Studio Brootle has announced the release of a free collection of free overdriven Roland TR-909 drum samples with added reverbing ‘warehouse’ rumble sub basses made from processing kick reverbs.

The pack includes a kit with 15 one shots, alongside a selection of loops.

I wanted to make a kit for myself that is heavy on the low end. There is also a rumble-sub made from processing a low tom (instead of a kick) with reverb and saturation. I made another 12 loops of kick and rumbles (with individual kick and rumble samples too), which are all included.

I’m a big fan of the raw Roland tr-909 sound, especially overdriving it hot into a mixer. I also like to bounce rumbles and save them with the other drum samples as I like the sound of a cavernous reverbing kick, but setting up and tweaking the reverb/distortion/compressor effects chains each time you make a track takes ages. Bouncing them as samples makes making tracks much quicker in the DAW. I like to load them on the Korg Volca Sample too.

The sample pack is free to download at the Studio Brootle website.
