Subaqueous releases Retro Drums – Free Vintage Drum Racks

Subaqueous Retro Drums

Subaqueous has rekeased Retro Drums, a free vintage drum racks pack for Ableton Live.

Of late I’ve been really inspired by the sounds of the 80′s. I even watched the movie Xanadu last night for inspiration. What a terribly awesome movie by the way. Iv’e been loving the vintage tape sounds,lush synth pads,and striking percussion. I’ve had a chance to work with some analog drum machines to make Live Drum Racks for my production. The drum machines were the Alesis HR16, LinnDrum, and Simmons Crash Trap.

I’ve spent time processing the one shots, 76 in total, and putting them in drum racks with Macro controls for Ableton Live 9. I’m really proud of how these racks turned out and wanted to share them with you all. Hope to inspire some rad chillwave and glo-fil, been really digging that genre of late.

The drum racks pack is a free download. A pack of one shot samples for use in any DAW is also available.

Samples From Mars releases LinnDrum LM-2 & CR-78 sample packs

Samples From Mars has launched with the release of its LinnDrum LM-2 and CR-78 sample packs.

Classic, Hi Quality LinnDrum Samples

Samples From Mars LinnDrum LM-2

This is the most complete collection of LinnDrum samples around.

We’ve taken a Linn Drum LM-2, sampled the individual outputs into a classic Emu Sp-1200 sampler, pitched them every which way, run them through an SSL console, recorded them to a mastering 1/4″ tape machine and finally into Apogee conversion.

To achieve additional depth and variety we’ve also used a Roland Re-201 Space Echo to give these Linndrum samples even more character and depth.

The LinnDrum LM-2 pack costs $12 USD. A collection of 21 sounds is available in the LinnDrum LM-2 Free Kit.

CR-78 Samples Recorded to Tape and Re-Pitched

The CR-78 sample pack features the sounds of the classic analog Roland CR-78 rhythm machine, processed through an SSL console EQ, gate, compressor and filters, and recorded through high end Apogee converters.

Samples From Mars CR-78

We’ve gone a step further, recording the CR-78 to a hi-end mastering reel to reel tape machine, and extensively re-pitching each and every sound. This gives us an incredibly dynamic library of sounds that the original machine did not provide – lower and higher kick drums, snares, hi hats, congas, and the famous bleeps and bloops. And we’ve hit the tape at varying levels, so you get a combination of overdriven and softer sounds – sometimes with nice tape artifacts and sometimes entirely clean.

The end result is an extremely punchy and extensive (the largest library we’ve found on the internet), excellent sounding library of CR-78 samples: 136 24 bit 44.1 kHz wav files, with enough headroom to allow you for even more processing if you’d like.

The CR-78 sample pack costs $8 USD.

# The Father of Drum Machines and the Father of MIDI Talk About Design and the Tempest

Dave Smith and Roger Linn (image by CDM)

Peter Kirn talks to the people responsible for one of the most exciting things over at the Winter NAMM show, the Tempest drum machine – Roger Linn and Dave Smith.

In songwriting, there was Rodgers and Hart, Gilbert and Sullivan. In music gear design, it’s hard not to assign a similar degree of expectation to the pairing of Dave Smith and Roger Linn.

Between them, these two designers have been a major part of what music technology is today. Dave Smith pioneered MIDI (even giving it its acronym), the first microprocessor-based instrument (the Prophet-5), the first programmable polyphonic synth, and other innovations at Sequential Circuits. Add to that landmarks in physical modeling research (at Yamaha) and the first PC soft synth. Roger Linn built the first programmable sampled-sound drum machine and with the LM-1, LinnDrum, Linn 9000, and his work on the MPC60 and MPC3000, introduced workflows and ideas in drum machines we now take for granted. It’s not easy to overstate the contributions of either designer.

# Zimoun : Sound Sculptures & Installations

This is Compilation Video V2.2 (updated January 2011) of sound sculptures and installations by Swiss artist Zimoun. I can watch this for hours.

Zimoun's sound sculptures and installations are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic».

He is interested in the artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviours in sound and motion. He creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.

More on Zimoun here.

# Emu Planet Phatt Hits

25 free drumkits for Kontakt 3

Lx7.ca drumkits for Kontakt 3

Vergel Evans recently posted a nice collection of drumkits for Kontakt 3.

After finding some nice drum machine samples at soundlib.noisetheorem.com, Vergel created a multi-set of drum kits for Kontakt 3.

It was quite a find… not only did soundlib have an extensive collection of TR-808 and TR-909 samples, it also has a whole collection of samples for the Boss-660, and a set of custom built Cwejman modular drums. Each with tons of variations.

Leaving those extensive sample banks aside, I compiled a broad selection of my favorite retro drum machines, into a multi-set of drum kits for Kontakt3. The kits aren’t perfect, but atleast the drum sets are laid out in order and ready for anyone to personalize them to make them their own.

The multi pack includes kits of these drum machines:

  • Linn – LinnDrum
  • Sequential Circuits – DrumTracks
  • Univox Drum Machine
  • Emu- Drumulator
  • Rhodes – Polaris Drums
  • Moog – MG-1
  • MFB – 512
