Those drum machines take external samples, too.

     Namely,
     things like dynamic range compression with artistically chosen
     attack/release times, gating, dynamic EQ, etc.  Oversights in the
     recording process like allowing a fair degree of clipping also make
     things sound a lot harder too.  Heavy clipping is not uncommon in
     the
     samples of these early drum machines!
