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.
Anton Lyubenov Savov aka Antto has released version 1.0 of Venom VB-303, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows.
The Venom VB-303 is an approximation of the classic 303 Bass Line synthesizer.
I don’t want to delay this any longer. I disabled some functions because they are not vital and were a little broken: .303 file import/export and pattern manipulators are disabled. MidiPlay mode has an annoying lock to encourage you to use the sequencer more often.
A huge thanks to you KVR people, for your patience, help, and feedback.
Venom VB-303 is available to download for Windows (VST).
