Almost ten years ago I released the first Memory Collection pack (samples from Public Domain movies).
At the time, I wanted to add some fun and different Holidays themed sounds to the samples I was offering. This idea to use old Public Domain movies was inspired by my love of old movies and an inclination to archive stuff. I also wanted to give a shot at audio restoration and I like sampler programs that map together a bunch of diverse sounds in order to create audio collages / montages.

The original MC pack 01 was a relatively small affair with 378 samples for suggested donationware price of $3.33. The price was a nod to the 33 1/3 rpm long playing record. I had no idea that it would grow to 9 Memory Collection packs! Some packs are themed, Horror, Sci-Fi, Crime and Holidays movies for instance.

Here are the current stats (updated with MC 10):
19,995 samples (9.98 GB) from 60 movies, 36 TV shows, 156 ads, 30 documentaries, 9 shorts and 1 serial.

All the individual packs are 50 % off and the complete bundle is an even better deal at $ 60 USD (58 % off).

Besides MC pack 10, I will release a new free pack for the 10th anniversary of the Memory Collection :!:

And a video using Caustic 3 from Single Cell Software, it features samples from the packs 05 to 08. In most, if not all, of the previous audio and video demos, I used only samples from the MC packs. This time they are combined with 2 of my other sample sets sprinkled with Caustic's synths to create more varied ambiances.

The 2 other sample sets used are the Prepared Rhodes and the Chromatic Hits.
See the timeline below for more details.

0.00 clip 1: Memory Collection 07, PeP (Prepared Electric Piano)
0.26 clip 2: Memory Collection 07, played real time
0.46 clip 3: Chromatic Hits demo (in PCMSynth) and Memory Collection 08
1.10 clip 4: FMSynth, Modular synth, Memory Collection 05 and 06, Chromatic Hits demo
1.32 clip 5: Memory Collection 06
1.57 clip 6: Memory Collection 07 and PeP (reprise)
2.12 clip 7: Memory Collection 05, Chromatic Hits demo, FMSynth, Modular synth

This screenshot, from one of the movies (1954), shows what was supposed to be a voice copier that operated with various bands like a vocoder!

MC 10 in final stage, it will have more than 5,000 samples (over 2GB)!

My creation process of a Memory Collection requires various steps that can be grouped in 3 stages.
- The first one is the selection of the video material, and then the first (rough) selection of the pieces
of the soundtracks that I find both interesting and usable.

- The second one is refining the audio selections and a first noise reduction/audio restoration process.

- The third one is the final selection/trimming of the samples and the final cleaning of the audio.

What do the man who asks no quarter and gives none to the forces of evil, the lady who liked loud chips, the planet Ophecious, the cleanest clean under the sun and phonographs have in common?

They're all featured in the Memory Collection 10 !!!
