Butch Techno Percussion is a collection of almost 400 highly processed synthetic drum samples in 16 bit WAV-format.
The original material came from a TR-909 drum machine. The drum samples were loaded into a E-mu E4XT Ultra hardware sampler for some serious time stretching sessions.
A big portion of the sounds were processed and shaped with Fxpansion Geist and re-composed into percussive sounds. Another portion of the sounds were mangled in the Ohmforce Symptohm granular sampler.
