E-mu Drumulator Sampled
Drumulator From Mars offers the 12-bit sound of Depeche Mode drums circa 1983-84 05/10/17
Samples From Mars have released Drumulator From Mars featuring sounds from E-mu's Drumulator. This is what they have to say about it...
The Drumulator is a 12 bit drum machine created in 1983 by Emu Systems. After achieving success with the Emulator, Emu took aim at creating a much more affordable Linn LM1. And while the results certainly didn't sound like an LM1, the Drumulator nonetheless had a successful run in the 80s, and is featured on countless productions, from Patrick Cowley to Depeche Mode (some people say it's the sound of Depeche Mode from '83-'84). And while it doesn't exactly do Linn, it does its own thing quite well: crunchy and lo-fi, 12bit 80's drums.
