Ladies and gentlemen, the latest in my sample pack odyssey has arrived - this time showcasing the super cool ER-1 MkII from Korg!
Released in 1999, the original Korg ER-1 was a flexible, fully digital drum machine capable of a wide range of tones and timbres. The MkII included a cross modulation option for modulating one sound against another, which was suitably abused for this pack.
This pack features 160 one-shot samples - 16 kicks, 16 closed hats, 16 open hats, 32 snares/claps, 32 percussive sounds, 32 dry tones and 16 reverberated tones. All individual samples are encoded in 24-bit and 48khz sample rate.
There are also seven sample chains provided with the download, including .ot files designed for use with the OT. These sample chains are presented in 24-bit and 44.1khz sample rate so they work better with the Octatrack, though the samples will work nicely in any sampler.
There are also 22 loops, which are original Korg ER-1 patterns which came with the device. These are also presented in 24-bit and 44.1khz sample rate so they work better with the OT. A fun trip down memory lane as well as tools for music production - chop and go!
Finally, there is an Ableton Live Drum Selector rack (Live Suite only) which allows you to program a pattern and change the sample with the turn of an encoder, as well as alter decay, pitch, distortion, compression and more with ease.
I’m sure there are little things that could do with fixing here and there - reach out and I’ll get these things sorted.
