For those who are in the position to be staying at home during these challenging times, Novation wants to help make it as easy as possible for you to stay creative.

So, for a one-off Sound Collective special, Novation has partnered up with AudioThing to bring you the SR-88 plug-in for free as a limited-time giveaway for all members.

AudioThing’s SR-88 is a sample-based plug-in emulation of the Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88, a rare analogue drum machine from the ’80s. The instrument features five classic analog sounds: kick, snare, hi hat 1, hi hat 2, and cymbal, which can be pitched, panned or mixed independently. You can shape the sound with the low-pass filter (zero delay feedback), overdrive, compressor and reverb.

The sequencer lets you easily build patterns, then flip each track’s sequence using the ‘random’ function. The result is limitless combinations and unusual patterns, which bring new creative aspects to your songs. Sequences can be dragged and dropped to your DAW/host, making it easy to build ideas quickly.

The AudioThing SR-88 offer expires on April 27th, 2020, and is running in addition to the Serato Sample LE plugin already available as part of Sound Collective.
