Bedroom Producers Blog has released a freeware VST/AU plugin bundle, BPB Cassette Drums, featuring three VST/AU plugins, based on the sounds of Roland’s TR-808, TR-606 and TR-909 drum machines.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
BPB Cassette Drums, a freeware drum machine VST/AU plugin bundle based on our popular Cassette 606, Cassette 808 and Cassette 909 drum sample packs.
BPB Cassette Drums is a freeware VST and AU plugin bundle consisting of three individual plugins: Cassette 606 VST, Cassette 808 VST and Cassette 909 VST. The included plugins are compatible with any PC and Mac based digital audio workstation capable of hosting VST or AU plugins. Both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems are supported.
Each plugin contains a set of three drum kits: Clean, Warm and Hot. The Clean kits are based on the raw, unprocessed recordings of Roland TR series drum machines, whereas the Warm and Hot kits feature the saturated drum hits that were re-sampled from an audio cassette deck, adding a layer of noise and warmth to the original sounds.
The plugins are available as a free download from the BPB site.
