Ugh, stop twitching
do-it-yourself 80s chease made easy
music Posted 2001-01-09 04:44:00 by Jim Crawford
I found a Casio MT-68 and a book called “200 Drum Machine Patterns” at a swap meet a couple of days ago. I could tell the patterns were low-quality chease by looking at them, and I didn't expect much better from the MT-68, but I got it -- the drums used by the preset accompaniment patterns were awesome high-grade 80s chease.

I went mad one night and sampled the drums and tracked all 200 patterns. Here's the result, in Impulse Tracker format. The MT-68 did not, unfortunately, have the cymbal, clap, or cowbell sounds required by the book, so I filled in the gaps with some samples from a TR-808 sample pack.
