HelloSamples has announced the release of Raw Series 5: Roland CR-78, a punchy, organic and vintage drum sound pack that pays homage to a classic

The CR-78 is our preferred drum-dedicated vintage machine, and this is our homage in form of a sound pack!

We have obviously maintained our “raw” philosophy by carefully sampling the drum machine through top class preamps (Neve 1073 to UA2192 converters). No further compression or processing at first. But… Since this machine is limited in sound possibilities, we decided to re-pitch, filter, tape saturate and layer them to offer a more diverse and playable sample pack staying true to the original.

The original CR-78 built-in loops were funky as hell, with a care for sound levels and groove not found on another machine. So we have also sampled the loops, at different tempos, clean, and also saturating them with tape and a ladder LP filter.

Raw Series 5 features

  • 489 total samples including 57 different sounds x 5 round robin (285 rr samples) and 204 extra samples reprocessed.
  • 630 Loops including 210 clean loops, 210 tape processed loops, 210 filter saturated loops.
  • 24 bits / 44.1 Khz audio files.
  • Presets for Ableton Live, Maschine and Kontakt.

The sample pack costs 15 EUR. For a limited time only, you can use coupon code COMPU78 at the checkout to save 20% on your purchase.
