Knowing Goldbaby’s track record, this was bound to happen sooner or later. Guitar pedals can work their magic on synths and drum machines as well, and the New Zealand-based sampling guru just proved that with his new sound pack, Stompbox808.
In Goldbaby’s words “the 808 through these boxes is a sonic wonderland of drum goodness”.
This pack contains a varied and useful palette of new 808 sounds. Not just full on distortion (although there is plenty) but also subtle saturation and new punchy, warm tones that you can only get through these wonderful little analog and digital stomp boxes.
Also included are some crazy/weird drum sounds that you wouldn’t even think came from an 808.
Chromatic kicks, congas and toms are mapped and tuned so you can play them on your keyboard (EXS-24, Kontakt and Maschine). All the samples are logically labeled and organised. With kits for Maschine, Geist, Battery, Kontakt and EXS-24.
You can buy Stompbox808 for $29 from the Goldbaby website.
