Forgotten Keys has released version 2 of its Univox SR-95 / Keio Minipops MP-7 Drum Machine sample pack.
Version two is a major update of the Kontakt instrument file.
There is now a built-in rhythm pattern player with all the original rhythms from both the Univox SR-95 and Keio minipops MP-7. Rhythms can be combined just like the real thing, in fact you are able to create combinations unavailable on the real thing due to the way the selector buttons were shared between two rhythms.
You can also mute instrument groups (of which there are eight) and add “Imperfections” like velocity and timing variations. Sound groups can now also be panned.
The Univox SR-95 / Keio Minipops MP-7 sample pack is available to purchase for £3.50 GBP.

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.
