Each sample in OBSOLETE 1 contains elements of consumer electronic devices rendered obsolete by technological advancements. The devices and their mechanical characteristics were dissected and stitched into the fabric of all-new percussion samples. The devices in OBSOLETE 1 include a rotary analog telephone phone, an electric typewriter, two video cassette recorders, hi-fi cassette player, crank emergency radio, and monochromatic handheld video game console. From core drum kit elements to eccentric sonic flourishes, this sound pack turns one man’s trash into a beat maker’s treasure.

The entire sample pack was captured at 96 kHz, with a 24-bit depth for superb dynamic range and realism. Suited perfectly for this task, a stereo set of e914 small-diaphragm condenser microphones were used to detail the microscopic nuances of each obsolete device, further enhanced by ultra-fat imaging. On speakers and headphones, these one-of-a-kind drums sound fresh and full-bodied, seemingly jumping into the air with color and excitement.
