Of late I’ve been really inspired by the sounds of the 80’s. I even watched the movie Xanadu last night for inspiration. What a terribly awesome movie by the way. I’ve been loving the vintage tape sounds,lush synth pads,and striking percussion. I’ve had a chance to work with some analog drum machines to make Live Drum Racks for my production. The drum machines were the Alesis HR16, LinnDrum, and Simmons Crash Trap.

Retro Vintage Drums Ableton

I’ve spent time processing the one shots, 76 in total, and putting them in drum racks with Macro controls for Ableton Live 9. I’m really proud of how these racks turned out and wanted to share them with you all. Hope to inspire some rad chillwave and glo-fil, been really digging that genre of late.

Download the files for free below. I also have the one shot samples for use in any DAW including Live 8 in a ZIP file below.

If you dig these drum racks then look at the Retro Grade Live Pack on the site. It’s a collection of Analog inspired synths, leads, and pads for Ableton. Also includes a library of massive patches, audio effects, basses, and more.
