Wave Alchemy has announced a free taster pack of the upcoming Synth Drums, a sample library featuring drum sounds from vintage synthesizers.
Imagine taking ten of the most sought-after vintage synthesizers in history, synthesizing hundreds of drum sounds with each instrument and processing each of these sounds individually using a carefully thought out high-end signal chain and you are getting a little closer to understanding the concept of our forthcoming Synth Drums sample library…
What synths have we used you might ask? Here is a list of the instruments used to create the raw source material for Synth Drums:
Roland Jupiter 8, Roland System-100 (101, 102, 104), Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2, Sequential Circuits Pro One, Korg MS-20, ARP Odyssey MK1, Moog Minimoog Model D, Oberheim OB8, Roland Juno 106, Roland SH-09.
When complete (soon!) Synth Drums will contain thousands of unique, 100% original synthesized drum hits and percussive samples. We wanted the library to be as flexible as possible, and so we have decided to include all of the unprocessed synthesized source material, as well as expertly processed versions of each and every drum sound (including analogue tape and vinyl variations)!
The free Synth Drums taster pack includes 200 processed drum sounds taken directly from the forthcoming library. The full Synth Drums Collection is scheduled for release in mid-April.
