Forgotten Keys releases Univox SR-95 / Keio Mini Pops MP-7 Drum Machine Sample Pack

Forgotten Keys Univox SR-95

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.

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
  • Rhythm Ace Drum Machine
  • Boss – DR55 & DR110
  • Sakata – DPM-48
  • Simmons Drum Kit
  • Korg – KPR-77 & DDD-1
  • Access – Virus Drumkit
  • Fruity Loops Drumkit
  • Yamaha – DD10 & PSS80
  • MachineDrum – BombiBit & E12 Standard Kit
  • Roland – R8m, CR-78, TR-505, TR-606 & TR-707

Check Lx7.ca for a link to download the drumkits.

Review: Goldbaby Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1 sample pack

Goldbaby Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1

Goldbaby Productions has released another sample library featuring some sampled drum machines: Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1.

After the familiar sounds of the The Tape808, 909 and freebie 606 (all Roland TR machines), Goldbaby dug up 8 somewhat more obscure vintage drum machines to sample.

Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1 comes with a nice PDF with detailed information on each drum machine.

  • Conn Rhapsody Rhythm Unit — This is a (rare) rhythm unit from a Conn Rhapsody organ. It has 22 presets and 10 sounds.
  • Korg Rhythm 55B — This Roland CR competitor has some warm analog sounds. It has a stunning 96 patterns, and 10 sounds (looks like this is the version 2 model without the disco rhythms).
  • Electro Harmonix DRM 15 / 16 / 32 — Features the lovely space-drum and the snap sounds. The analogue sounds from these boxes are great for electro music.
  • Eko Ritmo 12 — The little brother of the Ritmo 20, this rhythm box has 12 preset rhythms.
  • Univox Micro Rhythmer — A small little analog box with 8 preset rhythms and 5 individual sounds. I thought the Rhythmer only had a kick sound with layered hihat, but this machine does have the individual base drum sound (and snare, hi hat, open hi hat and rim shot).
  • Roland Rhythm 330 — The Rhythm 330 (or TR-330) has a warm analog sound. It’s another organ rhythm box without the actual organ. Comes with some lovely cheesy patterns.
  • Hohner Rhythm 80K — This German rhythm unit features 80 patterns and 8 sounds. It’s sounds rather tame with a subby kick and modest snare sounds.
  • Olson X-100 — An American rhythm unit that nobody seems to know much about. The 8 individual sounds can be triggered. It sounds quite noisy and rough to me.

The nice thing about these analog drum machines is that you’ll virtually never hear the exact same sound twice. Goldbaby has recorded multiple samples of each drum sound to give you the same kind of analog feel.

Besides the samples you also get tons of the presets in REX format so you can play the rhythms as if you have the real thing.

So what do I think?

I realize these type of samples are not everyone’s cup of tea (Zak, do not buy this!), but if you’re into vintage analog drum machine sounds, you’re going to like this one.

Since it’s a Goldbaby library you can also be sure the quality is top notch and the price is right: $24 USD for Guru, $19 USD for the Wav & Rex Pack.

Goldbaby Productions Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1

Goldbaby Productions has released Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1, a sample pack featuring 8 vintage drum machines.

From the product page:

The first electronic drum machines were analog preset machines. They were designed to be electronic drummers… They almost never sounded realistic but this has made them very appealling to electronicmusicians! Analog AutoRhythyms Vol 1 is a collection of 8 of these vintage drum machines. An ecletic mix of rare,bizarreand famous instruments…

Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1 features

  • 8 drum machines used:
    1. Korg – KR 55B
    2. Roland – TR 330
    3. Conn – Rhapsody Rhythm Unit
    4. Electro Harmonix – DRM 15 / 16 / 32
    5. Eko – Ritmo 12
    6. Univox – Micro Rhythmer
    7. Hohner – Rhythm 80K
    8. Olson – X100
  • Multiple samples of each drum sound give this product the ability to sound more “analog” than just one sample per drum (This can be achieved by using round robin layering).
  • Includes a selection of the original beats in Rex format.

Analog AutoRhythms Vol 1 is available a download for Guru ($24 USD) and as a Wav & Rex Pack ($19 USD).
