Free Roland TR-808 Sample Kit, No Effects Added

Soquelle has created a free sample kit from our Roland TR-808 drum machine and E-Mu SP-1200 sampler. Get the classic TR-808 bass, snare, clap and hi hats!   

What makes this Roland TR-808 sample kit different from all the rest? 

These samples were captured first through an E-mu SP-1200. They were then recorded through an Api Channel Strip into an Antelope Orion AD/DA. No effects, eq or processing was applied to the samples other than the natural sound of the TR-808, SP-1200 and Api preamps. So not only will you get the awesome TR-808 sound with the 12-bit crunch of the SP-1200, you're also getting the sweet warm analog flavor of an Api preamp.
