Vintage Funk Kit
We all love the 70s Funk era, influenced by many and sampled 1000's of times. Recorded with a 70s sound in mind in a nice tight recording room. With the help of Jan Kincaid's (Brand New Heavies) we sampled his Sonor Hi Lite Drum Kit with a mixture of vintage cymbals and some bonus percussion. The kit was tuned perfectly for a 70s Funk sound. So dig out your wah wah pedal bring out the platform boots and build some perfect funk tunes with this formidable sounding funk kit.
The Kit was recorded at the Ironworks studio in Brighton, UK by Mike Pelanconi. Mike also recorded our 70s Funk drum track album 70s Funk Drops and set this kit up in a similar fashion.
This kit can be purchased in seven different packs.
The Kontakt Pack comes with the Drumdrops Kontakt Instrument for exclusive use in Native Instruments Kontakt version 5.5 (you will need the full version). The new Drumdrops instrument comes with it's own mixer section giving you control over the individual drum tracks and convolution reverbs that we have included. Each channel has four dynamics to choose from, two delays and two convolution reverbs. You can change the velocity curves of the drums and there is a randomisation feature to add subtle changes to make the drums even more realistic. The Kontakt pack comes with 46 separate articulations, 24 velocity steps and includes 5 round robins. This pack comes loaded with 12806 samples.
The Dual Kit Kontakt Player Pack The Dual Kit Kontakt Player Pack contains not only the Vintage Funk Kit but also the Vintage Disco Kit. Both of the kits in this pack are compatible with the FREE Kontakt Player. (Our Kontakt pack only works with the full version of Kontakt 5.5. Both of the kits contain all the features found in the kontakt 5 packs but they are also completely NKS compliant.
The BFD Pack is a sampler pack that can be loaded into BFD3, BFD2 or BFD Eco. The BFD pack contains the same samples that our Kontakt 5 Pack offers, meaning that BFD users can enjoy the same realism and quality that our Kontakt 5 users enjoy. It contains 36 articulations and the kit has been recorded in up to 120 velocity steps. You have full control over each drum and once loaded into BFD you can enjoy all the same features that you would expect from any other BFD kit. Once the kit has been recognized by BFD, just simply select your desired kit piece from the list in the same way that you would load any other drum in BFD. The BFD pack also includes 27 palette grooves and 118 Funk MIDI grooves played by Jan Kincaid.
The Multi-Sample pack provides up to 24 velocity steps of each articulation. Each sample included in this pack is a mix of the overhead, room mics and close mics. This pack comes with patches for Battery 3, Kontakt 5.5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Reason Refills, TX16Wx and SFZ (which is 1.0 compliant and has been tested with Plogue Sforzando, Cakewalk SFZ and Linux Sampler) but the samples can be used in any drum machine or sampler that reads 24 bit WAV files. We also include 16 bit samples for old school samplers. Some of the software patches (Battery, EXS24, SFZ and Kontakt) also support round robin samples. We have included three round robin samples of each velocity for added realism. The multi-sample pack now includes over 1500 MIDI drum loops covering a variety of genres and over 100 funk loops. This pack is a great choice for those who want multiple velocity articulations. This pack comes with 1709 samples.
The Drum Replacement pack is our sample replacement pack. This pack comes with three different patches - Slate Trigger V2, Drumagog V5 & V4 and DrumXchanger. Each patch uses different amounts of samples depending on the capability of the software. If you run any of these pieces of software then this pack is for you.
The All Samples pack contains the Multi-sample Pack, the Drum Replacement Pack and all the seperate mic samples from the Kontakt 5 Pack. This pack gives you ultimate flexibility. You get all the patches we create and three different packs of samples. It does not contain our Kontakt instrument which can only be found in the Kontakt pack. In this kit we have also included an SFZ 2.0 compliant patch (courtesy of Kent Dawson) which has been tested with Plogue Sforzando and it uses the seperate mic samples.
The One Shot Sample pack is our cheapest pack and a great pack for those who either just need one sample from each articulation (drum machine users) and no patches or for customers who want to check out the sound of this kit before purchasing any of the more expensive packs. Ask us nicely and we will knock the price of this pack off other packs for this kit if you upgrade.
Whichever pack you choose you can be reassured that is has the Drumdrops quality stamped all over it. Explore more of these pages to read about the kit and work out which pack is best for you.
