The Roland TR-808 is a classic and needs no introduction, but what does it sound like when processed through spring reverb, tape echo and distortion hardware units?
We sampled the in-house Roland 808 at Soundgas in the UK through their vintage Calrec console. Once we had selected the voices for the Dust Palace kit, we then spent days sampling each hit through our collection of analogue effects units, coming back in to Ableton through Neve 1073 pre-amps. Capturing each effects unit at four stages of input gain, from 25% to 100% wet/dry balance, creating 384 unique drum samples.
Creating Ableton Live 10 presets for each kit was the next step, arranging the samples in an intuitive manner based around our custom FX Rack macro controls. To top it off we asked our friend and professional touring drummer Andrew Marshall (Billie Eilish), to create a series of loops and presets for the 808 pack, with a total of 60 exclusive loops that you won't find anywhere else. Our 808 pack is a unique set of sounds, ready for use in your next production or in your next live show.
All one-shot samples and loops also included as 16bit 44.1k files suitable for use directly on the Roland SPD-SX.
