NES Light Zapper – Free Ableton Live Pack by Brian Funk
Brian Funk just released Free Ableton Live Pack #199. Nintendo’s Light Zapper was an exciting part of Brian Funk’s 80’s childhood. While getting blown away in a wild west gun dual in Wild Gunman and desperately firing away in Duck Hunt (often at that dog that laughs at you when you miss the ducks), the sound of that trigger clicking away was embedded into Brian’s brain.
If you listen closely, the spring resonates a pitch for a second or two after you fire the zapper. Brian decided to sample that ringing spring, as well as the trigger and whatever other noises he could make with it.
