The ultimate 808 kit...a deadly combo of classic drum machines and sublime analogue processing.
$29.99 USD


Your search for the ultimate 808 kit is finally over! Drum Machine Evolution is the exciting new release from Canedrive & Pad Pimps, featuring a phenomenal collection of classic drum machine sounds extensively resampled and layered with a sublime array of analog sources that most self-respecting studios would die for: ASR 10, Emu SP12, Akai S950, analog tape and vinyl.

Canedrive's 'Analog Shootout' folder contains what is without doubt one of the best sounding 808 drum kits you'll ever hear, and that's just the 'clean' version! Things get really interesting when we fire up the resampled versions, as each one gives the 808 kit completely unique tone, texture and oodles of grit.

From the saturated warmth of analog tape, the unparalleled 12 bit crunch of the Emu SP-12, the tight and chunky tones of the Akai S950 to the distinctive retro vibes of vinyl - that's a massive range of warm & crunchy sonic delights on tap. The demo below showcases the 808 kit through all six of its variants on the same 4 bar beat:

The second drum kit from Canedrive is a composite kit comprising of the best-of-the-best from multiple drum machines (including the 909 and the Korg Volca) and like the 808 kit features 16 unique drum and percussion sounds, plus the additional resampled variants (96 samples in total). Hear this kit in action within the demo for Canedrive's 'Pulse' samplepack:

If that wasn't enough, Pad Pimps come along and take the electronic/analog blend even further with their 'Hybrid Drum Library' folder. This contains a scorching library of 144 drum machine kicks, snares and hats resampled through the 12 bit Akai S900 and then expertly layered with acoustic drum samples and a variety of analog tones & textures to produce a shuddering blend of electronic and analog drum timbres. You can download some example hybrid sounds from the collection here.

The entire collection features both WAV and MPC SND versions of all sounds making it compatible with all MPC models (including JJOS), all modern software samplers and NI Maschine. Additionally all kits come with MPC program files that will load up the kit across all your pads in a finger-drumming friendly layout.

Product FAQs

Will this work with my sampler?

The sounds and kits in this pack work with all MPC models including the new MPC X and MPC Live, as well as all legacy MPC models (WAV and MPC SND format samples are included). The WAV files are also compatible with all software samplers and DAWs (e.g. Kontakt, Battery, Maschine Logic, Cubase, Reason etc).

How do I transfer files to my MPC?

After purchasing your product, you will be able to download it instantly to any computer or laptop in the form of a standard ZIP file, which can then be extracted simply by double clicking it.

As our packs are typically multi-format, inside you'll find sub folders containing files optimised for each supported sampler model. Locate the sub folder for your MPC model and transfer this folder to the disk you normally use with your MPC. Detailed instructions for each sampler model can be found here.

If you have purchased an ebook open the provided PDF file in any computer (just double click). If you have a smartphone, tablet or ebook reader you can also transfer the PDF to these, but most of our newer books also contain EPUB and MOBI (Kindle) versions of the books that will provide an optimised reading experience for these devices.

Our books normally contain a separate 'Tutorial Files' folder containing the files you need to recreate the tutorials in your MPC. You'll need to transfer this 'Tutorial Files' folder to your MPC using the same methods as samplepacks.

What gear do you use to create your sounds?

We have an extensive collection of classic and modern studio equioment including a Neve Mixing Desk, two Urie 1176, Chiswick Reach, Pheonix Compressor, Manely Massive, Various Akai MPCs, Emu SP1200 and an exhaustic array of hardware and digital signal processors (too many to list!). Plus for many packs we utilize local recording studios and musicians to get the signature sound we need.

Our Compatibility Guarantee

No one knows MPCs better than we do, so if we say a samplepack will work in your specific MPC model, it will - 100% guaranteed!

We rigorously test all our samplepacks in the latest official OS version for each MPC model, and will list the supported models in the 'Technical Specification' section on each product page.
