Instead of removing old products like any other company, I tend to prefer to archive my own legacy plugins and sample packs.
In this article, I'll show you 5 legacy products that you can still get for free. A warning though: these are old products that in some cases were made more than 10 years ago.
Legacy Drum Kits
My first free sample pack was released in 2008, it consists of a dub-inspired drum kit made from a tam-tam and a tape delay, an electronic drum kit, and a glitch kit.
I still like the glitch kit a lot!Get Legacy Drum Kits
Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1
This pack was made to promote a netlabel I had at the time, it features 50 "breakbeats" available in REX2 and Acid Wav format. The original version of the pack even had Mixman TRKs format loops! You can still get them. It was another time...
The idea was to create different styles of breakbeats, more electronic and experimental. Some of the breaks that sound acoustic are actually 100% digital (the pow wow break for instance).Get Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1
Contrary to Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1, DM-505 Breaks is much more conventional. The pack features 30 breaks made with the Roland TR-505 drum machine.
I wanted to see if I could make good-sounding beats with the very lo-fi sound of the TR-505. The result is good, but it certainly isn't hi-fi by any means! lolGet DM-505 Breaks
Released in 2017, Drum Machine is a very simple drum module featuring the sounds of the 99 Sounds Drum Library. I think it would be a good idea to update this project with new features and a more modern user interface.
As it is, it's still a fun instrument to play with, with a good variety of electronic drum sounds to choose from.
Note that it won't work on the latest versions of macOS (Catalina and up). Hence the idea of a fully updated version.Get Drum Machine
Released in 2019, GB DrumBox is a Game Boy drum module created in collaboration with the Bedroom Producer Blog.
It's a very cool little drum module, useful to add a touch of chip sounds to your tracks or to create straight-up chiptune music with it.
Note that GB DrumBox isn't compatible with macOS Catalina and up.Get GB DrumBox
That's it for today! I hope you'll enjoy these legacy products!
Have a great Friday!
