Keep the faith brothers and sisters, its time for us to present our Northern Soul kit.
Built around a Ludwig Super Classic kit (22in kick, 12x8 and 16x16 toms), featuring multiple snares from Yamaha, Mapex, Gretch and custom shop Meinl cymbals, we recorded this sample pack at London's legendary Livingston Studio 1 with session superstar Steve Taylor.
Utilising Livingston's stellar collection of vintage mics from Neumann, AKG, Coles and AEA into pre-amps from API, Telefunken, GML and Neve this kit will give you the authentic sound to create those signature Northern Soul insistent backbeats and much more.
The Multi-Sample pack provides up to 6 velocity steps of each articulation. This is fewer articulations than some of our other kits, but we of course have reflected this in the price! This pack can be used in any drum machine or sampler that reads 24-bit WAV files, and we've included patches for Kontakt, Slate Trigger, EXS, Battery and Ableton. It also includes 800 MIDI loops in various genres.
The Single Hits pack is similar to the Multi-Sample Pack. It comes with the same patches as the multi-sample pack but only contains three velocities of each articulation. The samples come as 24-bit WAVs. If you run any of these pieces of software and want a more basic sounding kit then this pack will be perfect.
The One Shot Sample pack is our cheapest pack and a great pack for those who either just need one sample from each articulation (drum machine users) and no patches or for customers who want to check out the sound of this kit before purchasing any of the more expensive packs.
