« A rhythm card for the RY30 »Published on 07/18/12 at 10:54
The Tommy Aldridge card includes realistic drum sounds, and it is part of the artists series of the rhythm sounds cards, for use with the Yamaha RY-30 and other Yamaha drum machines. It is fairly easy to use, I just plugged it into the unit before powering it up, and the sounds were present in a later kit. They sound great for samples that are nearly 20 years old, that is for sure! And that's not usually the case when it comes to realistic and acoustic drum samples. Certainly you would expect vintage electric drum sounds to sounds good on a unit this old, but even the acoustic sounds are pretty good.
Overall, if you own the Yamaha RY-30 or other compatible drum machine, it's definitely worth checking out the RSC3072 Tommy Aldridge card, if you can find it. Even if it's just to take in a piece of history, a little card like this can be pretty interesting!
