Learn more about the plugin in our mini-review below and scroll down the page to sign up for the freebie deal.
AudioThing SR-88 – Overview
SR-88 is a retro drum machine with five analog drum sounds and a built-in step sequencer. The plugin is loosely based on the SoundMaster Memory Rhythm SR-88 analog drum machine from 1981.
AudioThing’s take on the original SR-88 adds a step sequencer, drum editing controls, a set of built-in effects (distortion, reverb, compressor), and a low-pass resonant filter. This is a high-quality ZDF filter module.
Each drum channel features decay and pitch controls, a stereo pan slider, and an output volume knob. A master gain knob is also included in the mixer section.
If you’re a fan of retro analog drum sounds, you will instantly fall in love with AudioThing’s SR-88. It delivers warm thumpy kicks and punchy analog snares, a pair of noisy hi-hats, and with one of the quirkiest-sounding cymbals out there. Keep the drums clean or apply the included compression and overdrive effects to add more punch and grit.
Pair the SR-88 drum machine with the recently released Surrealistic MG-1 Plus freeware synthesizer by Cherry Audio freeware, and you’ll feel like the year is 1981 all over again.
That said, I think that SR-88’s coolest feature is the 32-step sequencer. Use it to build retro drum loops on the fly and save presets for later use. The sequences can be exported to the DAW via drag and drop. Most importantly, you can randomize any drum channel for instant inspiration.
Visit the SR-88 product page on AudioThing’s website to hear the drum machine in action. There are multiple sound demos and videos for you to check out.
AudioThing provided fifteen drum patterns and fifteen drum kits to help new users get started with the SR-88. The software is available in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for digital audio workstations on PC and Mac (64-bit only).
