I'd start by getting your hands on mp3s of tracks with long instrumental breaks (mo-town are great for that)

I use an old plug-in called iZotope Vinyl to degrade the loops I extract to sound older and more analog, then filter eq it to tweak the sound.

ok good advice but i was thinking more along, sample packs for kontakt, old synths or soft synths that emulate the sounds im after

i can get 909 drums etc, but its the sounds im struggling with everything is so digital and clean

aahhhh I get you-

Have you ever tried out "Vintage Organs" by Native Instruments?

I've compared them directly to a real Baldwin and the sound is tigghttt



EDIT: "Scarbee" has a sample pack called "Vintage Keys" too but I've never tried it out.

i have komplete and that has some vintage organs in it,

but i would need more than just organ sounds really, was thinking about trying to get some old EMU synth sounds
maybe for kontakt, rather than buy any vst just try to get new libraries and patchs,

anyone recommend any for 90's retro house ?

i feel very good about my pruchase on Komplete 8 now !! not just because of danny j lewis comments but the damn thing is always freezing
i cant even have 2 instances of kontakt open without it freezing them it totally locks up ableton

crash reports sent to both companies !!

Korg M1 and sampling old 90's tunes will help get you what you are after

any piano will do

808 is good - it has a few sounds which the 909 doesn't

and you got to sneak a mini moog and tb303 in there

roland jupiter samples or you can use prophet from NI

job done

but why?
