606 Drums by Wave Alchemy serves up 290 drum samples
from Roland’s sought-after TR-606 drum machine. The
samples included have been lovingly recorded through
an API pre-amp with many sounds boasting multiple
round robin variations, accent and velocity layers!
606 Drums contains four pre-mapped drum kit patches
for use with Kontakt 2, 3, & 4 and Battery 3. Each
kit makes extensive use of multiple velocity layers,
round robin sample playback and choke groups to
create truly expressive sample instruments.
- Driven Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum samples
which have been recorded and processed through a
Thermionic Culture Vulture MV to give a
harmonically rich and extremely colourful sound.
This kit includes 5 round robin samples per
- Dry Kit – includes a whooping 168 TR-606
drum samples which have been recorded clean
through an API 512c pre-amp. This kit has been
recorded in 96K, 24-bit and includes 8 round
robin samples per sound as well as 3 accent /
velocity layers per hit!
- Stereo FX Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum
samples which have been recorded and abused
through a Moog Voyager’s stereo filtering
capabilities whilst being controlled by a ton of
MoogerFoogers and various other CV gear! This
kit sounds almost totally unrecognisable to the
true TR-606 sound…
- Warm Kit – includes 40 TR-606 drum samples
which have been treated to generous amounts of
vintage compression, EQ and saturation from a
range of Wave Alchemy’s extensive outboard
collection! This kit includes 5 round robin
samples per sound.
