U.K. sample freaks Wave Alchemy have announced their newest product, "Transistor Rhythms", an instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt Player that aims to replicate the famous Roland TR-808 and 909 drum machines as closely as possible. To do this, both machines were painstakingly sampled at multiple settings and mapped into Kontakt Player instruments that make use of Kontakt's scripting abilities and round-robin mapping to give the samples that more organic quality. Above are some demos that make use of the instrument. A free preview version is expected some time in the coming week or so.
