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).
Mysterious producer Ghostek presents a deep and varied sample library, containing an eclectic selection of lo-fi garage breaks, driving techno percussion, granular pads, dark brooding atmospheres, deep and sometimes sinister basslines, and a huge collection of one shot drums and effects samples.
From airy, floaty trips to sinister, pulsating rhythms, this sample pack pushes forward the deep house, garage and techno movement towards something that is both unique and varied, yet somehow bound together by a distinct feeling of otherworldiness and emotion.
Future Garage and Deep Techno features

Introducing Lithium Beats, a revolutionary new drum machine for Kontakt 5, with a powerful custom interface and groove browser, over 400 expertly crafted 24 Bit drum samples from sound designer EVAC, and over 250 versatile midi grooves for a whole range of genres.
The machine is built around a beatifully diverse collection of drum samples, that were created from a huge collection of over 3000 field recordings and analogue machine noises, which were then painstakingly recorded, editing and finally assembled into a stunning collection of drum kits. All samples are laid out in a similar format, allowing midi grooves to be used between kits, and individual samples to be mixed and matched as desired.
The midi grooves can simply be auditioned and dragged straight from Kontakt to your DAW, where you can edit them as you wish…or just create your own grooves.
The sample library is available to purchase for Kontakt 5 for the introductory price of £37 GBP (regular £49 GBP). The library is also available as a Wav + sampler patches pack (Battery, EXS24 and Reason NN-XT), priced at £34.70 GBP.
