Title: MAZ No.1 Instruments
Post by: louigi on September 13, 2019, 11:16:56
Back in the day there was this huge sample pack, which actually contained both wav files and xi instruments. Me and my friend actually purchased the CD and it transformed our tracking lives.

I still have the WAV folder, but as I wanted to track something, I realized that the XI folder was lost. And MAZ intruments website is no longer there, and I could not find any information on it anywhere, even Google searches come up largely unhelpful.

Has anyone still got this?

I will also search my folders for the XI folder, but I doubt I still have it. I will also hit my friend up with whom we made the original purchase back in the day and see if he still has the files.

By the way, as I have the WAV folder, I wonder if I can simply use the WAV to XI converter? I suspect this is what MAZ actually did. Because all the loop info is contained in wav files.

The WAV to XI is available here. I will try it out later.

Right, so if those folders actually contained the same instruments just in different formats, is there a point in retrieving the XI files? Most trackers these days should handle WAV loop points just fine. So unless there was more information (multisamples, envelopes) in those XI files, you probably won't need them.

I have my CD right here. And incredibly as it sounds, it appears that it is still readable.

I also have the Mazzive Injection: Tracked Worx CD, a compilation of modules.

Seems like there's hope after all. Anyways, I'm just going to ask you straight up: can you put it up for download? MAZ hasn't been contactable since years ago, and...well I can't even buy it.

Thanks!
