BITKITS is a free collection of ten 8-bit drum kits. The samples in Bitkits come from a time when 8-bit sounds were the standard for video games and digital synthesizers. The kits give you 8-bit versions of kick, snare and hihat sounds, as well as a large collection of beeps, buzzes, noises, arpeggiations and other sound effects typical of the 8-bit era.
All of the samples in Bitkits were created using the BitRate digital drum machine for Reaktor, created by Icebreaker Audio. BitRate features realistic emulations of digital sound engines from the late 80s and early 90s in an intuitive interface. The included Maschine kits and samples are tagged for the Maschine browser.
