Wave Alchemy have announced the release of Transistor Revolution, a re-creation of the iconic TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines for Kontakt 5 Player.
Using a custom GUI, 22,000 samples and Kontakt 5's advanced sampling engine with over 100,000 lines of unique script, Transistor Revolution aims to faithfully capture 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.
Available in Standalone, VST, AU and RTAS instrument formats for Windows and Mac OS X via the free Kontakt Player from Native Instruments. Full version of Kontakt is NOT required.
