Samplephonics has released 909, a multi-sampled drum hits sound library.
The Kontakt version of Samplephonics 909 comes with a custom sequencer.
Expect to find over 4000 24 Bit Wav samples, meticulously sampled through two inputs, one clean, and one through a Thermionic Culture ‘Culture Vulture’ to provide some real analogue tube warmth and extra beef!
This sample library is available to download with a deeply scripted sequencer for Kontakt 5 (please note the full version of Kontakt 5 is required to run this and the instrument only works in demo mode with the Kontakt Free Player.) Create, copy, paste and edit patterns and even play live. We’ve kept many features true to the original (and added a few more necessities) and we believe this to be the closest software equivelent to the real thing.
Take your music back to it’s roots and inject some truly authentic drum samples into your next production. The 909 is back!
