Machine Drums To Tape
808, 909, 606 Recorded to Cassette Tape
Like a nice stereo image? Low noise? Good dynamic range? Tough!
Here's a Roland TR8 played through a guitar multi effects and slammed into a Yamaha 4 Track cassette recorder!
Feel the glory of transformer distortion, tape compression and loads of glitchy, distorted, sweet and ambient loops.
A selection of loops are free, and the hits come in Clean (recorded via USB from the TR-8) and Dirty (slammed super hard into the tape machine) versions.
The loops are culled from various live takes, so emphasis is very much on musicality rather than a straight loop or construction kit style.
Because the TR8 does such a good job of emulating the originals you get a variation and "live" feel that static hits can't really convey.
This is further enhanced with tape saturation, distortion and live tweaking of effects.
