March 2015
  • My how time flies... just about reached the speed of light here!
    We've had a few changes going on, but the latest is that we don't have very many OTP (One-Time Programmable) ROM Cards left, which are used mainly on the Korg side of things - like the M1, Wavestation, T-Series, M3r and such. For a very long time we've tried to hold the price of the M1 Factory sounds on ROM to $49.95, but have had to raise it to the $65.00 level of the other cards in that category. However, that does make it elligable for our FREE 1st Class Shipping! Thanks everyone, for all the positive feedback and support!


September 2011
  • Roland M-512E RAM MEMORY cards are BACK!!!
    We have had the M-512G RAM cards for a few years, but they are now gone. And, though they are great cards, there were still a few requests to get back the original, smaller sized M-512E cards that fit in your shirt pocket or small purse. Well, we now have those original E cards back in stock for a while. Though we held out as long as we could on the lower prices for the G cards we will be bringing the E card prices back up a bit at a time, but for now, the price is still well below the original MSRP list price of $128.95. Right now they are priced as follows;

    ◦ One Roland M-512E RAM Card $114.95
    ◦ Two or more Roland M-512E RAM Cards $110 ea

    These cards are compatible with Roland A-Series, GR-Series, D-Series, JV-Series, JD-Series, R-Series, VG-8, V-Drums TD-10 and more.
    Our part number is VCX512 - click here to order

    We also load our custom Voice Crystal sound banks for Roland synthesizers onto the M-512E RAM cards above for an additional $10 per bank. Please view the page linked below or contact us directly!

March 16th 2009
  • Some very sad news
    It is with a heavy heart, I must be the bearer of sad news.
    And, even though it is with much gladness that I was counted worthy
    of the friendship of this very good man, I must report my business partner
    and friend for 30 years, Paul Chasteen, is no longer with us.

    Journey on Paul... my dear, good friend!

June 2006
  • Korg Legacy Banks Released!
    Voice Crystal has just released 10 banks of our M1 & Wavestation patches in downloadable format for the award winning Korg Legacy Collection standalone & VST synthesizer software! [Full Info]
    If you are running any kind of PC or Mac music production software, you must check out the KORG Legacy Collection! Korg really did their homework when they produced the Legacy Collection. Both the M1 and Wavestation software renditions are wonderfully true to their hardware counterparts.


April 2006
  • Coming in May
    Voice Crystal will be supporting the KORG Legacy Collection VST software with 10 banks of M1 & Wavestation patches!


April 2005
  • Announcing the release of the new
    Larry Washington - BeatWorkz Sample Library!
  • Larry has spent 2 years perfecting this huge new meticulously refined, high quality library of sample CD's and MPC sound Library. He's also compiled prime cuts of all them onto the new BeatWorkz Collection release! This will provide you with a very wide range of styles in one CD.
    Find out more about this versatile performer/producer at beatworkzltd.com .
    Check out his calander of performance events and drum clinics as well as his new music CD release - Spiritual Conversations.


August 2003
  • Final stages are set for the release of the brand new
    Larry Washington - BeatWorkz Sample Library!
  • This is a killer selection of a wide range of different styles of up-to-date Beats & Loops, and single hit instruments by this versatile drummer, percussionist, songwriter, producer, composer. Larry Washington is a who's who in the music industry, having worked and performed with such artists as Warren G, David Benoit & Stevie Wonder, as well as performing and writing for the movie & television industry!


  • We're very close to having Roland M512 type RAM cards available!
  • These cards will be of a special design which won't require a battery, This is due to a new design which transfers the RAM data into an EEPROM built into the card each time it's powered down, as opposed to some cards which use a rechargeable battery which may truly only last for 10 years and then the whole card is unuseable. So we are real happy with this approach. You will 'never again' have to worry whether your battery will die in the middle of a gig or just after saving that great sound.

    For the following Synths:
    All Roland units requiring the Roland M-256E (or D) RAM;
    JD-800, JD-990, JV-80, JV-880, D-70, D-50, D-550, D-10, D-110, D-20,
    D-5, R-8 and any other unit calling for the M-256E (or D) cards and
    Peavey synth DPM-3 and A-Series effect units.
    
    All Roland units requiring the M-512E RAM;
    VG-8, SUPER JV1080, JV2080 etc.
    Also, we will be offering a special deal on these cards for customers who sign up for them. So, if you want a decent deal on these cards when we have them available... if you haven't already, click here: I need a 512K RAM Card!  and we'll put you on the list for them.

  October 2000
  • We've been working on our web pages heavily this last several months. You should begin to see some new visual changes, as well as some new products.

  • New Windows software to help with your Sample & Loop CD Ripping and tracking. ATRip, provides you with the means to easily seperate multiple samples from within individual CD tracks.
    Used in conjunction with your own CD ripper or the small & simple CDFS replacement Windows vxd driver, offered here for free download, you have a complete CD Audio-to-Wave extraction system.

  • New Phat Trax Audio CD from drummer - Tom Parham, is an all new Acoustic Drum Loops CD, including some beat tracks from Larry Washington.

May 2000
  • Our Roland M512 type RAM cards stock dwindled to zero earlier this year. However, due to the many requests we have been receiving for them (as well as our own desire to support the many synths which require these cards), we have looked into having them manufactured by another company. We found one!
  • These cards will be of a special design which won't require a battery, but only needs to be powered up once every 10 years (guaranteed) to refresh its memory, but would most likely hold its memory up to 50 years without powering up. This is due to a new design which transfers the RAM data into an EEPROM built into the card each time it's powered down, as opposed to some cards which use a rechargeable battery which may truly only last for 10 years and then the whole card is unuseable. So we are real happy with this approach. You will 'never again' have to worry whether your battery will die in the middle of a gig or just after saving that great sound.

    For the following Synths:
    All Roland units requiring the Roland M-256E (or D) RAM;
    JD-800, JD-990, JV-80, JV-880, D-70, D-50, D-550, D-10, D-110, D-20,
    D-5, R-8 and any other unit calling for the M-256E (or D) cards and
    Peavy synthesizers like the DPM-3.
    
    All Roland units requiring the M-512E RAM;
    VG-8, SUPER JV1080, JV2080 etc.
    Also, we will be offering a special deal on these cards for a  limited time, to make up for the NRE costs releated to this endeavor. So, if you want a decent deal on these cards when we have them available... if you haven't already, click here: I need a 512K RAM Card!  and we'll put you on the list for them.
  • New BLANK RAM Card Pricing

  • We just dropped our prices on the 256K PCMCIA Blank RAM cards for the Alesis Quadrasynth and Ensoniq KT series - to $128.95 $119.95
    Also, for the Ensoniq SQ-Series & KS-32 our 32K 160 Voice BLANK RAM Card has been dropped to $124.95 $109.95

We've been busy!

We don't have a lot to report for this year, as we've been real busy on several projects.
  • The SoundFont Banks Engine section has been going very well and we have some major enhancements in the works there. We added some 30 Loops & Patterns banks there a few months ago.
  •   Up and coming SoundFont banks in the 'Instruments' catagory will soon include the Steve Reid - Definitive Percussion Library, The Legacy - Definitive Analog Library, and several other sources of high quality banks. This takes time, so bear with us. We want to post the highest possible quality Instrument banks and will settle for nothing less.

October '98 

URGENT - MAJOR OEM's DISCONTINUE CARD MANUFACTURE 
LIMITED STOCK ONHAND!!
Unfortunately, we have some bad news. The ONLY manufacturers for Roland
and Korg RAM & ROM cards are discontinuing their manufacture of these
cards. They requested all companies which order these cards place a
final quota order. This we did in September. Once they are gone, that
will be the last availability of these cards worldwide.

This final quota may last us though the end of the year or possibly
slightly longer, depending on the orders we receive.

This will affect both our ROM Cards with Sounds and Blank RAM cards for
the following pieces of equipment;

ROLAND:
All Roland units requiring the Roland M-256E (or D) RAM;
JD-800, JD-990, JV-80, JV-880, D-70, D-50, D-550, D-10, D-110, D-20,
D-5, R-8 and any other unit calling for the M-256E (or D) cards.
Also Peavy synthesizers like the DPM-3.

All Roland units requiring the M-512E RAM;
VG-8, SUPER JV1080, JV2080 etc.


KORG:
All Korg units requiring the MCR-03 type RAM;
M1, M3R, Wavestation, DS-8, A Series, 707 etc.

Also works in the Waldorf Midrowave.

Also affected are the O3R, X3, I series and the O1W.


There may be some we have missed in the above lists so it would be wise
to check your manual.

You may go to our Soundcards page to view pricing and ROM voices information
for your keyboard or synthesizer module.

  • The new SoundFont Banks Engine with Digital Delivery is now online!

  • Listen to Real Audio demos of your favorite Instruments or Loops & Patterns Styles, then purchase & download them in minutes! These banks cover a wide variety of popular styles. They can be loaded into any Creative Awe32/64 and SoundBlaster Live card or OEM Awe32 equivalent. They are all just under 4 meg in size, so you will want to be sure you have 4 meg of RAM available. 

    Also for Mod Trackers and anyone using many of the new applications which import Wav samples and loops, you can use these banks too. By obtaining any number of applications like Awave or Vienna, you can extract the Loop or Instrument samples from the banks and use them in your favorite Digital Multi-tracker.

    We have designed a lossless compressor/archiver, which is a feature of our Digital Delivery System, which achieves almost a 50% reduction in SF2 file size. So downloading a 4 meg SoundFont bank will take on the average of only 10 minutes. The bank comes to you in a convenient self-extracting format. Just double-click on the file and extract it to your SoundFont directories... no other zipper applications to deal with! 


May '98 

  • Coming Soon - New SoundFont banks for Awe and the new SoundBlaster Live owners!

  • Hundred's (maybe thousands) of  SoundFont Banks. 
  • Coming Soon - Our Latest Version 4.0 GS General Midi 4 Meg Soundset... Now released to the public SoundFont format.

  • New from The Digital Kitchen => NOISE LOOPS II  Industrial Music Sampler - $49.95 
  • ===== New 50% Off Prices on Synth Sound Bank Disks ===== 
  • For all you Synthesizer Sound Enthusiasts and Professionals;
    We have just made a major pricing decision for all of our
    "Website Only" customers! We just dropped the prices on all our
    Diskette formatted Sound Banks by 50% off or better!!!!!
    
    Just look for the words "Web Special" on our Catalog
    or Synth Sounds pages.
    
    These sounds are the same ones used by many of the Professional
    performers you read about in our Artists Gallery.
    
    We just figured that since many of the dealers do not carry the older
    keyboards and primarily stock the sound cards and CD's rather than the
    diskette format banks, we might as well pass a savings onto you!
