is proud to announce the release of Drum Machine Evolution, the exciting new drum collection from Canedrive & Pad Pimps featuring a phenomenal array of classic drum machine sounds extensively resampled and layered with a sublime array of analog sources that most self-respecting studios would die for: ASR 10, Emu SP12, Akai S950, analog tape and vinyl.

Canedrive’s ‘Analog Shootout’ folder contains what is without doubt one of the best sounding 808 drum kits you’ll ever hear, and that’s just the ‘clean’ version! Things get really interesting when we fire up the resampled versions, as each one gives the 808 kit completely unique tone, texture and oodles of grit.

The second drum kit from Canedrive is a composite kit comprising of the best-of-the-best from multiple drum machines (including the 909 and the Korg Volca) and like the 808 kit features 16 unique drum and percussion sounds, plus the additional resampled variants (96 samples in total).

If that wasn’t enough, Pad Pimps come along and take the electronic/analog blend even further with their ‘Hybrid Drum Library’ folder. This contains a scorching library of 144 drum machine kicks, snares and hats resampled through the 12 bit Akai S900 and then expertly layered with acoustic drum samples and a variety of analog tones & textures to produce a shuddering blend of electronic and analog drum timbres.

The entire collection features both WAV and MPC SND versions of all sounds making it compatible with all MPC models (including JJOS), all modern software samplers and NI Maschine. Additionally, all kits come with MPC program files that will load up the kit across all your pads in a finger-drumming friendly layout.

Drum Machine Evolution is a complete must-have collection for any drum machine fanatic! For more information including example sounds and audion demos, go to
