These CD's ( #3 just has been released) are from the series "Sythesizer von Gestern" (Vintage 
Synthesizers) from Mathias Becker/Klaus Stuehlen and Oscar Sala (on #3). The Chroma Sounds are 
on the first CD but don't show all the power of the Chroma (is it possible on a single track?) 
But: The tracks are a pretty good selection of standard sounds of the presented synths and 
have good sound-quality.

My intension was to put samples of single notes using Chroma-Sounds onto a ftp-site. I found 
the Music Machines site as a possibility, but looking at the really nice www-page 
( shows some space for samples, but there are no 
samples ...

To Mike: How are youre plans providing samples of the named synths?
