Fairlight CMI 4 Amiga straight from disk (II)

I've converted uncompressed all the Fairlight IMD images to BIN using a command in CMIOS9, then loaded in octamed as a sample to check what was inside. The sound was there, but had a lot of distortion (wrong bit encoding format), so i played a little with the image in SoundBox and realised that an endian flip operation was only needed to obtain the amiga signet bit pcm. After convert all the files, they have been chopped in octamed and added loop by hand (128 byte-steps works perfect) if needed (not always!)

It has been a hard work, but I think it's a must to preserve these sounds and there was no tool to repair those faulty image disks.

I've found many duplicates, but didn't delete them even if they were faulty files (easy edit possible) to keep the disk content as much as possible. Sample names are missing because i couldn't look into any directory as you would figure.

Again, please upload the file to the zone

Thanks for watching. F$$K the obsolescence!!!
