Ten Vintage synthesizers expertly programmed to create a ground-breaking Drum Library, our most comprehensive and intricately designed to date. Incorporating all-time classic analogue machines with modern High-End processing hardware and production techniques...

Introducing Synth Drums, offering over 5900 cutting edge, totally unique drum samples and percussive hits, each carefully crafted by hand, on a sound-by-sound basis.

Synths used in the creation of Synth Drums:

  • Roland Jupiter 8
  • Roland System-100 (101, 102, 104)
  • Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2
  • Sequential Circuits Pro One
  • Korg MS-20
  • ARP Odyssey MK1
  • Moog Minimoog Model D
  • Oberheim OB8
  • Roland Juno 106
  • Roland SH-09

We’ve designed this library to be as flexible as possible: as well as the extensive processed section, the unprocessed source samples are also included as they were originally recorded - straight-from-the-synth. A third section includes selected samples bounced through special processes to add character, tone, warmth and punch, using Vinyl and Reel-to-Reel 1/4 inch Tape with multiple saturation levels.

We feel that this attention to detail will translate into a unique, creative and useful addition to any electronic music producer's toolkit.
