SM101 takes us on an analogue adventure with 10 hardware-sourced drum kits inspired by the sounds of synthwave. Fusing elements of 80s pop, new wave and electro, these authentic drum kits are packed with iconic drum machine sounds and paired with classic MIDI drum grooves to ensure instant 80s inspiration.
Totalling 120 killer drum one-shots from authentic 80s machines such as the Linn Drum LM-2, Sequential Circuits Drum Tracks, Roland TR-505 and 707 - which have all then been given extra crunch and punch via the Ensoniq Mirage and Akai MPC 60 samplers - each sound and drum kit has been curated to offer maximum sonic cohesion.
The hits have then been curated into 10 powerful drum palettes for Ableton Drum Rack, Maschine, Battery, Kong and EXS24 and supplied with 101 retro MIDI drum rhythms to get your groove going instantly.
If you’re inspired by the 80s, serious about synthwave or nostalgic for new wave then this is the place to start your next track!
