Get a free pack of great sounding 808 samples from BPB

Bedroom Producers Blog have released BPB Cassette 808, a free collection of brilliant 808 samples including high quality one-hits based on Gregor Zemljic’s brilliant sounding 808 recordings.

Well, these samples have definitely spent enough time collection dust on our solid state drive (yup… times are changing) and we figured this is the right moment to share them with the world. Cassette 808 is based on an amazing set of Roland TR-808 samples that was recorded by Gregor Zemljic of Earresistible Mastering way back in 2010.

Gregor’s original 808 recordings are among the best (if not the very best) Roland TR-808 samples that can be downloaded for free. However, the problem is that Gregor’s source material was provided as a collection of recording sessions, each included as a rather long WAV file. In other words, the original 808 sound set wasn’t ready to use in a sampler out of the box

That’s why we decided to contact Gregor and ask him if we could edit his recordings and turn them into a ready to use sample collection. Thankfully, he said yes!

The result is Cassette 808, a 100% free sample pack consisting of three kits:

  • Clean Kit – 47 clean Roland TR-808 samples. These are Gregor Zemljic’s original samples, trimmed and edited for easy use in your sampler instrument of choice
  • Warm Kit – a set of 22 Roland TR-808 samples that were resampled from an audio cassette at low gain. Slightly noisy and warmed up
  • Hot Kit – same as the previous kit, but this time around the gain was super high. These samples are seriously distorted and gritty, so watch your speakers.

Each kit comes with a ready to use NKI patch for Native Instruments Kontakt 5. The NKI patches feature a simple custom user interface with direct access to the volume ADSR envelope, low-pass filter cutoff and resonance, as well as a built-in reverb and delay module. If you create SFZ patches (or patches for any other sampler format), please send them over and we’ll include your patches in the pack (and credit you, of course)
