All the 32 sounds from the 4 drumkits available for
the vintage Cheetah SpecDrum drum sampler.
The Cheetah SpecDrum was a poor man’s Linn
alternative – an 8-bit, 3-channel sample player that
bolted onto the back of a Sinclair ZX Spectrum
computer. Both sequencer program and drum samples
had to fit in 48KB’s of RAM, so no wonder long
cymbal crashes are in short supply! Despite that,
the sounds are surprisingly good.
This set was captured using the Spectaculator 7
Spectrum emulator which includes an emulation of the
Cheetah SpecDrum hardware.
SpecDrum for Kontakt 4.1 or higher is available as a
free download from the Pethu website.
