80s Soviet Drums

80s Soviet Drums features 9 drum machine drum kits from the Soviet Union. These machines were manufactured in the 1980s, and most of them are sample-based.

Since the sampling bit rate of these vintage beat boxes is very low, their sound is punchy and full of character!

A lot of work went into restoring and improving these sounds to make them usable for modern music production.

That being said, they are still lo-fi and crunchy, which makes them the perfect candidates to cut through any mixes. It is as if they reside in a frequency range of their own!

Two out of the nine kits are from analog drum machines. The rest are from PCM-based machines.

With 80s Soviet Drums, you can hear how the "Linn drums" of the Russians sounded!
