  • The first 10 packs will be free.
  • The next 25 will be £15.00.
  • The next 25 will be £25.00.
  • and then both packs will revert back to there RRP.

After the initial offer is over both packs can be purchased with 20% off using the voucher code discoKBFD20 at checkout.

Here's what they say:

"Here at Drumdrops we love the original Disco era, influenced by many and sampled 1000's of times. So what is it about the Disco sound that makes it so enticing ? For us at Drumdrops it would have to mean a fat low end from the kick but with a little hi end bite to cut through the four to the floor groove, a warm and rich snare to keep that beat focused that of course tonally mixes with a clap sample. Sweet yet fast sounding 15 inch hi hats for a classy open hi hat sound. All Toms low and dead ready for the supersonic fills and breakdowns necessary to hype the dance floor into a frenzy."

"Remo ebony ambassador and evans hydraulic heads for the disco sound. Gaffer taped, damped with dust-cloths, tuned low and dead, the disco sound is finally back. Recorded with a late 70s sound in mind in a nice tight recording room."

Bonus cowbells, cabassa and tambourine and electronic analogue clap trap are included (in all packs except the Drum Replacement Pack).

The 70s Rogers Big R Kit was tuned for the disco sound. It comprises a 24" x 14" Bass Drum, a Sonor Sonorlite 14" x 6.5" and Sonor Maple 14" x 7" Snare Drum, a huge 18" x 16" Floor Tom, and two Rack Toms, a 14" x 10" and a 13" x 8". The cymbals used were 15" HHX X-Celerator Hi-Hats, a 17" Zildjian K Dark, an 18" Sabian HH extra thin Crash and a 20" Sabian Artisan Ride. The Kit was recorded at the Ironworks studio in Brighton, UK by Mike Pelanconi. Mike recorded Drumdrops' Disco Drops drum track album and set this kit up in a similar fashion.

The Kontakt pack supports the full version of Kontakt 5.5 and above and comes with the version 2 of the Drumdrops Kontakt instrument which has been rebuilt completely from the ground up by developers Divergent Audio. The new instrument comes with a new GUI and has many new features. Special focus has gone on the compatibility with E-Kits so e-kit owners can completely customise their kit to work with the instrument using the new MIDI CC data page. The new instrument includes many new features such as:

  • New mixer design with routing to DAW, 4 Aux Sends (2 reverbs and 2 delays).
  • New Channel Effects - EQ, Compressor, Shape, Tape Control.
  • Mic Mix section allowing you to mix all 5 mics of the kit (where applicable).
  • Drum Voice - edit the attack, hold, decay and tuning on each drum.
  • Humanize - Randomly change the volume, velocity, tuning & timing of hits.
  • New Master Effects Compressor, Limiter, EQ and Crush section.
  • Stereo width control and L/R swap.
  • Improved MIDI groove player now with 2496 loops (194 Disco loops).
  • New MIDI Map section for easily building and saving your own Maps.
  • MIDI CC Editing Page - Edit the parameters controlling the snare, hi-hat and cymbals.
  • The best E-Drumkit compatibility.
  • 145 Snapshot mix presets included, mixed by different engineers.
  • 12731 samples recorded in 24 velocity step and 5 round robins.
  • Switch easily between the two Sonor snares.
  • Clap trap, cowbell, cabassa and tambourine included.

The BFD Pack has been been built as an expansion pack for FXpansion's BFD3, BFD Eco and BFD2. The pack comes with 35 articulations which have been recorded up to 120 velocity steps and in total it contains 11965 samples. This kit also includes 13 groove palettes. These are split into 194 4-bar Disco loops. Included are a two mix presets per format.
