1960s Drum Machine - Mini Pops 7
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Oxypops is a virtual simulation of an old drum machine from the 1960s generally known as the Mini Pops 7. It was most famously used by a certain French electronic music composer in the 1970s.
The sounds in Oxypops are 24 Bit resolution samples and up to 16 round-robin variations are included. Noise generated sounds such as the Hi-Hat sound more natural and less “sampled” when variations of the sound are played at random.
All the original rhythms have been accurately reproduced and can be combined together like the real thing.
No doubt you'll want to use some of these rhythms within your song. Well, with Oxypops, you can record a performance and export it as a MIDI file or drag the data right onto a track in your sequencer or DAW ready to play back the sounds as recorded.
Please note: You will need the FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1 to load this instrument (NOT for Kontakt Player)
- Fixes a bug for people using Kontakt 6
- MIDI FILE CREATOR section improved.
- SWING feature added.
- HOST SYNC moved from TEMPO control to its own dedicated switch and now responds to DAW transport START and STOP commands.
- SOUND FX switch added.
- SOLO switches added to each channel.
- LED-style volume level meters added to each channel.
- Minor bug fixes, optimisations and graphics tweaks.
- In-built help removed, too tedious to maintain. Read the (shortened) manual instead.
Totally awesome perfect re-creation!
If you love and analog drum machines as I do and there’s some you just can’t seem to find anymore and when you do they’re so expensive this one blew my socks off I tried it out today and I was totally amazed great job I’m going to buy all the plug-ins from this company!
I've been waiting for the return of this company for years.I own the original machine and this sounds brilliant to my ears.No more timing issues and exports as a midi file too.Faultless.I look forward to more releases-cr78 please...
Ein sehr gutes Drum simuliert hervorragend die Roland 78
Welcome back Forgotten Keys!
I was very surprised and more than happy to see Forgotten Keys reappearance on the Kontakt instrument market. Oxypops MP-7 is a great rework of his former Rhythm Box emulations which I loved.
The bigger GUI as well as the very advanced MIDI export and record function is very helpful and gives it a higher integration within a workflow. You can PAN, TUNE, LEVEL and MUTE each sound individually and sent it to an output of your choice. And the sound is, like all the earlier instruments of Forgotten Keys just right and great.
Keep up the great work, please.
Es como tener la mismísima Korg MiniPops en tu poder!
Tiene esa chispa Jarre que no tiene otros VST.
Si te gusta Jarre, compra!

TOP OF THE CLASS!
What a gem this is! It seems to be the only one of it's kind out there too, surprisingly - well done to Forgotten Keys for emulating it.
They've included 2 models; MP-7 & SR-95, having different sounds to some of the instruments. All the famous rhythms & combinations are here and you can even export the MIDI files - a huge selling point for me.
The GUI is really nice - exactly the same as the original unit.
Most important of all - it has great sounding samples, very authentic.
The mixer page is also excellent - tuning, panning, muting and level options for each sound (as well as Multi-out assignment options to send to your DAW. In future updates I would like to see: A SOLO feature for each channel and a level meter operating in the channel fader position.
Bringing old dreams in reality with Oxypops
The use of the Korg Mini Pops by Jean Michel Jarre made me in the past jealous. I am 30 years older and play again more and more music on my new synthesizer and VST environments on Apple Logic Pro X. I found Oxypops after looking for a VST/AU for that rhythm wonder Mini Pops. Oxypops does the job in a perfect way.
Thank you Forgotten Keys. You are not forgotten anymore !
AWSOME! More forgotten key with updated UIs.
oxygene beat 4 kontakt
works also under kontakt 6.
may be JMJ
LOVE THIS....LOVE THIS....F@@KING LOVE THIS.... (Nuff said)
Demo - More Oxygen Please
I HAD to create a tribute to JMJ's Oxygene, given that the Oxypops does such a great job of recreating the seminal drum machine from that album.
Oxypops sounds very warm and fat, as this piece demonstrates. The other sounds are from NI Reaktor.
