"What a cool old dirty drum machine!’– Me about the
Yamaha DD-10 when I first saw it some years ago.
This is really a charming lo-fi low cost 8-bit drum
machine released in 1988 aimed at the home market
and I really love it. I’m writing in first person
because I wanted to get really personal about this
one. This is one of my all time favorites and it’s
the sample pack I use the most when it comes to drum
For those who know me, it was pretty obvious that
I’d pass it through a tape recorder and store the
sounds on my HDD. They didn’t thought I’d experiment
with each and every sound of this awesome piece of
gear and a whole bunch of cassette and reel-to-reel
tape recorders. That’s what I did and this is what
You guys know that you can pass the same sound
through the same tape machine a hundred times and
the sound you’ll achieve each time is a little
different from the other ones, right? We wanted to
make sure you can achieve this too, so we made three
round robins for each drum piece."
The sample pack is a free download from the
