SP-1200 drum sound in Record/Reason

I like the 12 bit drum sound on a lot of early hip-hop records that the SP-1200 produced. I haven't found a way to get that sound in Record/Reason. Is there a way to change the bit rate to 12, or an effect that approximates it?

I messed with some of the digital scream distortion options that seemed like they were supposed to lower the bitrate or approximate that sound, but didn't get the wanted results.

I know they have sound libraries out there that supposedly match that sound, but I'd rather be able to use my own sampled drums from vinyl and process them myself, as those libraries so often don't have sounds I like, even if they did sample them through the SP.
