Goldbaby The Tape 909 Sample Pack Wav Download 
Expanding our collection of free tape processed drum machine samples, I am proud to announce the release of the Cassette 909 drum sample library. Based on an extensive set of clean 909 drum machine recordings created by Edgar Maguyon, this free sample pack adds a touch of that lo-fi audio cassette crunch to the iconic 909 drum sound.

In agreement with Edgar, I took these long 909 recordings and trimmed them down to individual one-shots. The best drum hits were then recorded to CrO2 cassette tape using my trusty cassette deck pictured below. I recorded the samples to a cassette at two different gain settings, in order to get two different cassette saturation flavors for this kit.
Finally, the samples were re-sampled back to the DAW and trimmed down to individual hits. The result is a collection of 155 carefully edited one-shot samples of the 909 drum machine, with 71 clean samples and 84 tape processed hits (these are organized into two separate folders, according to the gain setting).
Finally, we took our second 909 and ran it through an SSL 4000, going crazy with EQ, filtering, compression and gating, recording the results to tape. Once on tape, we played back the tape at different speeds to achieve new analog tunings of the 909 previously never heard. The idea of this second batch of samples is to provide a really diverse, somewhat random "Various" folder for every drum voice.
Octatrack sampler demoing the preloaded parts, patterns and scenes from Goldbaby Tape 808+909 sample pack. Really punchy and versatile drum sounds from Roland classic drum machines and the demo bank is a wonderful way to get a taste of the sonic potential of not just the samples but also the Octatrack itself.
To create the free sample library, a vintage 909 was sampled and then processed by recording to Cr02 cassette to add tape saturation and resampling. The result is a collection of 155 carefully edited one shot samples of the TR-909 drum machine, with 71 clean samples and 84 tape processed hits (these are organized into two separate folders, according to the gain setting). 350c69d7ab
