After releasing the Mellotron samples separately, I'm doing the same now with all the original Fairlight CMI samples that were previously only available in my free Fairlight CMI Live Packs, so that you can use them in any DAW that you might be working with.

The Fairlight CMI, short for Computer Musical Instrument, is a digital synthesiser, sampler and digital audio workstation introduced in 1979. Early adopters were Peter Gabriel, Thomas Dolby and Kate Bush.
