Forgotten Keys has launched Seventy7, a virtual simulation of an old drum machine from the 1970s.

Following up on the recent Oxypops Mini Pops 7 instrument, this new Kontakt library brings the sounds of the Rhythm77/TR-77 analog rhythm machine from Roland.

The TR-77 itself evolved from the Rhythm Ace and its original purpose was to provide rhythm to home or professional organists.

The sounds in Seventy7 are 24 Bit resolution samples with up to 8 round-robin variations depending on the sound. Great care was taken in recording and editing the sounds to get the best quality possible.

All the original rhythms have been accurately reproduced and can be combined together like the real thing. Seventy7 makes it easy to include these rhythms in your own music with its built-in performance recorder. Record a few bars of a rhythm then either save it as a MIDI file or drag it straight onto a track in your sequencer or DAW ready for playback.

Seventy7 is available from Kontakt Hub for £10 GBP + VAT. Requires full version of Kontakt 5.7.3 or higher.
