Sly Stone Drum Machine Emulated

Forgotten Keys tells us that  KING-2 is a virtual MAESTRO RHYTHM KING MRK-2 American-made drum machine, as heard on recordings by Sly and the Family Stone. This is what they have to say about it...

All the internal sounds have been carefully sampled -- not just those on the front panel trigger buttons -- while the cymbal and snare sounds are multi-sampled for more realism.

As well as the 18 rhythms from the MRK-2, there are two extra – DISCO and PASO DOBLE – that were only included on the MRK-1 model that preceded it.

The built-in MIDI file recorder makes exporting the built-in rhythms and playing them back from a DAW easy and robust.
