Transistor Revolution by Wave Alchemy is a virtual analogue drum machine for Kontakt Player inspired by the classic TR-808 and TR-909 electronic drum machines of the 1980s.

Using a custom GUI, 22,000 samples and Kontakt 5's advanced sampling engine with over 100,000 lines of unique script, Transistor Revolution aims to capture the tone, immediacy and groove of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 transistor rhythm machines.

Each drum sound in Transistor Revolution has been carefully recorded using a 3 inch solid core cable connected to a transformer balanced Radial JDI and brought to line level with an AMS/NEVE 1073 preamp. To retain the full frequency response and dynamics of these instruments the peak level of each drum sound has been matched and recorded at 24-bit 96kHz using mastering grade NEVE designed conversion.

  1. Revolution 808 - Bass Drum.
