RetroHit Drum Machine

As the 80s sound is back and has been creeping up in modern chart topper tracks by major artists, as well as new soundtracks for TV series and film, we couldn't hold back and had to release a drum plugin based on the hit sound of the 80s. Retro Hit is inspired from the pop/ dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980s. The plugin provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms, FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions. We wanted to provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/ musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music, rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own. The Plugin provides drum kits of 12 sounds per patch. These as visible as buttons that light up when played on the GUI.

Individual control per drum is also provided for Volume and Pan. Global settings for Pitch, Reverb, Attack and Sustain are also provided. Find mixed kits, kick drums, snares, hats, cymbals, toms, percussion and fx and mixed kits as preset kits to inspire you. All of the 600+ Drum samples are also provided as .wavs to use in other samplers such as hardware samplers and also controller based beatboxes such as Akai mpc and NI machine. You can also load them in any other soft sampler of your choice, or simply place them in your audio track. You can choose your method of production, making this a very versatile library.

These samples were recorded directly from vintage drum machines namely, EMU sp12, OB- MX, LINN DRUM and Fairlight. The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state pre-amps and compressors such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pres, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978.

Hardware Eq, compression and reverbs were applied to the dry samples to re-create the original 80s vibe. These sounds will be instantly recognizable and will inspire you to work fast and sound great.
