STIX305 | rawtronix
The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s.
This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.
The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain.
As the Stix305 features few sounds, I recorded them at various compression, gain and eq settings and made several takes of each sound in order to get some subtle variations that your round-robin soft sampler will love for sure.
There are also a dozen of loops plus a more punchy kit, processed using some strong tube distortion.
As always with WaveShaper sample packs, you can decide to use the free kit or buy the "pro" one :
- The "pro" pack uses 24-bit/48kHz, stereo Wav files (54 one shot samples + 13 loops in the Pro pack).
- The free pack is made out of standard 44,1kHz-16-bit mono Wav files and features less samples (09 one-shot samples in the free pack).
