Anybody have a Wendel Jr...and could post samples?

Does anyone own a Wendel Jr. drum replacement unit with all the cartridges? If so, as a huge public service, would it be possible to post a recording of all the samples?

For all of the old drum machine samples out there on the net, I've been unable to find any Wendel Jr. samples (other than four samples -- Ace Wilson Snare, Daryll Gwynn Kick, Heart Kick, and Heart Snare).

Weirdly enough, I wasn't able to find any YouTube videos of the Wendel Jr. in action. I know this machine was used on hundreds of well-known recordings, but other than the four above samples, I'm not really sure what the other individual samples sound like.

Thanks!

My cousin just bought one. The point of the thing isn't to get the sounds...it's to have the ability to do live drum replacement at the speed of .3 ms!!! However, maybe he'll be willing to post the samples...

totally agree!

It was the reason I got the hardware.. As i was mixing a few tape albums two years back that really was looking for that sound...

Is that faster than the SPX90 Freeze?

Not sure but it's really dang fast.

So far, I'm not crazy about the sound of the Wendell Jr., but it is pretty dang good if you're looking for that really tight Donald ***en clean 80s thing. Compared to the LinnDrum, though, it just doesn't have much character for kick and snare. The crash sounds pretty cool. Hi-hats are pretty nice, too, but I haven't been able to get them to work seamlessly to replace existing hi-hats. Haven't tried toms yet, which I imagine are quite good.

I only ask because I've been using SPX90's and other Yamaha "freezers" to Wendelize stuff for probably 30 years, they work great and they're cheap. Only catch is that you have to reload the sample every time you power down.

Here for the gear
 

Are you still interested in selling your Wendell jr. samples.
What samples do you have and how much?
Looking for the Steely Dan Gaucho drum sound.
Only been able to find the 4 samples that have been posted on the net.
(Ace Wilson Snare, Daryll Gwynn Kick, Heart Kick, and Heart Snare).
