The sounds of the video game of the past that thrilled us at arcades and at home have now returned in an 8-bit anthology.

It has been over 25 years since the global disco sound boom of the 1970’s “Saturday Night Fever” music scene. These disco sounds were unstoppable during the era, however they quickly faded do to their formulaic nature. By the ’80s, disco was obsolete. During that period, the video arcade game phenomenon was conquering every coffee shop and mall around the world. The lo-fi “bit” sound was exploding in popularity, as the catchy sound of "Pac Man" and the like bleeped around the planet.

The library introduced here is the collection of sound loops from early, beloved video games. Despite the simple kitschiness, the 8-bit sound (a rectangle wave, a triangular wave, and noise), has become a treasured piece of pop culture, and is making a comeback in today’s music.

"8 Bit Family" was crowned with "KEY BUY AWARD" by KEYBOARD magazine. This is the second such splendid achivement for Discovery; "The Legend Of China" received the first such award.

Review
"8 bit family" was crowned with "KEY BUY AWARD" of KEYBOARD magazine, that is recieved the salute of a guard of honor internationally, at July issue. This is the second time splendid achivement following "The Legend Of China" that is recieved first award as Japanese CD sampling maker.

A part of comments in KEYBOARD magazine is quoted.
Crispy, crunchy, crappy. Three adjectives that well describe the sound of the vintage videogames to whichi this collection pays loving tribute. The crazy character of classic game sounds is preserved, but music material and composition are new and entirely original. (Omission) "8 bit family" that deliver large amounts of metallic-sound moves through wicked arpeggios, wacky riffs, drum grooves nuttier than any dinkity-doink analog beatbox., and a great assortment of sound effects, as well as the individual drum hit.

More adjectives: filthy, hard aggressive, comical, wild, silly.(Omission) "8 bit family" is a grand slam, and more than worthy of a Key Buy Award . - Mr. KEN HUGHES
