Zenhiser has released CR78 – The Machine, a sample library featuring the sounds of the Roland CR-78 CompuRhythm.

Zenhiser CR78 - The Machine

As you know by now, we are big fans of the 80s and thought of how we could supply a drum machine series that was a little different from the rest, and this is how it panned out. “CR78 – The Machine” has all the CR78 drum sounds you’ll need, recorded perfectly from the original machine and supplied in both flat and outboard tweaked versions. We’ve used the best vintage and digital software / hardware to polish the drum sounds and show them in their light for today’s use but included the originals as well to supply that authentic classic Roland CR78 sound.

On top of that why have a sample pack that just supplies the drum sounds, what about the beats! Well “CR78 – The Machine” also delivers two very different collections of drum beats, “The Classic Folder” delivering the essential drum beats that the CR78 are so famously known for, and “The Modern Folder”, a perfect collection of today’s beats created solely using the CR78 drum sounds and supplied with multiple takes including with kick, without kick and stripped own versions. All the classic and modern drum beats also include bpm information within the file name for fast use.

CR78 – The Machine is available to purchase for $24.99 AUD.
