Forgotten Keys has launched FK13: Korg Mini-Pops 3 (AKA Univox SR-55), a virtual drum machine instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The MP-3 or SR-55, depending or where it was purchased, is an all analogue drum machine from the 1970s. Although it has less sounds that the MP-7/SR-95 it has more rhythm patterns due to the 36 variations of the swing/foxtrot rhythm.
The nine sounds are similar to the equivalents of the MP-7/SR-95 though the bass and cymbals are a little different. If you already have my FK1 Kontakt instrument there will not be a lot new here but I thought it was worth doing for a “no-brainer” price as I believe the current expression goes.
FK13: Korg Mini-Pops 3 features
- 9 multi-sampled sounds.
- 20 combinable re-created rhythms with 36 variations of the foxtrot/swing rhythm.
- Volume, pan, tune and mute for each sound.
- Note input and audio output routing.
The sample library costs £3 GBP.
