Tape Drum Machines Vol 1 is available as a wav pack for $24 USD, and a GURU featuring 12 bundles (including some patterns) and 12 kits costs $29 USD. Battery and ReFill versions are coming soon.
Goldbaby has also released a free sample pack to celebrate the release of Tape Drum Machines Vol 1.
TheTapeVermonaDRM contains 142 x 24 bit samples of the Vermona DRM, recorded on an Otari MX5050 1/4 inch tape machine. The original drum hits are included as well.
Each drum sound has been recorded multiple times for use in Round Robin Layering. This can help recreate the analog feel of the machine.
