808 Kick Samples & Booms For Your Music Production

By: Ferencz Castlen

808 kick drum samples have been used meant for years in all kinds of music, from rap to pop to dance. The
808 drum machine was brought out by Roland - and also named the TR-808. Intended for musicians, the distinctive
808 sound is definitely hard to come by, unless you own an original machine that costs hundreds of dollars.
One way to solve this specific problem is actually to purchase a sample pack that contains recordings direct from the
Roland TR-808. There are many of these drum sample kits available online - but only one captures the
true sound of the original machine.

Producers Choice has released 808's Kicks & Booms, a collection of drum samples by Mike Chav.
Mike Chav has worked as an engineer, producer along with instrumentalist for the purpose of Erykah Badu, Jay Electronica,
Snoop Dogg, Method Man, Eminem, D12, Amp Fiddler, Guilty Simpson, Slum Village, J Dilla, Busta
Rhymes and also more.

This kind of collection features 48 unique takes on the classic 808 kick drum sample, recorded directly from
a classic Roland TR-808 drum machine, then processed with high end gear (including ultra high end
