Wave Alchemy has announced the release of Drum Tools 01 – Minimal Techno & Tech House, a multi-format collection of over 1900 electronic drum samples. It's available to purchase now for £39.95. A selection of free samples from Drum Tools 01 are available to download and try (free registration required).
Drum Tools 01 offers over 1950 electronic drum samples. All sounds in the collection have been built from the ground up using an array of analogue circuitry and exclusive high-end outboard gear. Great care has been taken to capture the tone / vibe and warmth of the equipment used and all sample editing and file naming has been done by hand for maximum precision. The drum samples have been created by the creative layering and processing of drum machines, exotic synthesizers / modulars, field recordings and the recording of live drum and percussive instruments.
Although designed with Minimal techno & Tech House music in mind, Drum Tools 01 is also suitable for producers of House, Trance, Electro or even down-tempo / hip-hop styles.
