If you've spent any amount of time listening to the band MUTEMATH, surely at some point you found yourself air drumming your heart out. It happens to all of us. Drummer, Darren King can have that influence on you. He is recognized as one of the most passionate and talented drummers in music and the only thing more brilliant than his playing is his unique approach to capturing his sound. We spent days in the lab with Darren pulling together one of the coolest and most beloved samples libraries in our catalog. Unpolished and filthy in the best way possible, Darren’s drums are processed and pushed hard through API preamps, various compressors, and Studer and Teac tape heads. This library offers a variety of kicks, snares, toms, and cymbals — all in greatly detailed multi-velocity samples. Couple these multi-velocities with hundreds of one-shots and a host of fully mixed beats and loops by Darren King. This is your opportunity to have the unique drum sounds of one of music’s most creative drummers.
