Forgotten Keys has launched Compu78, a Kontakt instrument library that offers an accurate simulation of the late 70s CompuRhythm CR-78 drum machine by Roland.

Compu78 takes the previously released FK6: Roland CompuRhythm CR-78 and brings an updated interface with more advanced features.

Forgotten Keys Compu78

It features all the original sounds meticulously sampled at multiple accent levels and with up to eight round-robin variations depending on the sound. All the original rhythms and variations have been accurately reproduced and you can program your own rhythms in the same manner as you would on the original combined with a WS-1 programmer. In addition, you can record a performance and save it as a MIDI file.

It included several Snapshots that reproduce the rhythms of famous songs that featured the CR-78.

Compu78 for Kontakt 5.8 or higher (full version) is available from Kontakt Hub for the intro price of £12 GBP (regular £16 GBP). Prices ex. VAT.
