KR-55 | retro electro blast

With its plastic beige enclosure design, the Korg KR-55 looks like a late 70s' nerd wet dream. Every single sound from this 1979 preset drum machine is just 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, 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.
