All audio content is provided in 24-bit WAV format, with additional kits and preset files for a variety of popular digital audio workstations and samplers. The sounds were sampled to tape through an API 512 preamp. 727 From Mars includes a master drum rack for Ableton Live, 40 instrument presets for Kontakt, Logic, and Reason, as well as ten custom drum kits for Maschine, Battery, and AKAI MPC.

The original Roland TR-727 drum machine is a “Latin percussion” version of its older brother -the Roland TR-707. Although neither of the two reached the fame of Roland’s classic 808 and 909 instruments, the products in the 707 series are known for their clean and punchy sound. Samples From Mars took these original drums one step further, applying a bit of tape saturation for an added layer of crunch.

The coolest part of the 727 From Mars library is the set of sounds that were resampled from an analog tape machine. The tape was played at 30 different speeds, providing 30 chromatically pitched variations of each drum. As a result, every original TR-727 drum sound can be played as a chromatic instrument. This opens a world of possibilities for expanding the range of the original TR-727 and playing the 727 From Mars library as more than just a percussive machine.
