Free Software Friday - Beatmaker RT-7070x

Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs Music blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.

The Roland TR-707 drum machine was often overlooked for the 808 and 909 siblings, but it was still a hugely popular drum machine and it's shorter, punchier sound was much more suited to disco and pop styles. With the 707 having a lighter, clicky kick, it was much easier to drop into a mix. This free plugin ROMpler recreation is fantastic for slotting that signature sound right into you tracks too.

There are 20 kits included, one as a straight recreation of the original machine and 19 other kits that are processed various ways for extra variety. Check out the audio demos below and check the link at the bottom for a link to download.
