Breaker is all about the breakbeat, DIY-style. We set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic. Our goal was to build a big, fat and extremely diverse drum palette that evoked an equal blend of warm, smooth '70s funk and cold, hard '80s electro and pop. We created a drum library that is truly electro-organic: authentically electronic in sound but organically playable, providing the best of both worlds.

First, we captured a huge collection of over 80 multi-sampled drum kit and auxiliary percussion elements, all bone dry and up close, with 8 velocity layers per note. Then we multi-tracked and re-sampled them, stacked tightly and a dozen layers deep, to grab a ridiculously tight, rich, aggressive and punchy tone and an ultra-wide, vibrant stereo field. Then we piped them through old analog signal paths, to induce a little crud and mild generation loss, with a generous helping of extra gain, pushing the sound straight over the edge into a fat, saturated, tonal beast.

The tone is ripe to be chopped, diced, sliced, flipped, trashed, drilled, derezzed, degraded and granulated. It's geared toward hip hop, electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n' bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip hop, illbient, dub-step, house, and whatever fusion you can imagine. The sonic character can take digital, tape, or tube distortion and FX of all kinds and soak it all right up. The sound is fat, dirty and raw right out of the boombox, but a twist of a knob or two and you've got a searing, brutally crisp jungle kit ready to go.

For Breaker, we added a Remapper feature in an efficient four layer GUI to help you quickly get your groove on. We also created brand new ambiences and atmospheric pads from the raw source recordings, as well as 20 new custom FX presets to give you instant inspiration for your next beat.
