Kontakt Hub has launched Oxypops, a virtual simulation of an old drum machine from the 1960s generally known as the Mini Pops 7.

Forgotten Keys returns with the sounds of the Korg/Keio Mini Pops 7, a non programmable analog rhythm box which was used by Jean-Michel Jarre on the Oxygene album.

The sounds in Oxypops are 24 Bit resolution samples and up to 16 round-robin variations are included. Noise generated sounds such as the Hi-Hat sound more natural and less “sampled” when variations of the sound are played at random.

All the original rhythms have been accurately reproduced and can be combined together like the real thing.

No doubt you’ll want to use some of these rhythms within your song. Well, with Oxypops, you can record a performance and export it as a MIDI file or drag the data right onto a track in your sequencer or DAW ready to play back the sounds as recorded.

Oxypops for Kontakt 5.7.3 or higher (full version) is available for £12 GBP + VAT.
