ToneBuilder has released Driven Machine Drums, an extensive electronic drum sample library created from a unique blend of 14 drum machines and synthesizers, along with 9 analog coloration devices.

Driven Machine Drums highlights the natural sounding punch, depth, and warmth added by a collection of tubes, transformers, and hardware tape emulation. This library features a total of 1,684 sounds in 24-bit resolution, captured directly from the source using professional-quality cables and A/D converters. Each individual sound has been carefully edited by hand for tight attacks and natural decays.
