Description: Sci-fi analog keyboard sounds designed for use with SampleTank 4
Expand your sound collection with two iconic synthesizers from ancient times to create sounds that are far from the usual. Spaceport’s new collection # 77 welcomes two familiar keyboard characters, OB-1 and CP-30, to give your tracks a sci-fi 70s and 80s flavor.
Designed for use with SampleTank 4 v4.0.9

Newly recorded and programmed to take full advantage of all the features of SampleTank 4’s new sound engine, this expansion library adds 100 new instrument presets and 3.9 GB of samples covering two classic analog keyboards. A great complement to both the modern synth sounds and classic electric piano sounds already in SampleTank 4’s library, these new sounds further expand your sonic library.
The Oberheim OB-1 is an early monophonic analog synthesizer released in 1978 with two discrete oscillators and suboscillators, along with a noise generator. A discrete lowpass filter can be either 12dB or 24dB per octave, for both a classic Oberheim 2-pole sound and the legendary Minimoog 4-pole sound. Notable users of the OB-1 were the composer and musician Vince Clarke and the bands Tangerine Dream, Rush, and The Grid.
The Yamaha CP-30 is an electronic piano from 1976 that uses analog synthesis sound generation. The CP-30 has a Decay control knob that can be used to simultaneously adjust attack and decay parameters not unlike those of a regular synthesizer’s ADSR envelope. Two tone-generation systems, each with independent decay control, let users like Herbie Hancock, Fleetwood Mac and The Cars conjure up unique sounds using modern synthesizer techniques.
The combination of the Yamaha CP-30 and Oberheim OB-1 creates wonderfully spacious and timeless tonal possibilities. Electric piano, clavichord and harpsichord timbres from the CP-30 combine with the lush discrete analog oscillators and filters of the OB-1 layered in as dimensional pads and evolving sweeps. Further filtering from SampleTank 4’s analog modeled and modern digital filters extend the color palette even further. Then add in the deep effects rack power of SampleTank 4 for expansive reverbs and otherworldly chorus ensemble and phasing effects along with audiophile EQ and compression for a high-end cinematic sound worthy of the biggest blockbuster sci-fi feature films.
