ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Super Audio Cart faithfully reproduces the sound of seven classic video game systems whose cultural legacy and influence has lasted far beyond their commercial lifespans. When the library was conceived, our goal was superb authenticity by deep-sampling every sound chip. But over time, we expanded our vision to shatter the limitations of the original systems and allow for near-infinite sound design possibilities.

The final version of Super Audio Cart is the culmination of 2+ years of intense research, development, and sound design. With a massive 5,500+ samples meticulously recorded, edited, and looped, we’ve thoroughly captured the raw capabilities of each game system. These sounds are loaded into a custom Kontakt Player engine packed with cutting-edge features, along with 1,000+ factory snapshots to inspire both retro music, chiptunes, and modern genres.

To create this instrument, everyone involved needed a passion and deep connection to both video games and their music. That’s why we collaborated with OverClocked ReMix, a website and community dedicated to the appreciation of game music. To us, Super Audio Cart represents the ultimate tribute to that art form, and we know that it will find a place in your music for many years to come!

"Super Audio Cart is without doubt the best plugin for all your chiptune needs, it's got the lot and they're all glorious! Having all these authentic sounds in one place is the best idea since someone said, 'Let's put a rap in Donkey Kong' ... oh wait." - Grant Kirkhope (Donkey Kong 64, GoldenEye, Banjo-Kazooie, Civilization: Beyond Earth)

"Super Audio Cart is so much fun, and absolutely spot-on for simulating retro game sounds. This is absolutely a fantastic sample library for all game music fans." - Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Xenogears)

"It's extremely convenient to be able to create arrangements with such diverse sounds so quickly, just using MIDI. Of course, Super Audio Cart isn't just for 'retro' sounds - it's also very useful for modern music as well." - Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, ActRaiser, Revenge of Shinobi, Etrian Odyssey)

Press Quotes

"Super Audio Cart fills a niche in my chiptune arsenal that has been sorely lacking. The SNES-style patches sound so authentic, and the multi-chip patches bring usability and versatility I haven't seen in a chiptune instrument before." - Danny Baranowsky (Crypt of the NecroDancer, Binding of Isaac, Super Meat Boy)

"From funky Sega instrumentalism and bouncy Nintendo oscillations to the fabulously primitive noises of the 2600 and characterful waves of the C64, Super Audio Cart is a vast toybox of stackable synth sounds, faux instruments, drum kits (lots of drum kits!) and FX, all easily adapted to modern contexts thanks to the deep onboard processing." - Computer Music (Rating 9/10)
