Akai releases Vintage Beat Machines
Akai Professional has released Vintage Beat Machines, a sample library for MPCs containing all kinds of classic drums and percussion sounds.
You’ll find some of the most common sounds, and some sounds you’ve likely never heard before. These sounds are from drum machines, beat and rhythm generators, and other synthesizers dating from the 1980s all the way back into the 1960s!
These sounds have the less-refined, more raw sound qualities that many producers prefer for their drums. Until now, building a library of these classic sounds has meant locating expensive and rare equipment – a time-consuming and costly process. With the Vintage Beat Machines Sample Pack for MPC, you’ll have everything you need in a single, affordable download.
Vintage Beat Machines features
- Sample library for all MPC models.
- Classic drum and percussion sounds from drum machines, beat and rhythm generators, and other synthesizers.
- Less-refined, more raw sound qualities.
- Samples and analog synthesis-based sounds.
- Sound from more than 55 different beat machines.
Vintage Beat Machines is available for the introductory price of $19.99 through March 12, 2009 (regular price is $29.99 USD).
