WaveShaper releases two new vintage drumsample packs : KR55 Retro Electro Punch & Plasticid MkII. Both drumsample packs are available right now for download on his website :waveshaper.12r.org


With its plastic beige enclosure design, the KR-55 looks like a late 70s' nerd wet dream. Every single sound from this 1979 preset drum machine is perfect : snappy snare, punchy bass drum, electronic hi-hats and exotic percussions with a retro flavour.
Heavily used by early electro bands, its raw sound just fit in any mix and any genre.

This sample pack offers 7 kits, from clean and transparent to punchy and saturated. You will also find some spring reverb and analogue delay infused samples for even more vintage flavor.

As always with WaveShaper, you can decide to use the free pack or buy the "pro" one :

- The pro pack gathers 142 one-shot samples, gathered into 7 kits. All samples are in WAV, 24bit 48khz stereo. It costs only 3,90$.

- The free pack contains 11 one shot sounds taken from the "Boost" kit (with no variation and a couple of percussion samples missing) in 16bit, 44,1khz mono.

Plasticid MkII takes the previous Plasticid drumsample pack one step further, with 120 new samples gathered in 15 kits.

This new version aims at coloration and expands the sonic palette of the DR-110 (the last analogue drum machine made by Roland, very reminiscent to the much praised Tr-808 and Tr-606), processing it using vintage hardware to shape it up nicely.

The cymbals are spitting, the bassdrum is kicking, and the snare and claps tones ranging from dark to bright make each kit acting like a rebirth for the mighty DR-110 !
Great care has been taken about recording a semi open hat sample for even more expression.

- The Plasticid MkII drumsample pack costs 3.40$, the "classic" kit is still available. Existing customers can upgrade to MkII version at no cost.

- A free demo kit is available at http://waveshaper.12r.org/
