Korg Rhythm 55 Analog Vintage Drum Machine Demo (KR-55 )

Published on Sep 19, 2017 Sound Provider

"Quick demo of the Korg Rhythm 55 , it is another Drum machine we use for the Sound Provider Sound Banks.( )
Even if it s rather basic we like its punchy sounds and also the swing.
This version is modded with separate outputs for each sound and an Sync24 in.
Few words from Vintage Synth Explorer
"The KR55 was, for its time (1979), an advanced preset rhythm drum machine with up to 96 preset rhythm patterns! These patterns cover the whole gamut of presets (Waltz, Samba, Rhumba, Bossa Nova, Tango, Slow Rock, Swing, Rock, etc.). The KR55 also featured a "swing beat" control to add a variation to the groove. Each drum sound's level can be individually adjusted for each pattern. It can also be externally controlled via footswitch jack for the Start/Stop and Intro/Fill switches. The KR55B was a black-chassis version released a few years later in 1982 with twice as many rhythm patterns. It has been used by Jean-Michel Jarre, Trio and Depeche Mode."
