BVKER released Retouched For Free


“Retouched” isn’t just another boring collection of free Linn Drum samples. Instead, you’ll get 49 brand-new drum hits based on the beloved Linn character but manipulated using magic sound design and processing techniques to fit the needs of a modern music producer.

The Linn Drum
The Linn LM-2 might have shaped the sound of the 80s like no other drum machine. It has been used on countless hit records by artists including a-Ha, Madonna, Billy Idol, and many more. Due to the rise of 80s-inspired music, it’s increasing in popularity again, and although it still has a great character, the original sounds lack punch and perfection, as measured by today’s standards. BVKER’s team didn’t want to let that sit on them and decided to modernize those iconic drum sounds to have better transients, be louder, and sonically more refined!

The Process
While creating this kit, BVKER didn’t shy away from changing pitches, adding top layers, or new transients. They even replaced the body on some kicks, added tape saturation, analog compression, new reverb tails, and processed the hell out of it. While some of the samples have been changed up quite a lot, they ensured to obtain the original sound more in others. If you’re looking for a free Linn Drum sample pack suitable for modern 80s, Synthpop, or Synthwave music, this is the kit you want to download!

Please be aware: If you start blasting those samples in your bedroom studio, your mom might dig out her old disco outfit and show you how to hit that dance floor!
