Don Solaris, Gearslutz member, has released Roland TR-606 sample pack, a collection of 28 samples recorded from Roland TR-606 drum machine.

I built this set because i was not satisfied with existing 606 sets. They sounded not so much like the real 606 – probably too much processing & stuff. This set is exactly as it is, 100% identical original sound.

There is some difference on how 606 will sound depending how much you drive its mixing (output) stage. That’s why i included two sets in here:

  • Normal – TR-606’s output volume was set at medium position for more transparent sound.
  • Max – These were recorded at TR-606’s max volume, thus producing a bit of (intentional) saturation in 606’s mixer circuit.

Pack specifications:

  • Recording path: straight TR-606 -> A/D
  • Recording specs: 44100kHz/24bit/mono
  • Processing: None
  • Normalized: Yes
  • Sliced: Yes
  • Number of samples: 28
