Free Samples Made With Roger Linn Drum Machines

Boxed Ear has announced the release of Tempest vs MPC60, which they tell us is a free sample pack made with two of Roger Linn's most coveted drum machines, the Dave Smith Instruments Tempest and the Akai MPC60.

Two classic drum machines, both designed by "the father of the drum machine" Roger Linn. The MPC60 is a sampler first released in 1988 and is considered one of the major contributors to the development of hip hop music. The Tempest is a modern analogue/digital hybrid drum machine released in 2011.

A Boxed Ear spokesperson told Sonic State, "We thought it would be fun to bring them both together by synthesizing pure analog drum sounds on the Tempest and sampling them into the MPC60 for that tasty 12bit digital crunch."

Pricing and Availability:
Tempest vs MPC60 is free and is available now from the Boxed Ear website.
