Zero-G Datafile CDs, 1990s.

Developed by Ed Stratton and released in 1991 and 1992, these CDs contained a variety of sampled sounds, 1000 on each volume, including breakbeats, percussion, vocal and speech samples, sci-fi sound effects and more.


Notable users include Daft Punk, who used a brass hit sample from Zero-G Datafile Three on their 1995 track, “Da Funk” (see video below.


According to an extensive thread by user MasterTHG on RYM and various other online sources, there seem to be a number of video game OST’s that utilize Zero G Datafile samples, including Super Mario 64 (the “Boo Haunt” - Haunted House sample 46 on Datafile Two), Silent Hill 2, 3 and 4, Rayman and more.
