Yamaha MR-10 Sample Pack

Yamaha MR-10 Sample Pack

Download Sample pack


This cute little sample pack stems from a cute little machine: Yamaha MR10. All the samples in this pack are synthethic and reminds me of old computer game sounds. Which is not very odd since the MR10 drum machine was released in 1982. The samples are unique and not as synthetic as other small drum machines during this era. Shares similarities with 808/606, punchy and crisp. This sample pack is totally free to download from drumkito.com

The history of the Yamaha MR-10

I couldn’t find much information about the Yamaha MR-10. On Equipboard the MR-10 isn’t even listed. Which makes the research a bit tough. I’ve read somewhere that the Yamaha MR-10 was released in 1982. Since this drum machine was the first drum machine Yamaha produced, it also had tough competition at the time. It was discontinued when the RX-series was released.
