All of our samples are mixed so that they will fit great into any song with little to no processing. At the same time, they won’t box you into a sound: i.e.: too rock or metal. You can easily get more aggressive with compression/eq/distortion.
In addition to our fancy awesome name-association organization, our DRUMMER samples by PAUL MABURY, DARREN KING, NIR Z / JEFF JULIANO ICONS, and BEN PHILLIPS are put into 4 categories:
DryThis is only the close microphones, and they are perfect for tight drums on a record.
NATThis is our personal “Natural” blend of the close microphones, drum overheads, and just a small touch of room mic. These lively clean samples work in a multitude of situations.
We also has Overhead Only mic options on some libraries
BigThis is our personal “BIG AND ROOMY” blend. These samples are large and in charge, using all microphones with the rooms cranked.
RoomThese samples are only the room microphones. Blend these with the DRY or NAT samples to get more width, depth and dirt. Some libraries have 2 room options.
Using with Trigger
We are a big advocate for Steven Slate’s Trigger. We feel its the best out there for augmentation of drum samples or drum replacement. Here is a link: http://www.stevenslatedrums.com/trigger-platinum.php
You can download and use our FREE presets.
We’ve set up DRY, NAT, and ROOM presets for you. There is no BIG preset because the BIG drums are the NAT drums mixed with an ample amount of ROOM sample. We wanted you to be able to do your own BIG sample there within Trigger.
Our CONCEPT libraries starting with ELEMENTS, ORGANIC, FUTURE, 1985, CINEMATIC POP and more are built specifically as mostly One-Shot samples for artist and producers. However, mixers will be able to use many of these samples in their hits as well.
The producer samples are a variety of big, useful, current and modern sounds, to vintage and throw back sounds. There is a dynamic variety of Kicks from super large, to tight and attacky. Snares that are huge and verby, to super tight. Additionally some amazing uplifters, transition fx, claps, and just plain banging on things in the studio. There are hundreds of one-shot samples in this pack.
