Akai – XR-10: Kit-02
Classic Drum Machine History
The XR10 is a budget drum machine that was released by Akai in the early nineties. While it is not exactly a contender for the top drum machine ever released, it was a big improvement on Akai’s XE8, both in terms of sounds and operational convenience.
These samples were recorded at a resolution of 16 bits and there are 64 to choose from, including the usual bass drums, snares, claps, toms, and hihats.
The sounds are crisp and the XR10 is capable of cutting through any mix.
