Drumdrops has released the Vintage Funk Kit BFD Pack. It is designed to allow users to recreate drum sounds from the 70s. It was recorded with the help of Jan Kincaid (Brand New Heavies) at the Ironworks studio in Brighton, UK by Mike Pelanconi. His Sonor HiLite Drum Kit was sampled with a mixture of vintage cymbals and bonus percussion.
The Vintage Funk kit was created on a Sonor Hilite Kit tuned for a 70s funk sound. It comprises a 22" x 14" Bass Drum, a Sonor Sonorlite 14" x 6.5" Snare Drum, a Sonor Horst Link 14" x 5" Snare, a 16" x 16" Sonor HiLite Floor Tom, and two Hilite Rack Toms, a 12" x 9" and a 10" x 8". The cymbals used were Zildjian 14" New Beat Hi-Hats, a Bosphorous Master Series 18" Crash, an 18" Sabian HHX Legacy Crash and a 20" Zildjian K Custom Dark Ride. Percussion for this kit includes cowbell, tambourine and a shaker.
The BFD Pack can be loaded into FXpansions BFD3, BFD Eco or BFD2. The pack contains 36 articulations and the kit has been recorded in up to 120 velocity steps. This pack contains 12405 samples. The kit includes twenty seven groove palettes and 118 Funk loops. All of the funk loops were layed by Jan Kincaid the drummer from the Brand New Heavies.
