RX-17 HD

The Yamaha RX-17 is an obscure drum machine made in the eighties when Duran Duran was the biggest band in the world and Micheal Jackson was still alive. Made in 1987, the RX-17 has drum sounds highly influenced by the era it was released. Containing a grand total of 26 sounds, the RX-17 combines a standard acoustic drum set with an additional latin drum sound set.

It could be seen as the bastard child of the Yamaha RX-21 and the RX-21L (for "Latin"), but the sounds are not exactly the same. For instance, while the kicks are identical, the snare of the RX-17 has an electronic vibe to it not found on the RX-21 and the toms are completely different. Furthermore, their overall quality is better, mostly because they are 12-bit samples instead of 8-bit.

We sampled the RX-17 in 32 bit, hence the HD (for high definition), to capture the raw output of the machine. Also provided are 16-bit and 24-bit versions of the samples at a 44.1kHz sample rate. Ad a little bit of reverb are you're in synhtwave, retrowave, and synthpop territory.
