Body in the Thames OB6 Drum Sample Pack [Volume 1]

This one in via Body of The Thames who had the following to say:

"The 'Oberheim sound is famously about big sawtooth pads and pulse wave modulated strings and the oscillators & filter are certainly truly awesome for that 'signature' feel.

I do love programming drums & percussion on analog synths as well however.

Perceived wisdom is that you need a 24db self-oscillating filter for kicks & toms etc & the OB-6 has a 12db filter which doesn't self-oscillate.

What it does have though is is an LFO which goes well into audible range plus powerful cross-modulation possibilities and so I think perhaps this pack shows another side to the OB-6 that might surprise a few people."

That said, here are the track details from BandCamp:

"This track is a short demo created entirely with just a few of the samples from the OB-6.

'Body in the Thames OB6 Drum Sample Pack [Volume 1]'

To download the entire sample pack simply download this track - included with the mp3 is a file containing your link to the full pack.

The track & therefore the sample pack is offered as 'name your own price – no minimum' so in principle it is free but the more you give, the more material will be available in the future. :)

thank you
