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
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.
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 24bit/48khz, stereo Wav files.
The free pack is made out of standard
Wav files and features less samples (09
one-shot samples in the free pack, 54 one shot
samples + 13 loops in the Pro pack).
MR-10 is a
compact analogue drum machine from the early
80's made by Yamaha. It features 5 pads that you
can hit to trigger the sounds and some cheesy
tango & waltz presets.
This tiny grey box has a rather characteristic
sound, with a deep kick (somewhat reminiscent of
the infamous 909) and a quite unique snare. The
knob lets you shape the sound of the kit, and it
is very efficient on the toms and snare. It
sounds 200% analogue, but not like the usual
suspects, so this carefully recorded WaveShaper
pack will fit in any of your music productions,
from electro pop to doom exotica !
As always, great care has been taken to keep the
original sound alive and kicking with a high
headroom, but some subtle tube coloring and
compression assures you to make this kit sound
gathers 5 tone variations from each of the 7
individual sounds, in stereo, 24bit, 48khz wav
files. It costs only 1,40$.
The free kit
lets you play with one full sample kit (7
sounds, mono, 16bit/44.1khz wav files).

famous doll, the Synsonics
is a black analogue drum machine with 4 big pads to hit, so
you can program your own beats or play them on the fly.
sound is very electronic (white noise power !), and there is a "tone"
knob to shape the sounds. It can somewhat remind the Simmons drum
synths from that era, in a more primitive form. It is a lovely piece
of gear which doesn't sound at all like the others (think
"Barbie meets PanSonic" to get a better idea).
