Kent Williams wrote in to let me know he has released a free set of Roland TR-727 Rhythm Composer Drum Machine samples.
I was inspired to do this set by the guys at Goldbaby — http://www.goldbaby.co.nz — who have done some obsessively loving sampling jobs on many old drum boxes, through a wide variety
The sample set includes all 15 samples recorded in these ways:
- Original: This is the TR-727 plugged directly into the audio input of an RME Hammerfall DSP+Multiface.
- TubeEQ: Processed through a Behringer Tube Ultra-Q, a 4 band Parametric EQ.
- TubeAmp-Clean: Plugged into a Peavey Classic 20 Tube Amplifier, EQ set flat. Microphone: Shure Beta 87-A, PreAmp: Art TubeMP.
- TubeAmp-Dirty: Same as above only turned up to overdrive the amplifier.
