SampleScience has released today TR-626 HD, a high definition collection of free TR-626 drum samples.
The TR-626 was the upgraded digital version of the classic TR-606 and TR-505 drum machines. This beat-box is still simple but has a few good points that come from its legendary ancestors – the TR-909 and TR-808.
This pack appeared because there are no quality free TR-626 drum samples online. Most of them are badly recorded, mislabeled, provided as low bit rates audio files and noisy.
SampleScience’s TR-626 HD fixes this problem, by providing clean drum samples in high definition 32 bit 44.1kHz quality. The samples have been properly edited and recorded, giving you a perfect and usable sample set. You can use the sounds in various genres, including hip hop, pop, EDM and other similar styles.
The sample pack comes with all the 30 drum sounds found in the TR-626 drum machine: bass drums, hi hats, snares, the percussions and toms. The 24 bit and 16 bit versions of the samples are provided too.
TR-626 HD sample pack is available via Gumroad (pay-what-you-want, no minimum price – which means you can get it also for free if you’re broke or… stingy). The download size is 27MB compressed ZIP file with all three audio quality versions.
