New Virtual Instrument, Thales Model I, Inspired Computer Sounds Of The 60s

thales-model-1

Sampleism has introduced Thales Model I – a new virtual instrument for Windows VST (32bit & 64bit), Mac OS X VST and AU. The instrument features the sound generated by early sixties computers.

The sounds have been sourced in public domain films, which means that they are not clean: tape noises and background hisses are part of the sound. Acording to Parenteau,, Thales Model I’s tone is reminiscent of the Mellotron, as a result.

Here are the official audio demos:

There’s a free fully functional version of the plugin available at archive.org. The full version of the plugin is available for £6.99 at Sampleism.

  1. interesting, for those needing something different.
    also like there is a demo
    20 something meg
    going to give a try

  2. It definitely has a ’60s cinematic sound. I like it. It is screwy and intense. That background image is fornicating with my mental sockets, though. I may have to nuke it from orbit.
    Also I think it would be grammatically more proper to drop the ‘e’ and spell the name Samplism. But, it is a trade name so I suppose they can spell it any way they choose.
