Elektron releases Caught on Tape: 808+909 for Octatrack

Elektron Caught on Tape: 808+909

Elektron has announced the release of Caught on Tape: 808+909, a drum machine sample library for the Octatrack.

Classics never go out of style. The Roland TR-808 and TR-909 are legendary drum machines, cherished and praised for their sound and percussive abilities. Goldbaby has pulled out all the stops and carefully recorded these revered machines using an Ampex 351 1/2″ valve 2 track tape machine. The result is warm, round and beautifully saturated analog sounds – perfect sample material for the Octatrack.

The sound pack is specifically made for the Octatrack. Included is an Octatrack set featuring 1 project, 16 patterns and 4 parts. Also included are 16 scenes per part, providing a great starting point for experimenting with the demo patterns.

The sound library costs 30 EUR.

Goldbaby Tape909 now available for Maschine & Geist

Goldbaby Tape909

Goldbaby has announced that its Tape909 drum machine sample library is now available in Maschine and Geist formats.

The Tape808 has been very well received so we decided to give the TR909 some tape love!… This is 1446 samples taken from a mint 909 recorded into an Ampex 351 1/2″ valve 2 track tape machine! That’s not all… We also put the 909 through other vintage gear. Plus we recorded it naked into a Metric Halo ULN-2 firewire audio card. Then we chose the best samples.

All 24 bit, and all solid 909 goodness! If you can’t get a hold of a real 909 then this is as close as you can get in samples… Maybe even better than the having the real thing!

The sample pack costs $29 USD. The download now includes Maschine, Battery, ReFill, Geist, Guru, iDrum and Wav formats.

Review: Goldbaby’s Urban Cookbook Vol. 1

When you need some solid electronic drum sounds, Goldbaby’s sample packs are always a good place to turn to. With Goldbaby’s Urban Cookbook Vol. 1, Hugo once again provides quality sounds to help you cook up some delicious dishes, urban style.

Goldbaby's Urban Cookbook Vol 1

Want to cook up some delicious beats… well then you probably need my cookbook. The ingredients are full of saturated fat, MSG, a heap of sugar and are not suitable for a low cholesterol diet. The recipes are perfect for these dishes: Hip Hop, Dub Step, Drum & Bass, Breaks, Grime, Dance Hall, Electro… Although chefs making other dishes like: IDM, House and Techno will appreciate the varied high quality ingredients.

Punchy Kicks, Solid Snares, Hi Hats, Toms, Percussion, Claps, Cymbals, Layering tools, FX, Vinyl Hits, Chord Hits, Bass tools and Rex Loops… just over 1 GB of the freshest ingredients.

The sample pack includes various formats and comes with patches for most common samplers.

  • 3,398 samples (24-bit quality).
  • 200 REX loops.
  • 142 Maschine kits (plus 7 projects) and 13 instruments.
  • 49 presets + 145 kits for Geist.
  • 135 Battery 3 kits.
  • 136 Kontakt 4 kits.
  • 141 EXS24 patches for Logic (can also be imported in Kontakt, Ableton Live Sampler, Halion, etc.)
  • 50 Kong kits, 140 NN-XT patches and 9 Combinators for Reason 5 and above.

I checked out the Maschine version which also comes with the patches for Kontakt, Battery and EXS24. The Maschine kits are divided in folders – Combos (4), Drum Kits (52), FX (20), Hits & Chords (31), Percussion Kits (20), and Vox (15), and to help you find the right type of sound some of the kits are tagged in categories like analog, digital, sfx, etc.

The Kontakt instruments include bass, drum kits, FX, hits and chords, individual drums, layering tools, and vox. It may look like this is basically the same as the Maschine content but there are a bunch of different instruments in here (same for the EXS24 format which you can also load in Kontakt).

While browsing the different kits and instruments it struck me that Goldbaby’s samples always sound “fresh” and up-to-date. The Cookbook includes a fair share of sounds that are similar to the ones in other Goldbaby sample packs, but Hugo records all content for each sample library specifically for said library, which makes sense since Goldbaby’s studio equipment is regularly updated with new gear.

Besides all the kits and patches there is a lot more sample content than was used for the kits so there is a lot to explore, and swapping out sounds within kits is easy. In Maschine the kits come with some lovely patterns and the included projects are a nice bonus, as are the REX loops which feature various percussion loops, fx loops, grooves and more.

In all, this pack has lots of unique content with that vintage Goldbaby vibe. It’s kind of like crate digging without having to do all the hard work. Instant satisfaction!

Check below for an example of the type of thing you can cook up with Goldbaby’s ingredients. A few more demo mp3s can be found at the Urban Cookbook product page here.

So what do I think?

Product: Goldbaby’s Urban Cookbook Vol.1
Format: 24bit WAV, REX / Maschine, Geist, Kontakt, Battery & EXS24 / Reason ReFill
Price: $49 USD
Like: fantastic sounds, well done kits and patches, phat!
Don’t like: –
Verdict: 9/10

With Urban Cookbook Vol 1, Goldbaby does what Goldbaby does best: deliver quality drum sounds with a vintage feel. I think Hugo did a fantastic job with the kits. The combination of sounds in each kit is inspiring and everything is really well produced to get that typical fat, punchy, deep sound. I know a lot of thought went into creating and processing the samples and making sure the kits work well musically, and it shows.

The additional sounds are fantastic. Beautiful chords, guitar strums, useful sound fx, string type sounds. Just love it. Now don’t think this is construction kit type stuff, but these are just a bunch of lovely sounds to compliment the drum/percussion content. Signature Goldbaby.

After spending some good time with this new pack (and already using it in some projects), I think the Urban Cookbook may well be my favorite Goldbaby library to date. Go check it out!
