TR-LAX - Drum Machines
TR-LAX - Drum Machines
Get the six famous Roland drum machines of the 1980's - including the TR-808 and TR-909. Served with a twist of modern LA.
We took the six classic "TR" drum machines. Brought them to a Hollywood hit factory responsible for numerous Billboard top-10 hits (by artists like Jason Derulo and Selena Gomez). Here, we ran every sound of every machine through all the same individual processing and treatment that a top-5 hit would get.
The result is the last "TR" sample pack you'll ever need.
The pack contains
This is your chance to make a ghost producer of the stars become your ghost producer too.
The pack covers the full sonic palette of all six classic TR drum machines - processed to perfection with the best hardware money can buy. Specifically:
TR-505 + LAX magic: 34 samples
TR-606 + LAX magic: 14 samples
TR-707 + LAX magic: 26 samples
TR-727 + LAX magic: 31 samples
TR-808 + LAX magic: 46 samples
TR-909 + LAX magic: 28 samples
All sounds come as .wav files and can be imported into any music production software. A link to download the pack will be Emailed to you immediately after purchase. File size: 65 mb.
DEMO: The original six machines vs. TR-LAX
Below is a 1:1 audio comparison of the original "TR" drum machines vs. the TR-LAX pack. No additional processing was used (except for some gentle peak limiting on both tracks).
Adding more magic to the classics
The six Roland TR-X0Xs of the 1980's are arguably the most legendary drum machines ever produced. From the pop and hip hop legacy of the TR-808 to the dance legacy of the TR-909. This also makes them some of the most sampled instruments ever. So why do it all over again?
Because sampling the machines is only half the job done - the real magic comes with the processing.
Our curator for this pack is a mix engineer and ghost producer at a Hollywood hit factory responsible for a double-digit number of Billboard top-10 hits, including a recent number one. For contractual reasons he remains anonymous - as any ghost producer would.
We asked our curator to create a sound pack for Analogue Candy with the following challenge:
"Take the six classic "TR" drum machines - and treat the sounds like you were mixing for a number one hit".
And so he did. Every individual sound of all six machines was processed separately, and carefully, through the best hardware money can buy. Here, the drum hits were treated with all the dirty pop tricks and cheats of our curator - to sound as crisp, punchy and modern as ever.
For most sounds - and especially kicks and snares - several versions were created to present a full palette of what these machines are capable of. For instance, the pack contains nine 808 kicks. Also, our curator has given you the choice between wet and dry versions (with or without reverb) for most of the sounds.
