TR-808 Drum Machine Samples

Here's all the details from Wave Alchemy...
The classic TR-808 Drum Machine has massively influenced electronic music production for over 30 years. Its place in the vaults of electronic music history is clear! The famous "Sub-boom" from this legendary device has made it one of the most popular sampled drum machines to date.
Wave Alchemy's 808 Drums faithfully captures the "808 sound" by using a careful sampling process born out of shear passion for the original instrument. Each Drum sample has been recorded using a unique, high-end signal chain designed to capture the depth and character of the original machine. Further outboard processing, precision editing and creative sample layering brings these classic TR-808 samples firmly into the present giving you a "modern take on a classic sound".
In true wave alchemy style the TR-808 has been lovingly sampled with great care taken to capture the tone of the equipment used. All drum samples have been recorded through an API 512 pre-amp with many of the sounds featuring different saturation settings from outboard devices such as the Cranesong Hedd, Empirical Labs Fatso, Distressor and Thermionic Culture Vulture.
808 Drums is ideal for producers of house, techno, hip-hop, minimal, down tempo and everything in-between.
