Classic Drum Machine Sampled


Boxed Ear has sampled a Roland CompuRythm CR-78 though a Universal Audio 1176 compressor to give it a little more analog magic. Included in the resulting free pack are 17 single hit WAV files and 27 RX2 Recycle loops.
Here's what Boxed Ear says about the CR78,
"The Roland CompuRythm CR-78 was released in 1978. It's a beautiful piece of design with a sound to match. They don't make them like this anymore.
The CR-78 became a favourite amongst pop and electronic artists for it's unique sound. Famous songs which use it include Orchestral Manoeuvres in The Dark's 'Enola Gay' and Blondie's 'Heart of Glass'. The CR-78 was also one of the first drum machines to offer user programmable sequences alongside the standard Waltz, Shuffle and Samba presets."
