Wave Alchemy has released 606 Drums, a free sample pack featuring the sounds of the Roland TR-606 drum machine.
606 Drums by Wave Alchemy serves up 290 drum samples from Roland’s sought-after TR-606 drum machine. The samples included have been lovingly recorded through an API pre-amp with many sounds boasting multiple round robin variations, accent and velocity layers!
606 Drums contains four pre-mapped drum kit patches for use with Kontakt 2, 3, & 4 and Battery 3. Each kit makes extensive use of multiple velocity layers, round robin sample playback and choke groups to create truly expressive sample instruments.
606 Drums features
- Driven Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded and processed through a Thermionic Culture Vulture MV to give a harmonically rich and extremely colourful sound. This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound.
- Dry Kit – includes a whooping 168 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded clean through an API 512c pre-amp. This kit has been recorded in 96K, 24-bit and includes 8 round robin samples per sound as well as 3 accent / velocity layers per hit!
- Stereo FX Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded and abused through a Moog Voyager’s stereo filtering capabilities whilst being controlled by a ton of MoogerFoogers and various other CV gear! This kit sounds almost totally unrecognisable to the true TR-606 sound…
- Warm Kit – includes 40 TR-606 drum samples which have been treated to generous amounts of vintage compression, EQ and saturation from a range of Wave Alchemy’s extensive outboard collection! This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound.
Wave Alchemy 606 Drums is available as a free download. Registration (free) is required.
