Another treat for drum machine loving people. A few weeks after the release of their great Drum Machines 02 sample pack, Wave Alchemy have decided to share this brand new TR-606 sample pack for free! And it’s not just a random little sample pack, but a full-blown gem with 290 samples inside, all of which were recorded through an API preamp. Yummy.
The Kontakt patches even come with multiple round robin variations (!), for the ultimate analog feel. Here is what WA have to say about this:
Due to the TR-606’s analogue nature, subtle differences in tone are heard in the sound each time a drum is triggered. This means that no two hits coming from the 606 will sound exactly the same, which in turn makes the overall sound a lot less static and instead, more vibrant and real. This is the reason why we felt it necessary to record up to 8 “round robin” samples per sound, to help capture the “movement” created by random analogue behaviour!
Apart from the API preamp, a Thermionic Culture Vulture MV, Moog Voyager’s stereo filters, and a number of outboard vintage EQs were also used to sculpt the sound of these samples. A generous free pack indeed. Hurry up and grab your download, and make sure to also check out the Drum Machines 02 pack which recently recieved a 10/10 mark from Waveformless!♥ :
