Version: Kontakt 5.7.3 / NCW / V2
TR-77 recreation for Kontakt
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
Seventy7 is a virtual simulation of an old drum machine from the 1970s generally known as the Rhythm77 or TR-77. The TR-77 itself evolved from the Rhythm Ace and its original purpose was to provide rhythm to home or professional organists.
The sounds in Seventy7 are 24 Bit resolution samples with up to 8 round-robin variations depending on the sound. Great care was taken in recording and editing the sounds to get the best quality possible.
All the original rhythms have been accurately reproduced and can be combined together like the real thing. Seventy7 makes it easy to include these rhythms in your own music with its built-in performance recorder. Record a few bars of a rhythm then either save it as a MIDI file or drag it straight onto a track in your sequencer or DAW ready for playback.

Brilliant nostalgia with midi timing
Faultless,i own the original and it's been captured perfectly.I look forward to more from this company.
AWSOME! More Forgotten Keys with new UIs.
Fun, Quirky, Great Sound
As someone who never got to use an original TR-77 or CR-78, getting to play around with these recreations and not just some sample packs is the best - the functionality is really playful and sounds great to me!
I thin I bought this because Sade used it? I can't remember. :P Anyway, it is what it is, a great emulation of a very dated sound.
cool vintage drums
I love the presets and sounds. just like mom's old organ
As an owner of a TR77 i am astounded at how good this emulation is. If you want an accurate reproduction of this vintage machine look no further than this.
punchy retro goodness
Good news! If you spent any time mapping your grid controller to the CR78 from forgotten keys their Seventy7 uses the same keys! This is another faithful rendition of a now rare machine. Round-robin sampling keeps it from sounding "sampled" and it's a joy to tweak both while using the internal rhythms and when feeding it your own midi sequences.
