SP 1200 From Mars: Custom Drums & Synths is a sample pack from the warm and gritty SP-1200 sampler. Developed in 1987, this sampler is famous in a variety of genres, including hip hop, classic house and French house, with users including RZA / Wu-Tang Clan, Outkast, Mobb Deep, and Daft Punk. Its sound results from processing samples at 26.05 kHz resulting in digital aliasing, and then pushing them through an analog filter, with subtle distortion all along the signal path.
The Custom Drums & Synths bundle contains two sample packs.
- 1700 Custom Drums sampled from drum machines / vinyl / "other" drums and recorded to tape at 10 - 16 pitches each per drum hit.
