When drum machines first came out in the 80s we loved the programmability but hated the sound limitations. It’s funny how things work, but today it’s those limitations that everyone remembers and wants to recapture. One way to do that is with Wave Alchemy’s Revolution, a virtual drum machine that emulates the authentic sound of some of the iconic units from days past.
The Revolution captures the sound of 14 iconic drum machines, including the Roland TR-808, 909, 606, 707, 505, CR78 and CR-8000, Roger Linn’s original LinnDrum, the Sequential Circuits Drumtraks, the E-mu Drumlator and SP-12, and the Oberheim OB-DX.
