Introducing Drum Tools 02, the definitive drum sample library for electronic music production.

A labour of love spanning 2 years, Drum Tools 02 delivers over 3,500 electronic drum samples and percussive hits, each carefully crafted from the ground-up using an array of drum machines, analogue synths, foley recordings and acoustic sound sources; processed individually on a sound-by-sound basis using a boutique collection of high-end outboard gear...

Pushing the boundaries of contemporary sound design, Drum Tools 02 delivers a unique collection of next-generation, production ready drums for modern electronic music production; an essential toolkit for Techno, EDM, DnB, Dubstep, Deep House, Trap, Electronica and everything in-between.

For added character, warmth and punch, selected samples have been re-recorded to ½ inch analogue tape via an Ampex ATR-102 analogue tape machine.
