I found an online museum of vintage electronic toys : http://www.miniorgan.com/home.php

I see they want money for the sample pack, but given how rare these toy keyboards and noise makers are, I can see the reason in the high price.

This thread is absolutely fantastic. As somebody who loves tracking and is always starved for good samples i salute you all.

NOAA underwater recordings of natural, man-made and mystery sounds. Great ambiance.

Awesome, added! Thanks!

I found the korg minipops (a rare vintage drum machine, the one from j.m. jarre's oxygene)  sampled in handy zip form

This seems to be a copy of the MP-7 pack available at kb6, albeit an older version. I recommend getting the kb6 version (has three additional bongo samples).

Keep digging, everyone! smile

I donated to KB6 and I can assert that I will never ever need another drum machine sample in my life tongue

I didn't realize that machine was on KB6 (although I guess I should've)...but TBH I really only dled for the guiro.

one of these days I'll get lucky and post something useful. smile

Seb, these are cheesy as hell but I'm going to have so much fun with these in Piggy tracker. Huge thanks!

Also thanks for the tip re KB6 - never heard of that site before, but I've donated them some cash and I look forward to drowning in drum machine samples.

Again, many thanks for your contributions here. Added!

I've edited the first post so samples for consoles and old comps are now sorted by system, and made an extra section for vintage synths. I'll probably have to do a complete do-over once the list gets any bigger.

Little gem I found:
http://arcadearchive.com/ has recordings of vintage arcade machines, such as the infamous Zoltan fortune-telling cabinet.

This is one of my favourite sites on the internet, something I found by accident digging around a while back looking for some information. Some absolute genius has sampled as many announcements (and brilliant other noises like ticket barriers) from Japanese train stations as possible and uploaded them for free here. They actually make really good listening on their own, though of course are ripe for sampling...

this IS gold!!!! here an english version for convenience
EDIT: read this first though...
