Tony Mansfield’s treasure trove of Fairlight effects, from the second 12″. The samples are all used in the song. Despite trying for a hit on 2 occasions, with 3 different 12 inch records worth of mixes, the record wasn’t a commercial success (in the UK anyway.)

There has been a request for a more simple, scaled down and refined version, and this has now been produced. Fairlight NNXT builds upon the original Fairlight CMI documentation for revision 1.3 from Fairlight Instruments (included) which describes the 32 factory disks. All disks are included here and the refill contains 350 Fairlight CMI NNXT sounds for Reason 7. The refill also contains all of the Subtractor, Thor and Malström sounds from the bigger versions, as well as a couple of bonus “disks” with Bitley sounds, Art Of Noise sounds and Vince Clarke sounds. The sounds are sorted and named exactly as on the 32 original Fairlight CMI disks. The file size is just below 120 Mb.
