re-Kawai R50e – Classic machine revisited


Kawai R-50e is a late eighties Japanese drum machine, also featuring slap-bass and synth sounds. With our Re-Kawai R-50e sample pack we tried to capture a spirit of this groovebox used in nuomerous tracks and movies at the time, while today it is still used mostly in Manga production.

We sampled all 40 distinctive, raw and gritty, sounds of this machine, and not just that, we have also produced 64 full loops and 64 steams (kick, hats, claps, bass, stabs, melodies) that you can easily combine or produce new loops with our Ableton Live template. Sounds of R-50e can be used in various genres, from techno, house and disco to electronica, industrial, pop music and more.

Beside Ableton Live project (also compatible with Lite and Intro) samples are provided as NI Kontakt and Battery patches, as well as in WAV and REX2 format. We hope that you will enjoy this pack and invite you to check our demos for some golden eighties sounds, more than suitable for contemporary electronic music.
