About Us

Originally forced to fight one another for the amusement of a mysteriously omnipresent despot, 8UP joined together to battle against injustice with 8-bit sounds and provide the world with sample packs and instruments for all kinds of 8-bit & chiptune music.

Our product line includes royalty free 8-bit sample packs, chiptune instruments, drum kits and sound effect libraries formatted for Native Instruments Kontakt & Maschine, Ableton Live, Akai MPC Software, Image-Line FL Studio, Logic Pro EXS24 Sampler, and TAL-Sampler. All samples are provided as 24-bit, 44.1 kHz WAV files and are usable in all DAWs. Maschine instruments and samples are tagged for the Maschine browser. MPC libraries are provided in the form of MPC Expansion Packs.

All sounds provided by this website are replicas, variations, or inspirations based off of classic video games from the 80s and 90s. All samples were torturestakingly created from scratch. No games were sampled in any product.

If you would like to license samples or instruments for another product, or are in need of customized 8-bit sound design, contact us.
