606 Drums by Wave Alchemy serves up 290 drum samples from Roland's sought-after TR-606 drum machine. They tell us that these free samples have been lovingly recorded through an API pre-amp with many sounds boasting multiple round robin variations, accent and velocity layers. Here's all the details from Wave Alchemy...
606 Drums contains four pre-mapped drum kit patches for use with Kontakt 2, 3, & 4 and Battery 3. Each kit makes extensive use of multiple velocity layers, round robin sample playback and choke groups to create truly expressive sample instruments. The Kits
  • Driven Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded and processed through a Thermionic Culture Vulture MV to give a harmonically rich and extremely colourful sound. This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound
  • Dry Kit – includes a whooping 168 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded clean through an API 512c pre-amp. This kit has been recorded in 96K, 24-bit and includes 8 round robin samples per sound as well as 3 accent / velocity layers per hit!
  • Stereo FX Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded and abused through a Moog Voyager's stereo filtering capabilities whilst being controlled by a ton of MoogerFoogers and various other CV gear! This kit sounds almost totally unrecognisable to the true TR-606 sound...
  • Warm Kit – includes 40 TR-606 drum samples which have been treated to generous amounts of vintage compression, EQ and saturation from a range of Wave Alchemy's extensive outboard collection! This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound
Round Robin
Due to the TR-606's analogue nature, subtle differences in tone are heard in the sound each time a drum is triggered. This means that no two hits coming from the 606 will sound exactly the same, which in turn makes the overall sound a lot less static and instead, more vibrant and real. This is the reason why we felt it necessary to record up to 8 "round robin" samples per sound, to help capture the "movement" created by random analogue behaviour!
If you want more high quality drum samples and one-shot hits be sure to check out our Drum Machines 02 sample pack.
