The Jackin' Drum Machine Modded & Circuit Bent
The 707 defined countless early Detroit Techno and Chicago House jams, and is still widely used today. It's some sort of weird combination between a Linndrum, 909, and Oberheim DX, with Italo kicks, Prince rims, Housey hi hats, hard bodied 80s Toms, and so much more.
But the 707 From Mars is above and beyond your average 707 sample pack. While the original machine had no control for tuning, ours features a custom oscillator which controls the sample rate for every voice - giving us all sorts of tuning options and circuit bending madness:
So, in addition to capturing the original 707 sounds, we multi-sampled a variety of different pitches and circuit bent tones from every drum voice, including combo hits featuring live knob twists.
The results were recorded cleanly through the classic API 512C, directly to our mastering reel to reel Otari MTR-12, and finally through Apogee Rosetta conversion.
Once chopped, the 24bit WAV was organized into both individual hits and 16-hit kits for immediate jamming. But in addition to the WAV, you'll get a fully mapped Ableton drum rack (with a selector knob to change the hardware pitch), and Kontakt & Logic instruments containing all samples.
