Hardball Records has released a free sound bank, Hoover Sound Bank, that features sounds of the classic Roland Alpha Juno 2 synthesizer:
This is exactly the same synthesizer that created the original Hoover sound, patch called “What The”, originally created by Eric Persing for Roland Alpha Juno. Juno 2 is just an upgraded version of Roland Alpha Juno, thus we have the original Hoover sound. Additionally, I have sampled couple of bass sounds, which somebody may find useful.
As usually, each sound is a separate bank for NI Kontakt and EXS-24 samplers.
Each sample was recorded thru the Pro Tools HD from Roland Alpha Juno 2,
without any effects or processing, just clean original synth sound!
All samples are 44.1 kHz, 24 bit, Stereo WAV files.
Interesting tidbit about Eric Persing – who’s now the guru behind Spectrasonics.
The audio demo, above, is made using only the synth sounds in this sound bank, plus drums.
You can download the Hoover Sound Bank from the Hardball Records site.
