The KPR-77 was originally
manufactured by Korg in the early 1980’s and was
advertised as a cheaper alternative to Roland’s
successful TR-606 drum machine. Surprisingly this
quirky little analogue machine is capable of
producing quite powerful drum sounds, we are
especially fond of the t oms, snares and claps!
Tape KPR-77 contains three pre-mapped drum kit
patches for use with Kontakt 2, 3, & 4 and Battery
3. Each kit makes use of extensive velocity
layering, round robin sample playback and choke
groups which in turn capture the quirkiness and
expressiveness of the original unit.
