Using a custom GUI, 22,000 samples and Kontakt 5's advanced sampling engine with
over 100,000 lines of unique script, Transistor Revolution faithfully captures the tone, immediacy
and groove of the classic TR-808 and TR-909 transistor rhythm machines.
Why 22,000 samples you might ask? To give an example of the detail involved in the sampling
of each instrument, the Revolution-909 Bass Drum alone uses 9318 unique sounds to faithfully
recreate the 909 Bass Drum sound. Each of the 4 knobs on the Revolution 909 Bass Drum
control panel scans smoothly through each and every sample in real-time.
Each drum sound in Transistor Revolution has been carefully recorded using a pristine 3 inch
solid core cable connected to a transformer balanced Radial JDI and brought to line level with a
NEVE 1073 preamp. To retain the full frequency response and dynamics of this instrument we
carefully matched the peak level of each drum and recorded the samples at 24-bit 96 KHz using
mastering grade NEVE designed conversion.
