Version: Kontakt 5.2 / NCW / V1
An Old Skool Classic Redefined
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
The DX was a drum machine produced in 1983, which, along with its big brother, the DMX, was used on many hit records of that era (most notably New Order's "Blue Monday").
In addition to 80s pop, it was widely used on many house / new wave jams 80s Hip Hop, and even the early digital era of reggae.
Sampled Through Tape
The DX delivers a huge, acoustic / electronic drum sound akin to the Linndrum, Drumtrax and 707 (but fuller sounding).
Thick, punchy, and sits well in any mix. We multi-sampled it to 1/4" tape through classic preamps, hardware saturation and Apogee conversion, transforming it into a feature rich Kontakt instrument.
Intelligent Kontakt Sequencing
The sound of the Kontakt instrument is insane and the sequencer makes for fun, intuitive programming - I prefer both the sound and sequencing of the Kontakt instrument to the original machine (seriously).
