Tomislav Zlatic of Bedroom Producers Blog has released Cassette 606, a free drum sample pack containing raw and tape processed Roland TR-606 samples.
Each drum hit of a modded Roland TB-606 drum machine (Exfade mod) was recorded at different pitches, (something that wouldn’t be possible with a factory TR-606). These raw samples were then recorded to a Cr02 cassette tape at two different gain settings, resulting in a set of overdriven drum hits with a lovely lo-fi character.
The final product features three drum kits, for a total of 128 samples in 24-bit WAV format. The pack also includes mappings for the Poise drum sampler.
- 128 audio samples in total (24-bit WAV format).
- 72 clean Roland TR-606 one shot samples.
- 56 tape processed Roland TR-606 one shot samples.
- 3 Poise drum kits (DKT format).
