Drumdrops takes the original sampling concept to the next level by offering you the best live drum tracks and drum samples in the business. We focus on the highest quality sound recordings. Using some of the leading drummers, most accomplished and passionate professional producers and engineers, high quality drum kits and some of the world's best commercial recording studios in the business.
To understand what we offer you have to understand how we make our products. Firstly, we record an album of drum tracks in a chosen genre. We use a variety of snares, tune the kits to fit the chosen genre, add percussion where it is needed and focus on getting the best sound possible over a range of different tempos. We always record the drum tracks on to 2" analogue tape to add warmth, bottom end and tape saturation and where possible we use vintage consoles and microphones. The raw recordings are provided as drum multi-tracks giving the user total control. Choose between ambient or close mics, from subtle to bombastic, distort and echo or over the top compression FX, trigger samples or claps. Or, use noisegates or drum synth FX for a vintage 80s style.
The multi-tracks are then mixed into a variety of drum stems including full kit, percussion, kick drum and snare and these make up our stems pack which is perfect for those of you who do not want to experiment with mixing but want to build a track easily with the ability to have some control over the individual drums.
Finally, we take the stem packs of each drum track and chop them up into about seven four bar drum loops which are provided as Apple Loops, WAVs and Rex 2 files making it possible to load them into any drum machine or sampler. You can purchase each pack on a track by track basis or by the album.
During the recording session we also sample up each drum and cymbal in multiple velocity levels. A Painstaking job. We then set to work in providing you with three different sample packs. These packs are made to be as versatile and useful as possible so that you can load them into any software sampler, drum machine or DAW out there. To find out more about our formats click here.
Great care and attention to detail has been taken to make sure all our titles are world class, user friendly and inspirational. With over 400 drum tracks we cover multiple genres including Hip Hop, Ska, Reggae, Disco, Funk, Rock, 70s Americana, New Wave, Pop and more are being added. Our tracks are loaded with attitude and guaranteed to inspire to the maximum. The products are perfect for songwriters, musicians, engineers and producers. As long as you have proof of purchase everything is royalty free available to be used again and again.
