Rhythmic Robot

Rhythmic Robot Audio is a small enterprise sampling vintage hardware to make Kontakt instruments. Our mission is to take the synths, drum machines and keyboards of yesterday and bring them sparking and crackling back to life on our laboratory bench – before capturing their essence, bottling it in sampled form, and sending it out for you to play with. From classic hardware of the past to unique sonic creations built from humming walls of old signal generators, if you're looking for obscure and unusual signature sounds, you've come to the right place.

Our virtual instruments are built on meticulously recorded 24-bit samples of authentic old kit, taken to the next level with custom interfaces, clever scripting and tons of added functionality. We love our dusty old boxes, and hope you will too.

Rhythmic Robot Audio... Kontakt instruments with character!
