Decent Sampler Instruments

These are full Decent Sampler format sample sets, which take advantage of format-specific synthesis and UI capabilities.

Screenfield – based on a tuned and resynthesized recording of EMF from an LCD monitor recorded with pickup coils. Multisamples also available below as “LCD Screen.”

Multisamples

These are just mapped multisamples in SFZ and Decent Sampler formats, with no additional programming to take advantage of format-specific capabilities.

Note: sample sets uploaded before April 2023 contained only the SFZ format mapping file. If you already have these files and want to be able to load them into Decent Sampler without downloading the samples themselves again, you can download this zip file, which contains only the DS mapping files for the sample sets.
