[SYST003] Marc Romboy – Hands on TR-808
I always wished to create a sample pack featuring only 808 sounds and grooves. Despite the goal to record all single sounds in the best sonic and most purest way I was keen to manipulate the sounds with different elements like the Shadowhill compressor, the legendary 80s Bbit samplers Mirage and LINN-9000 or the Knas spring reverb delay." (Marc Romboy)
The result is utterly astonishing. The number of manipulated exciting sounds which don't sound like an 808 anymore is infinite and flabbergasting at the same time and improve that actually limited analogue sound sources can be endless exploited. Apart from that Marc programmed plenty of different grooves you can instantly drag and drop into your sample player or clip view. Sky is the limit, ranging from classical electro grooves a la Afrika Bambata to Romboy typical 4/4 drum grids, to even broken experimental beats and of course Chicago-jackin' old-school house rhythms. The recordings have been directed with the kind support of the popular studio engineer Bjarki Jonsson from Reykjavik, Iceland, Steffen Muller, Marc's friend and mastering director courtesy of Custom-Audio-Germany and Jurgen Driessen, sound designer, co-director of Systematic Sounds.
Marc Romboy – Hands on TR-808 is a new library featuring over 1,7 GB of TR-808 Drum loops and single sample sounds which, on the one hand have been carefully created and processed thru various analogue studio gear, and on the other hand don't sound like an 808 anymore.
Ranging from classical electro grooves to Romboy typical 4/4 drum grids, to even broken experimental beats and of course Chicago-jackin' old-school house rhythms.
