SOUL SISTERS PACK | three of a perfect pair
This WaveShaper drumsample pack gathers sounds from 3 rare analogue drum machines from the early 80s : The Boss DR-55, Amdek RMK-100 and SoundMaster SR-88.
Built at the same time, these three small retro boxes share similar features, but they each have their unique character and a different sound.
The Boss DR-55 features a rimshot sound and a tone control. It was used by a bunch of artists in the past decades for its signature sound despite the few sounds and parameters.
The Soundmaster SR-88 has a very delicate, soft, analogue sound and is perfect for electro tracks or sweet retro songs.
The Amdek RMK-100 is the rarest of the bunch. It was sold as a DIY project, which makes it very hard to find. The sound is the rawest of the three, and the hi-hats are a true gem for any acid and electro lover.
I recorded them with the usual care, through a custom chain of gentle tube compression and a tube preamp. I made several takes in order to capture the subtle analogue variations of each sound, and also processed them with a vintage hardware eq (and some distortion on some kits, to make them dirtier and punchier). Any round-robin able softsampler will love to be fed with these analogue sounds !
