MR11 is a faithful recreation of the early 80s Yamaha MR10 analog drum machine. The original machine offered some unique sounds, and also a "Tune" control that altered their tone and pitch. The Tune control has been sampled through its full travel, allowing the user to dial in exactly the sounds they would have created on the original -- but on a per-kit-piece basis, which would have been impossible on the hardware unit.
The kick drum and snare are the stand-out sounds. The effects block includes bit reduction, tube saturation, drive distortion and an output compressor / limiter, and kit pieces can be panned, adjusted in level, and Tuned individually.
- All the sounds of the original MR10 captured through the full travel of the Tune control.
- Kit pieces individually adjustable for level, pan and Tune.
- Velocity Retrofit button allows incoming velocity to control the Tune function instead of the front panel pot (for humanized beats).
- Bitcrusher, Tube saturation, Distortion and Compression / Limiting all available.
Price: £4.95. Requires Kontakt versions 4.2.3 and later.
