Cluster Sound has released HR-16B, a free drum pack for Ableton Live based on the vintage Alesis HR-16B.
Released in the late '80s by Alesis, the HR-16 was a 16-bit drum machine conceived to offer to the masses the same quality of premium machines like the TR-909 or LM-1. And in fact, in a world characterized by small sets of 8-bit drum samples, the "high sample rate" HR-16 quickly called the attention of everyday musicians.
Shortly after its launch, Alesis released the HR-16B model, sharing the same technology of its predecessor but with completely renowned sounds designed for techno, punk and electronic music. Nowadays the HR-16B sounds are used by Orbital, The Grid, Autechre, Sub Dub and the Stereo MC's.
