Hi everybody,

Could someone please help met out here with the drumkit(s) that is/are being used in this song?

Is it a Linndrum? Or a 707? It sounds familiair but can't place kick, toms, snare, claps, tambourine exactly.

Thanks in advance!

I would put money on it being multiple sample based drum machines. Or even custom samples from many drum machines loaded into a sampler.

There are many “mega libraries” of pretty much every old drum machine ever. I would recommend grabbing one of those. If you have battery it covers most of the old drum machines pretty well in its factory library.

It doesn't seem to be a TR-707 to me, but i could be wrong.
Many, many drum machines from the 80s had similar samples, so it could be a Yamaha RX, or even a Kawai R50e.
It seems that the sounds are heavily compressed too, so it doesn't help finding their origin (back in the days, as rom memory was expensive and bitdepth encoding quite low, the dynamic and lenght of a sample could help spotting the right drum machine).

I'm 90% sure we're dealing with a Linndrum here. The snare gave it away. Also the kick, tambourine, and cabasa.

It sounds like workstations drums from something like a Korg Triton

The song is from 1987. Triton was released in 1999.

It's a Linndrum.

Even if you knew exactly which Machine it was you´ll never beat these amazing "Lead Vocals" ;-)

BTW the Toms remind me (some Time ago!) of one of these Drum-Pad Machines - was it Casio? Sony?
