Legowelt has released a free sample library, featuring the 90’s-tastic virtual analog sounds of the Korg ER-1 drum machine.
The free sample library includes 150 .wav samples made with the Korg ER-1, including ‘Earthshaking Bass drums, crispy snares, audacious claps, sizzling hi hats, warbly FX + lots more!’
“When I was in Japan last month I made a samplepack from my Korg ER1 drumsynthesizer in my hotelroom
The Korg ER1 is a “digital virtual analogue” drumsynthesizer from 1999. This is basically a drum machine with a special synthesizer to make your own drums ounds.
It has a XOX style sequencer and the classic cool late 90s Korg pweieieieieuuuu delay effect.”
Legowelt explains why he loves his Roland JV2080
The JV-2080, released in 1997, uses a sample + synthesis synth architecture.
The JV-2080 is everything you could expect from a modern sound module, but more! A massive 64 voice multitimbral performance module that strives to offer the best all-around features for creating new and vintage sounds for any musical style. Excellent acoustic sounds of all instruments both common and ethnic. A massive amount of techno sounds complete with pulses, blips, sweeps, and the ever popular LFO, VCF and VCA type controls for patch editing and real-time editing. The 2080 is extremely expandable with room for 8 sound cartridges from the JV-80 series, as well as a data card slot. The 2080 has 5 excellent effects processors too, including the new EFX processors. Verb, delay, panning effects, chorus, flange, etc
