Forgotten Keys releases Univox SR-95 / Keio Mini Pops MP-7 Drum Machine Sample Pack

Forgotten Keys Univox SR-95

Forgotten Keys has released a free sample pack featuring sounds from the Univox SR-95 / Keio Mini Pops MP-7 Drum Machine.

The Univox SR-95 (aka Keio MiniPops MP-7) Drum Machine is an analog machine from the 1970s. It was probably most famously used by Jean-Michel Jarre on his Oxygene album in 1976. The Univox branded version was, I believe, for the USA market. This is the version I have and which I paid a bit over-the-top for on eBay in 2009.

Univox SR-95 / Keio Mini Pops MP-7 Drum Machine sample pack

  • All 15 sounds with eight round-robin variations plus the “warm-up” sound you get when you switch the machine on.
  • Sounds: Bass Drum, Snare Drum 1, Snare Drum 2, Rimshot, Hi-Hat, Cymbal 1, Cymbal 2, Cowbell, Conga, Large Bongo, Small Bongo, Claves, Quijada, Guiro, Tambourine.
  • Format: 24 bit wav.
  • Samples have not been individually normalised as the original balance between each sound would have been lost.

The Univox SR-95 sample pack is available to download at no cost. Donations are appreciated.

  • UPDATE: Now uses the Kontakt Performance view feature. This allows you to control the extra percussion sounds and balance from software or hardware controls just like the real thing!
