ModernBeats has released Vintage Machinez 1 – the first of a huge collection of remastered classic drum samples for software samplers.
The Vintage Machinez Collection offers users a 21st century design of all old drum machine classics divided into 3 major categories for quick and convenient use. Categories include newly remastered Mono versions, plus unique Stereo and “Xtreme” versions specifically geared for Hip Hop’s Bounce, Dirty South, and Crunk styles.
Vintage Machinez 1 contains 36 different kits carrying a total of 1056 samples. Each kit is separately arranged into presets for easy loading into all major software samplers. Native formats include: HALion, EXS24, Kontakt, Battery, Reason’s NN-XT, SF2, and Wav. The presets give you control over velocity, duration, pitch, and all other user-defined parameters – going far beyond the capabilities of the original machines.
In addition to these added features, each kit contains identical layouts for all Mono, Stereo, and Xtreme versions, giving you the ability to swap any sample version for another within a sequence.
Drum machines in Vintage Machinez 1 include: Rhythm Ace FR-1, Electro-Harmonix 16, Electro- Harmonix 32, Linn 9000, Roland TR-66, Roland TR-505, Roland TR-606, Roland TR-626, Roland TR-707, Roland TR-727, Roland TR-808, and Roland TR-909.
A list of all samples include: kicks, snares, claps, rims, closed hats, open hats, ride cymbals, crash cymbals, toms, congos, congas, bongos, bongas, quijada, guidos, guidas, chimes, shakers, maracas, cabasas, tambourines, agogo bells, timbales, cowbells, claves, and whistles.
