Bedroom Producers Blog has released a free sample library, featuring the sounds of the classic Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer.
To create the free sample library, a vintage 909 was sampled and then processed by recording to Cr02 cassette to add tape saturation and resampling. The result is a collection of 155 carefully edited one shot samples of the TR-909 drum machine, with 71 clean samples and 84 tape processed hits (these are organized into two separate folders, according to the gain setting).

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. Continue reading

Livid Instruments has released another in its series of free Ableton Live packs, featuring the deep sounds of the Moog Minitaur analog synthesizer.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
The Moog Minitaur seems about as simple as a synth can be. A couple oscillators, some modulators, a classic filter. Done, right? Not really. This recreation of the classic Taurus bass synth has been updated for the modern synth geek, with several parameters under the hood that can be tweaked with MIDI, creating a maze of possibilities true to its namesake’s legend.
AfroDJMac (Brian Funk) has released his 3rd annual Ableton Live Christmas Instrument, the Jingle Bells Collection. Continue reading
