ELPHNT has released an update to 552, a faithful recreation of the MFB-522 analog drum machine.

The updated Drum Rack for Live features improvements to make the controls more useful. Additionally, Single Hit instruments have been added for each drum sound as well to mix and match the 522 sounds with other Ableton Drum Racks.

The 522 is fully analog, with a sound reminiscent of an 808 yet with its own unique character. Just like the 808, the 522 works for almost any genre, be it the rolling hats and boomy kicks of Trap & Hip Hop or the punchy boom-tss-ka-tss of House & Techno.

The Ableton Drum Rack takes it one step further by presenting you with simple to use Macro controls to transform the sound well beyond the possibilities of the original hardware.

522 features

  • 522 Ableton Drum Rack (522.adg).
  • 13 Single Hit 522 Drums (.adg files).
