Yamaha RX21 Samples

is it legal to sample an old out of production drum machine and share those samples?

In a recent bout of nostalgia I found a local on Reverb who was selling an RX21 (my first drum machine when it was brand new/current!) and I sampled it for use on my Rample.

(Going to sample Dexed/original DX7 sounds and play them on an Octatrack and will be emulating my first rig! LOL)

Anyhoo - if it’s legal:

If it’s not legal, you didn’t see this post - in fact, you are dreaming.
Wake up and forget you ever saw this.

Note: I have a couple of romplers I’ve been sampling. If anyone is interested (a recording of a recording of a recording…?) I could post some of the samples off an Emu Orbit I made for my Rample.

I dunno - I figure everyone has their own samples and/or buys sample packs.

Thanks for the samples man! I think it’s legal… there’s about 1 million ‘name brand’ sample packs floating around out there and for sale.

Would love to have the Rompler samples or any others you make. Been really enjoying feeding the Rample.

Thanks, glad you can use them.
Seems everyone and their mothers left nipple want Roland Roland Roland. Im a dork and loved my Yamaha. Heh

I just have to find a better way to share files. Suggestions?

thanks for ripping and sharing the sounds, i don’t have a Rample (…yet…) but i do enjoy putting old drum machine sounds in my Rytm :slight_smile:

short term hosting i usually suggest WeTransfer, very safe and great for quick uploads of large files to one or a few people. files get taken down after a week iirc tho.

long term hosting for something as small as this pack would probably be easiest to just upload and set as a ‘shareable’ link with whatever cloud-hosting service you prefer: Dropbox, Mega, OneDrive, etc.
