808's that bang.
This pack features 100 made-from-scratch tuned 808 bass sounds. Most of these were creating using analog synthesizers, digital sine waves, guitar amps, & unusual percussion from former pATCHES packs. All of the samples are royalty-free, tuned to C, & organized by length & impact. We recommend using sampler, simpler, or a similar MIDI sample instrument to play these 808 sounds and bring some huge bottom end to your productions. Note that you'll likely want to add some light or heavy distortion to taste to make them stand out in your mix.
a kick as a bass?
As we all know, the Roland TR-808 drum machine has played an important role in the development of electronic music. However, as Daedalus points out, the actual kick drum sound of the TR-808 sounds nothing like what it's come to represent in the collective conscious. Over the course of history, the sound was sampled, processed, & resampled countless times to create the subby thud we've come to associate with electronic kicks. The percussive sounds of the 808 are still beloved & well used but today's production has seen a version of the processed sound become popular as both kick & bass for tracks.
