Samples From Mars has released Modded 505 From Mars, a sample pack that brings the sounds of a modified Roland TR-505 drum machine.

The pack includes a variety of 505 samples, both clean as well as pitched and bitcrushed.

The 505 is a charming little drum machine, kind of like a 707 and 727 in one box, with a great little sequencer to boot. And, as a contentious vintage synth explorer review proves, you’ll find WAY more lovers of the 505 than haters – among them heavyweights like Vince Clark, Aphex Twin, and plenty of Chicago House classics.

But our 505 is no ordinary drum machine – it’s been modified with a bizarre, circuit-bending knob that tunes all of the drums simultaneously – either into totally useable, tuned versions of the original sounds, or mangled into oblivion, with crazy digital aliasing and unbeatable artifacts. This is not your ordinary 505!
