Spitfire Audio launch LABS Obsolete Machines

Collaboration with Look Mum No Computer

Spitfire Audio LABS Obsolete Machines Look Mum No Computer free sample library virtual instrument

Obsolete Machines is the latest release in Spitfire Audio’s LABS series, a collection of sample libraries and virtual instruments that are free for anyone to download. This latest offering contains a range of sounds captured from experimental music machines owned by Sam Battle (AKA Look Mum No Computer).

Recorded at Sam’s museum in Kent, UK, the library’s sounds have been created using a collection of custom hand-built electronic instruments such as a Gameboy Megamachine, Sega MegaDrive Synth, and an epic 1000-oscillator Megadrone.

An i1 control within the plug-in provides control over an Expression (volume) parameter, whilst i2 offers a combined Unison, Warp and Dynamics control. Low- or high-pass filtering is provided by an O1 control, and finally, O2 offers users access to a built-in reverb effect.

We spoke to Sam Battle for our SOS Electronic Music Podcast in October 2021, click here to take a listen.


As with all of the LABS series offerings, Obsolete Machines is presented in Spitfire’s own plug-in. VST2, VST3, AAX and AU versions are provided, with support for macOS X 10.13 to macOS 11, as well as Windows 7, 8 and 10 (latest Service Pack).
