MC 01 was featured in the What's New section of the February, 2010 EM Cast (Electronic Musician magazine's podcast). You can listen or download the podcast from here.  The part about the Memory Collection starts about 26 minutes into the podcast and has an audio example made by Len Sasso.  Below are 2 quotes from it.

  - interesting fun to play with collection... just going through the library will make you laugh

                                                Memory Collection Sample Packs

  The samples in this collection are taken from Public Domain movies, documentaries, TV shows and TV ads.  I chose the name Memory Collection because by definition works in the Public Domain are from the past, a past often not very distant but sadly also often forgotten or ignored.  These collections bring back some of the sounds from the past.

  These video documents are usually old and the sound quality is often not great and they're noisy too. The samples include voice/spoken word/dialogs, sfx/foley and music. Many of them can be further divided so you can have some fun yourself ;-).

   Also don't expect that every sample in them will be useful to you.  But I am sure they will be fun!

  These sample packs donationware with a minimum required donation.  See the bottom of this page for orders.

  The samples in the packs are not mapped in any way, they only contain the wav files. But I made the Mini MC1 with 47 mapped samples (sfz, Cakewalk Session Drummer 3, NuSofting DK+2, NI Battery 3 and Kontakt 3) to better illustrate the possibilities offered by these samples.  The included readme has more details.

  Memory Collection Pack 05 - Sci-Fi and Aliens

  1 750 samples for a size of 1.44 GB.  The samples in this collection are taken from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies.  Please note that the samples are not mapped in any way or in any specific sampler format.  The MC 05 only contains wav files.  The download is divided in 2 rar files (328 and 502 MB).

  Download or read the PDF documentation (with screen captures) and the complete list of the samples.

  The movies are from the 1930s to the 1970s.  So they cover different styles of soundtracks.  I was surprised by the quality of the soundtracks in general.  They featured early electronic music with a creative mix of various types of sound sources.  Even without using any of the samples in a composition, just listening to them is fun and it also is a lesson in the history and evolution of sound design in movies.
