Drumdrops Backbeats, Breakbeats & Effects WAV
Inspired by the drum breaks that have been sampled from early recordings of funk, jazz, and R&B thousands of times, this library has been made with the same sound in mind but with a modern vintage approach. It includes loops, one-shots, and fills for you to speed up to create hard hitting breaks, slow down for a fat back beat, or simply leave alone for a crunchy groove.
The breakbeats were recorded with a cranked snare drum and hard kick beater whereas the backbeat samples have muted toms and snare, fatter kick beater, and a different cymbal selectionwith a seed-shell shaker on the hihat. The original idea came from using a Shure M 267 preamp/limiter on an analogue drum kit to create loops in a session for an electronic producer. The M 267 has four preamps fed to a summing amp with switchable level-loc style limiter that gives it it’s unique character. These packs were therefore recorded with 4 mics on thedrum kit (kick in, snare top, overhead and front) and fed straight to the M 267!
