Real CR-8000 is the Roland CR-8000 sampled in extreme detail. We have sampled each sound in up to 16 different single hits. We also programmed rolls when possible to capture the true behavior of the CR-8000 when a sound is rapidly repeated. All hits and rolls have been sampled in both normal and accented versions. All grooves of the CR-8000 has been recorded in 4 bars and soundgroups are separated, you get both a "mix" loop including all sounds for that particular groove and kick/snare, hihats, cymbals, Congas, Cowbells etc. as separated loops for all grooves in both normal and shuffle versions. We recorded the grooves in low tempo around 60 BPM. Real CR-8000 contains;
- 2 programs for NI Kontakt (variation of single hits as round robin and velocity layers)
