathe. “It was just inside me – the idea of being in a dark museum,” he says. “I haven’t got a hoarding problem, now I’m a curator.”

The presets in the LABS instrument can be tweaked with Expression, Unison/Warp/Dynamics, LP/HPF Filter and Reverb controls, so you can dive in and start tweaking these (not) obsolete machines to taste.

Obsolete Machines runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats.

Obsolete Machines is available now as a free download on the Spitfire Audio website.
