808 From Mars library by Samples From Mars is overhauled


Developer: Samples From Mars

808-from-marsSamples From Mars have re-recorded their samples from the 808 From Mars library.

We missed 8/08 day because we were extremely busy completely overhauling the 808 From Mars. Using a different 808, we re-recorded our 808 samples entirely, this time tuning them, recording saturated and clean versions, re-pitching every hit on tape and more. We then combined this with our original 808 samples, and made some killer Ableton, Logic & Kontakt instruments.

The 808 is easily the most recognized drum machine in history. It’s responsible for the birth of countless genres – hip hop, electro, techno, house, trap, and a variety of sub-genres too countless to mention. But although it was created in early 1980, it is still a favorite among many, and can be heard on everything from an Afrika Bambaataa record to Lil Jon dirty south radio hit to a LIES techno 12″.
