Drumdrops releases "Vintage Funk Kit" in four different sample packs

Drumdrops

Drumdrops has released the Vintage Funk Kit in four different sample packs:

The sample packs were made using a Sonor HiLite Kit owned and played by Jan Kincaid from the Brand New Heavies. It was recorded at the Ironworks studio in Brighton, UK by Mike Pelanconi. Mike also recorded Drumdrops 70s Funk drum track album 70s Funk Drops and tuned and recorded this kit in a similar fashion.

The kit comprised 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. Drumdrops have also included some samples from the digital Clap Trap. Everything you need for a 70s Funk kit.

The "Multi-Sample Pack" is a sample pack containing mixed stereo samples of each articulation. Drumdrops have included 24 velocities with 3 round robin variations and the pack totals 1709 drum samples. You can either use the built in patches or build your own, using the samples included. All of the samples are mixed from a combination of the close mics, room mics and overheads and recorded as 24-bit 44.1 kHz WAV files, meaning they can be loaded into almost any sampler or drum machine. Drumdrops have also included 16-Bit samples for legacy compatibility. To make things easier Drumdrops have included patches for some of the most commonly used software packages including:

  • Kontakt v5.2.
  • Battery v3.2.3.
  • EXS24 vLogic 9 / Logic X.
  • Ableton Drum Rack v9.0.5.
  • Reason v7.1.1 Combinator Refill containing NN-XT sampler & FX & patches for Kong & Redrum.
  • Maschine v1.8.0.
  • Geist v1.0.0.7.
  • Studio One's Impact v2.5.1 Soundset.
  • iDrum v1.73.625.
  • SFZ v1.0 Compliant (tested with Plogue Sforzando, Cakewalk SFZ and Linux Sampler.) TX16Wx v2.4.2 (Courtesy of Suleiman Ali).

Drumdrops also include 1500 MIDI Loops, covering a variety of genres including over 100 funk loops played by Jan Kincaid. The loops are mapped to the default MIDI map.

The Multi-Sample Pack of the Vintage Funk Kit is available from the Drumdrops store for £ 22.00.

The Drum Replacement Pack contains patches for Slate Trigger, Drumagog 4 & 5 and DrumXChanger and is available from the Drumdrops store for £ 12.50.

The "All Samples Pack" contains the "Multi-Samples Pack", "The Drum Replacement Pack" and all of the samples from the "Kontakt 5 Pack" (but not the instrument found in the Kontakt Pack). These separate close, overhead and kit mic samples are provided with up to 24 velocities of each articulation and 5 round robins and total 12806 24-bit WAV samples. Customers can build their own patches for their favourite samplers from these.

Drumdrops have also included an SFZ 2.0 compliant patch which utilises the separate mic samples and has been tested in Plogue Sforzando.

The All Samples pack of the Vintage Funk Kit is available from the Drumdrops store for £ 32.00.

The "One Shot Sample Pack" is a pack for customers who want to check out the sound of this kit or only need one velocity of each sample. The pack includes one velocity of each articulation totalling 44 drum samples. These samples come as 24-bit WAVs and 16-bit WAVs for the legacy drum machines. All of the samples are mixed from a combination of the close mics, overheads and room mics. The One Shot Sample Pack of the Vintage Funk Kit is available from the Drumdrops store for £ 7.50.

For the next month Drumdrops is offering these packs with a 20% discount. Use the voucher code funkkit20 at checkout.
