and the most important part of this post :)
High quality sample pack of all dr-660 sounds – download here (over 60mb zip archive)
There are long decay sounds at two or three different pitches.
It takes me a lot of work to record, denoise and trim these samples, so please leave thanks in comments :-)

These samples can be used with no restrictions as components of musical compositions either private or commercial. BUT you are not allowed to redistribute, sell or use as application (plugin) component. ASK ME FIRST!

    my zip contains all sounds from dr-660 (except two sounds of bass, maybe i will update this archive later)

    it looks that dj topcat created this tracks only on dr-660

    you probably like this sound similar to cowbell, i think that few sounds were layered with some internal reverb or maybe chorus

    try mix pitched down sound 230 with sounds 185,208,211,220 and maybe other
    set short decay envelope, add short reverb and little chorus
    it will be hard to recreate exactly the same sound
    but i think that sounds 230 dominates

    keep in mind that dr-660 is not a simple sample player
    there are many presets that are generated from internal waves in specific way
    for example whenever you set own pitch on the preset, it sounds very different
    it does not sound just the same way when you play sample at different pitch

    Its very hard to sample all sounds and every sound at different pitch

    So experiment with wavs i provided or buy cheap real dr-660

    Best regards
    Martin

    Wow, this is really one of the only drum machine sample libraries worth collecting. It’s a shame that they don’t really make/sell drum machines like that anymore. Thanks so much for all your hard work and attention to important details.

    Lot of time since the last comment… thank you for sharing this! I’m considering to buy a used dr-660 so you sample kit will be really useful to understand the range of sounds! Cheers
