Samples From Mars has released Drumulator From Mars, a sample pack featuring the sounds of the 12 bit drum machine created in 1983 by Emu Systems.

The pack includes 500 classic Drumulator and MPC Drumulator hits, with pre-made kits for easy use.

After achieving success with the Emulator, Emu took aim at creating a much more affordable Linn LM1. And while the results certainly didn’t sound like an LM1, the Drumulator nonetheless had a successful run in the 80s, and is featured on countless productions, from Patrick Cowley to Depeche Mode (some people say it’s the sound of Depeche Mode from ’83-’84).

And while it doesn’t exactly do Linn, it does its own thing quite well: crunchy and lo-fi, 12bit 80’s drums.
