“What happens when you take a perfectly good drum machine and run it through a gauntlet of Eurorack filters, effects, wavefolders and compressors?” asks wavparty. “Uh… this sample pack”.
Busted Fake Oh 8 is a prime example of how far you can mutate simple and familiar sounds into something else. It’s not quite clear what wavparty has done to this defenceless TR-808 drum machine clone to make it sounds so warped and wild. But you have to admit, the results are pretty interesting. Below is a demo track created entirely with the Busted Fake Oh 8 pack.
In its own words, wavparty’s Busted Fake Oh 8 is “a set of wild, grungy, and unexpected drum sounds that can add character to virtually any track”. Boasting 369 sounds in 44.1kHz/16bit WAV, this is the brand’s biggest sample pack yet. Best of all, it’s completely free – although you can opt to pay as much as you like.
Included in the pack is:
- 138 kick drums (87 tuned to C)
- 58 snares
- 36 open high hats
- 26 claps
- 24 closed high hats
- 23 toms (tuned)
- 16 cymbals
- 13 claves
- 13 cowbells
- 12 maracas
- 10 rimshots
The kit also included an Ableton Live Pack with 10 different instruments, three of which can be used as drum kits. Built into these instruments is a selection of effects and Push-friendly macro controls.
