Product Overview

Info: The Boss DR-550 was released in 1989 as an affordable alternative to the more advanced Roland R-8 drum machine. Though light on features, the DR-550 made up for this with a good selection of punchy electronic drum samples. The MK-iii drum sample kit includes samples recorded from a DR-550 Mk-ii digital drum machine. The Doepfer Dark Energy Mk1 is a tabletop semi-modular analog synthesizer. While recording, its steep low pass resonant filter was used to add high-frequency harmonics to the drum samples. Technical: The sound samples were recorded through a Focusrite ISA One preamp for additional gain. The signal was converted from analog to digital via an RME HDSP 9632. To maintain the original relative volumes of each sound and limit the artifacts of digital processing, no normalizing or digital gain was applied to the signal at any time. Each individual sample was originally recorded with long, medium, and short decay settings. In order to provide a kit that is both efficient to navigate and effective, only the sounds with significant audible difference from one setting to the next were selected .
