KING-4 is a re-creation of the MAESTRO RHYTHM KING MRK-4 American-made drum machine from the 1970s.
All the internal sounds have been carefully sampled and the rhythms re-created. Some of the rhythms have an intro / fill-in available.
The MRK-4 is an analogue machine and unlike the earlier MRK-2, uses tuned inductor coils to create the sounds.
VARI-64 Mk II is a re-creation of the HAMMOND AUTOVARI-64 Mark II analogue drum machine from the early 1980s.
Every internal sound has been sampled (or multi-sampled) with great care, and all 64 preset rhythms and 6 fill-ins have been accurately programmed at the same 48 pulses per quarter note as the original.
Other features from the real thing are the touch-tempo and programmable auto-vari sequencer.
KING-2 is a virtual Maestro Rhythm King MRK-2 drum machine from the late 1960s. It can be heard on George McCrae’s 1974 hit: Rock Your Baby as well as recordings by Sly Stone.
All the internal sounds have been carefully sampled — not just those on the front panel trigger buttons — while the cymbal and snare sounds are multi-sampled for more realism.
As well as the 18 rhythms from the MRK-2, there are two extra – DISCO and PASO DOBLE – that were only included on the MRK-1 model that preceded it.
POPS-7 is a virtual MINI POPS 7 drum machine (AKA UNIVOX SR-95) that was most famously used by Jean-Michel Jarre on his ground-breaking 1976 album: Oxygene.
It features all the original sounds — some multi-sampled — plus re-creations of the original rhythm patterns.
Combining BEGUINE with SLOW ROCK will get you the classic Oxygene Ⅳ rhythm.
ROLA-78 is an accurate re-creation of the ROLAND CompuRhythm CR-78 — a very influential drum machine released at the end of the 1970s.

Included are a set of KONTAKT snapshots featuring the rhythms from famous songs that use the CR-78.

The CORG-55B can toggle between two versions of the drum machine with different rhythm sets that were tailored for different markets.
In total, this package offers 149 unique rhythms, 51 intros and 54 fill-ins.
