Once upon a time, I had a simple little set-up that allowed me to quickly lay down tracks. There were many limitations, but I produced songs. Nowadays, I have more power than the Beatles ever dreamt of having; yet, not many songs — not many beats. My system is way too complex. By the time I get down a groove, the inspiration is often gone — goodbye! That's where Kickboxer by Darker Digital comes in. It's much more than a basic drum kit sample library; it is a fresh and fully functional step-sequencing groove machine-workstation that features high-quality TR-808 drum machine sounds, plus other analog drums and fat synth basses (300+samples). With Kickboxer, I can load up the basic patch and create beats with bass or tweak one of the 15 presets into something unique.


  • Sounds are alive and punchy.
  • Analog.
  • Useful synth bass with piano roll.
  • Interface is clean and user-friendly.
  • Step sequencer is easy-to-use and fun to program.
  • Responsive sound control (drive, cutoff, resonance, etc.).
  • Effects (distortions, tape saturation, compressor, filters, reverb, etc.) enable excellent sonic manipulation of instruments. I especially like the tube distortion and tape saturation.
  • Innovative, friendly developers.
  • Good value.


  • I have a feeling this is only the beginning. I look forward to future revisions and offerings. Having more kits and/or the ability to add user samples would be amazing.

Kickboxer is an eye pleasing and inspiring analog drum machine for Kontakt, featuring crisp and punchy TR-808 booms, dooms, and cracks! Aside from the great sound, it really helped to streamline my workflow. I'm actually creating beats, getting down grooves, and writing songs. I highly recommend Kickboxer to any eMusician, producer, film/game scorer, DJ, etc., who is looking for a super-charged 808 sound with synth bass and a slick, flexible step-sequencer. Tommy Zai gives Kickboxer two thumbs up. Thank you, Darker Digital, for creating such a cool thing! Super.
