Fairlight CMI IIX Archive

The Fairlight CMI IIx needs no introduction to music sampler enthusiasts. Given the rarity and price of genuine hardware units, most will be interested in this as users of Arturia CMI or QasarBeach as those are software recreations available to everyone.

Sample Libraries

Below are various factory and user samples in IIx format. All downloads contain disk images for use on hardware units, but also VC format for software recreations, as well as WAV format for import (and/or conversion) into almost any hardware or software sampler.
