Drums, Instruments & Textures From the Lo-Fi Sampler Series

The SP-202, 303 and 404 are fun, easy to use, "DJ" boxes from Boss, produced in the early 2000s. For a lot of us, these were our first samplers, so they're quite nostalgic. And while each unit differs in sound and features, they all offer a distinctly Lo-Fi color, achieved through various FX, sample rates and conversion that to this day still remains impossible to achieve in a DAW.

We called on our good friend and SP guru Owen Ross to help us out for this one, and together we created a diverse pack of dirty drum hits, multi-sampled acoustic instruments, grainy textures, pitched vox, aliased pads and gritty soundscapes.

Why the SPs Are Great Sampling Tools

All samples have their own personalities - pretty, clean, hi-fi, ugly, dirty, nasty - the list is infinite. One of the challenges we face when using samples is: how do we use stuff sourced from different places, but still make them sound like they belong together?

Fortunately, this is where the Dr shines. Whether it's lowering the sample rate, filtering, pitch shifting, adding vinyl FX, chorus, echo, or adding nothing at all, you can sample stuff from anywhere (and we did) and the Dr. will fit it all into one gritty, lo-fi and distinct sonic home.

The Takeaway

For the money, SPs are possibly the best hardware samplers ever made. While each model has its limitations, these limitations are part of their charm. We're in love with the idea of resampling a sound over and over again and finding the places where various effects and samples can live in noisy, lush harmony, all while never seeing a waveform display once.

But really, the best part about the Dr Sample is that they are a blank slate. You choose what you put in them, how you process those sounds, and how you play them out.

We hope you enjoy what we put in them, and that you can share part of the SPs sound and experience, however you might use this pack. Who knows, maybe you can even re-sample them yourself.
