A Tiny Drum Machine With A Big Sound
522 is a faithful recreation of the MFB-522 analog drum machine. It works for almost any genre, be it the rolling hats and boomy kicks of Trap and Hip Hop or the punchy boom-tss-ka-tss of House and Techno.
Hear What 522 Sounds Like
Tiny Drum Machine, Big Sound
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 and Hip Hop or the punchy boom-tss-ka-tss of House and Techno.
Inside the Pack
In this Ableton Live Pack you’ll find a faithful, sampled recreation of the now out of production MFB-522. Every drum has been round-robin sampled 4 times to capture the truly analog character and the Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Clap and Cymbal have been captured at multiple settings to allow for morphing between their available characters with the easy to use Macro controls.
