Rhythm From Mars is a sample pack of the Roland Rhythm 700, also known as the TR 700. Released in 1972 (the same year Roland was founded), the Rhythm 700 was one of Roland's a first products--a rare, 3ft tall analog rhythm box.

Samples From Mars recorded the patterns from the Rhythm 700 through an API preamp and SSL gate to tape, then isolated the individual drum samples. The kicks were also slowed down and processed through a Moog lowpass filter to get a deeper sound.

The drums were then recorded into an Emu SP-1200, re-pitched, and recorded back to tape. Finally, some samples were saturated through a Roland Re-201 Space Echo.

The sample pack includes individual drum samples, loops of the original drum patterns from the Rhythm 700, and instruments made from the pitched drum samples.

The sample pack comes with all of the following formats:
