Samplephonics has launched the 808 // 909 Bundle, a discounted bundle including the 808 and 909 drum machine sample libraries.
Probably the most iconic drum machines ever built, the TR808 and 909 Rhythm Composer, are now available to download in high resolution digital format, together at last!
After years of competing against each other, with the 808′s boomy kick and melodic tom toms and the 909′s crunchy hi hats and thumping kick, a truce has finally been made and they can both be yours to own in this snug little bundle.
With over 9000 24 Bit Wav samples, full presets libraries and two beautifully scripted interfaces, these fully fledged drum sequencers pay a real tribute to the original machines, and are in our opinion, the most accurate software recreations available to date.
Please note, you need a full copy of Kontakt 5 to run the sequencers, although you can also use the Kontakt 4, Ableton, EXS24 and Reason NN-XT sampler instruments.
The bundle costs £69 GBP (£29 GBP off individual prices).
