Free Drum Samples | Tape KPR-77

Tape KPR-77

Buy Online Now Free Samples Cue In Player

Tape KPR-77 by Wave Alchemy serves up over 280 free drum samples (recorded directly to 1/4" analogue tape) from the Korg KPR-77 drum machine.

The KPR-77 was originally manufactured by Korg in the early 1980’s and was advertised as a cheaper alternative to Roland’s successful TR-606 drum machine. Surprisingly this quirky little analogue machine is capable of producing quite powerful drum sounds, we are especially fond of the toms, snares and claps!

Tape KPR-77 contains three pre-mapped drum kit patches for use with Kontakt 2, 3, & 4 and Battery 3. Each kit makes use of extensive velocity layering, round robin sample playback and choke groups which in turn capture the quirkiness and expressiveness of the original unit.

 

The Kits

  • Tape Clean - Includes 127 KPR-77 drum samples which have been recorded directly to 1/4" tape via a Studer A80 Mk1 analogue tape machine at a clean / neutral level. This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound as well as 3 velocity layers per hit!
  • Tape Saturated – Includes 127 KPR-77 drum samples which have been recorded at a hot level (providing obvious tape saturation) to 1/4" tape via a Studer A80 Mk1 analogue tape machine. This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound as well as 3 velocity layers per hit!
  • Driven Kit – Includes 27 KPR-77 drum samples which have been recorded and processed through a variety of Wave Alchemy’s outboard studio collection!

The best part of all is this sample library is 100% free! All you have to do is login to gain access to the download link!

 

Round Robin

Due to the KPR-77’s analogue nature, subtle differences in tone are heard in the sound each time a drum is triggered. This means that no two hits coming from the KPR-77 will sound exactly the same, which in turn makes the overall sound a lot less static and instead, more vibrant and real.

Becuase of this we felt it necessary to record up to 5 'round robin' samples and 3 velocity layers per sound - to help capture the 'movement' created by random analogue behaviour!
