We brought you news of this a couple of weeks ago and now Wave Alchemy have been in touch to tell us that Transistor Revolution, an accurate re-creation of the iconic TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines for Kontakt 5 Player, is now available. Here's what a Wave Alchemy spokesperson had to say...

"Using a custom GUI, 22,000 samples and Kontakt 5's advanced sampling engine with over 100,000 lines of unique script, Transistor Revolution faithfully captures the tone, immediacy and groove of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 transistor rhythm machines. Why 22,000 samples you might ask? To give an example of the detail involved in the sampling of each instrument, the Revolution-909 Bass Drum alone uses 9318 unique sounds to faithfully recreate the 909 Bass Drum sound. Each of the 4 knobs on the Revolution 909 Bass Drum control panel scans smoothly through each and every sample in real-time."
