They first provided replacement sample chips for the Linn Drum and other drum machines. Later, they created software called Sound Designer, which allowed you to off-load samples from your Emulator II (or others available at the time) to a Mac where you could do visual editing, looping, and all of those other things that were nigh impossible on ... These samples were recorded directly from vintage drum machines namely, EMU sp12, OB- MX, LINN DRUM and Fairlight. The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state pre-amps and compressors such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pres, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978. What really makes this app worth it to me, though, is that you have all of the Linn Drum parts—though there’s only 2 congas and toms—plus tuning for each part. And there’s a mix control that alters the characteristic of each part, so you have a pretty large palette of sounds to work with. • SL Drums 3 – Free Drum ROMpler By Beatmaker.
