Super Audio Cart faithfully reproduces the sound of seven classic video game systems whose cultural legacy and influence has lasted far beyond their commercial lifespans. When the library was conceived, the goal was superb authenticity by deep-sampling every sound chip. But over time, Impact Soundworks expanded their vision to shatter the limitations of the original systems and allow for near-infinite sound design possibilities.
The final version of Super Audio Cart is the culmination of 2+ years of intense research, development, and sound design. With a massive 5,500+ samples meticulously recorded, edited, and looped, we’ve thoroughly captured the raw capabilities of each game system. These sounds are loaded into a custom Kontakt Player engine packed with cutting-edge features, along with 1,000+ factory snapshots to inspire both retro music, chiptunes, and modern genres.
To create this instrument, everyone involved needed a passion and deep connection to both video games and their music. That’s why Impact Soundworks collaborated with OverClocked ReMix, a website and community dedicated to the appreciation of game music. To us, Super Audio Cart represents the ultimate tribute to that art form, and we know that it will find a place in your music for many years to come!

I use this for all kinds of projects. It is so versatile! And very convenient to have so much old style computer game sounds in one interface. The interface is very well thought out. It is very intuitive to use. The sound-quality is also very good. No complaints. I think this product is not only useful for people composing chiptunes but all kinds of stuff. Even sounddesign. If you are creative you'll find many ways to put these sounds to use.
