522 is a faithful recreation of the MFB-522 analog drum machine. The 522 is fully analog, with a sound reminiscent of an 808 yet with its own unique character. Just like the 808, the 522 works for almost any genre, be it the rolling hats and boomy kicks of Trap & Hip Hop or the punchy boom-tss-ka-tss of House & Techno.
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.

The MFB-522 Drumcomputer is a potent little beast. About the size of an iPad, it puts drum machines twice it’s size to shame.
The 522 is fully analog, with a sound reminiscent of an 808 yet with its own unique character. The Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Clap and Cymbal each have multiple controls to shift the tone allowing for a fairly broad range of sounds, from boomy and open to tight and punchy.
Just like the 808, the 522 works for almost any genre, be it the rolling hats and boomy kicks of Trap & Hip Hop or the punchy boom-tss-ka-tss of House & Techno.
