– 190 different sounds*
– 2050 WAV samples
– Minimum 4 Roun Robin samples per sound
– 24 bits audio files
– 540 Mb
* The difference between a sound and a sample is that a sound exists conceptually. For example, this library contains 51 different snare sounds but (because of the round robin) we include +200 snare samples.
– 260 Instruments including
– 55 drum rack devices
– 12 impulse devices
– 9 Sampler devices with selectable sounds (all sounds included in a patch)
– 190 sampler devices
– 321 clips
– 52 groups
– 47 pgms
* All samples are WAV format. This means they are virtually compatible with 99% of audio devices.
Feel free to use this sample pack with hardware samplers such as Elektron Octatrack, Digitakt, Roland SPs, or any software samplers.
REQUIRED FOR PRESETS:
Ableton 9.7.7 (or newer)
Maschine 2.5.2 (or newer)
Akai MPC 1000/2500
After our take on some modern analog classics –Jomox Xbase 09, Vermona DRM-1 & DSI Tempest– which we sampled thoroughly for our Raw Series of drum libraries, we decided to take a more experimental route this time and build a set of custom drum kits and sounds out of Pepe’s (Positif) huge and tasty eurorack modular.
The idea was not just to build an assorted set of drum samples, but something that had a certain sound to it, something coherent that could resemble a real retro drum machine when mixed together. The inspiration came from the story behind Roland’s own TR-808 voice design. It’s been said that some of the mythical TR sounds were first synthesized via a giant System 700 modular housed at Roland’s engineering lab in Japan, and that those patches served as the template for the circuits behind the now legendary voices of the 808.
Modular ROUND ROBIN
We’ve recorded all raw sounds directly from the modular as round-robin multisamples x4.
This multisampling technique, given the slightly unstable nature of modular synthesizers, brings more liveness and realistic analog character to the sounds, since no samples will sound the same when put in a row while building a beat.
