CONNECT:D Audio has launched Vintage Drum Machines, a collection of 2,000 drum samples.
The story goes that there’s a man who owns over 180 drum machines, lovingly collected and curated over a span of 30 years. From must-have classics to under-appreciated rarities, this mystery man’s collection of hardware is one of the most envied in the music world. After a chance meeting in San Francisco, we pitched him the idea of dusting off his equipment to create this product and showcase these amazing machines to the world. We were honoured when he agreed to work with us on this ambitious project, meticulously recording each sound in his LA studio.
After 6 months and a love affair with all manner of cables, grooveboxes and many things analogue, the first volume is finally ready. From the thousands of resultant audio files, we compiled the best 500 sounds from more than 20 iconic drum machines, which are listed below, and then further processed them for different sonic flavours.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £24.95 GBP.
