Sample From Mars has launched a Kontakt version of DX From Mars, an instrument library featuring the sounds of the Oberheim DX drum machine.

The sound of the Kontakt instrument is insane and the sequencer makes for fun, intuitive programming – I prefer both the sound and sequencing of the Kontakt instrument to the original machine (seriously).

DX From Mars for Kontakt features

  • Extensive real time control of parameters for every drum voice such as: analog tape pitch, hardware saturation, transient designer, drive, reverb, delay, EQ, parallel compression, and Analog mode.
  • 32 step 8 track sequencer with 10 real-time switchable patterns, real-time pattern length adjustment, accent, shuffle, and more.
