707 | The Sound Of A Classic Drum Machine

Add To Cart



707 is a faithful recreation of the classic Roland TR-707 drum machine used by artists such as Aphex Twin, Daft Punk, Plastikman and more. The Ableton Drum Rack takes it one step further by presenting you with simple to use Macro controls to transform the sound well beyond the possibilities of the original hardware.

707 is also available as part of the DRUMSFREE and EVRYTHNG bundles.

Hear What 707 Sounds Like

More Info

The Roland TR-707 Rhythm Composer is a sample based drum machine manufactured by Roland starting in 1984. The 707 was a staple of early house music and features sounds reminiscent of the TR-909. Itโ€™s been used by artists as diverse as Aphex Twin and Phil Collins.

The original hardware is entirely sample based and the only control available for each hit is volume, however by building the samples into an Ableton Drum Rack you're presented with many more options for sound transformation, allowing the sound to be manipulated well beyond whatโ€™s possible with the original hardware.

Each drum hit has been sampled 4 times (called round-robin sampling) to capture the small fluctuations in circuitry that often gives hardware instruments their unique sound.

Own The Artwork

Does your music studio need a bit of character? The artwork for 707 is available to buy as a print from my Redbubble store. Redbubble makes it easy for artists to sell their work to fans - they handle all of the logistics such as printing and shipping. Iโ€™ve used them before many times and have been very happy with the experience. Seeing as this is a free pack, buying the artwork is a great way to help support development!

Pay What You Want

707 is released as a Pay-What-You-Want pack. This means that you can download it completely for free, but if you'd like to pay a bit for the pack its always appreciated! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป 

I've had so much fun using 707 myself that I wanted to make sure anyone could use it, no matter your budget. Still, a lot of time and resources have gone into making 707 so if you can afford to drop a little in with your download I really appreciate it!

I'd recommend $5 as a fair amount ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป
