The machine had 14 tape loops with a sliding control that allowed playback of different tracks on each piece of tape that could be combined to create many variations. Roland CompuRhythm CR-78 The CR-78 is a classic analog rhythm machine – and was the first to use a microprocessor. The 34 built-in patterns could be altered at the push of a button, providing the user significantly more creative control. As for the drum sounds, the CR-78 offers 14 very electronic, yet analog drum tones. Sounds include Kick, Snare, Rim, Cow Bell, Hi-Hats, Cymbals, Congas, Bongos, Tambourine and Guiros. With 11 variation effects and the ability to adjust tempo, accents, and fade in/outs, the CR-78 is still capable of producing exquisite rhythms for use in ambient, hip hop and many other forms of music. One of the best-known uses of the CR-78 can be heard in Phil Collins’ 1981 hit, “In the Air Tonight” Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer In the worlds of techno, house, hip hop and R&B, the Roland TR-808 is an indispensable machine. Its signature sound, the booming bass drum that has created the groove of hits by everyone from Marvin Gaye to Afrika Bambaata to 808 state and is currently one of the most frequently used sounds in modern music. Despite its current iconic status, when it was released in 1980, the 808 was not a top seller by any means. There were lots of people didn’t like the simplistic sound in preference to more expensive machines such as the digitally-sampled LinnDrum. However, producers in the underground acid-house music scene leaned towards the TR-808 and the entire Roland product line, including the TB-303, SH-101 and TR-909, giving these boxes their iconic status and modern day price tags to match. Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer The TR-909 featured the sampled and analog drum sounds that have become synonymous with house and techno music. This programmable, step-sequenced drum machine was launched in 1983, and while it was not an instant commercial success, it soon gained an underground following. With DIN Sync24, MIDI In and Out, and individual outputs for each sound, the TR-909 could be integrated into any studio, and offers numerous controls for controlling each sound. The TR-909 has been used by The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Moby, Fatboy Slim, Orbital and Jean Michel Jarre. It would be hard to find a techno or house producer who hasn’t used a TR-909 kick in a track at some point. LinnDrum The inspirational LinnDrum was created by Linn Electronics in 1982, using superior sounding samples that gave birth to a new generation of users who are synonymous with the sound of the ‘80s. The LinnDrum was used on countless classics tracks throughout the '80s, including hits by Prince, Tears for Fears and Madonna. Oberheim DMX Launched in 1981, the Oberheim DMX also used sampled sounds of real drums, individual tuning controls for each drum voice and a swing function to add a little groove. The controls gave the DMX the ability to emulate a real drummer via timing variations, rolls and flams to create a more human “feel”. The DMX has 11 samples, which can be used to create 24 individual drum sounds and allows up to 8 voices simultaneously. It has 8 separate outputs for individual channel processing and holds up to 100 sequences and 50 songs. The DMX’s hard-hitting and convincing drum sound made it attractive to artists and producers in the burgeoning hip-hop culture, and it is featured on many of the scenes early innovative records. New Order used the DMX to great effect on their 1983 single, “Blue Monday” with its repeating bass drum pattern. E-mu SP-1200 Released in 1987, the E-mu SP-1200 was quickly accepted into the hip hop world due to its limited bandwidth sampling rate, classic 4-pole filter and 12-bit sampling resolution. This all contributed to the unit’s gravelly sounds, which have been feature on many hit recordings. The SP-1200’s ability to build the main structure of a song within a single piece of gear (a first for the industry) cut hip-hop artists loose from the studio to perform live alongside the machine. Famous users include the Beastie Boys, The Prodigy and Daft Punk AKAI MPC60 The celebrated Akai MPC was designed by Roger Linn and produced by Akai from 1988 onwards. The MPC allowed artists to use new clever ways to manipulate small samples to create a completely new track. These snippets were often lifted from other records and thus started a new style of “Sound-Collage”. The original MPC60 only allowed sample lengths of up to 13 seconds. Sampling memory was expensive at the time, which steered people to sampling records at higher speeds in order to gain more time. The side effect was playback at a lower resolution, which contributed to the grittiness of the sound. Famous users include Kanye West, Dr. Dre and Mark Ronson.
