Particular releases Severed Bits – Malfunctions

Particular has launched Severed Bits – Malfunctions, a new collection of drums, cycles and layering FX.

a href=””>Particular Servered Bits - Malfunctions

This second “drum” library in the Severed Bits series is more focused on digital methods of messing audio up than the previous – though we, of course, massaged everything through a nice array of analog outboard gear before recording it – no digital bounces or renderings here! While it’s obvious use is in ratifying 4 to the floor electronic styles, the sounds will just as nicely mess up any downtempo or urban styles.

The samples can be used solely, but work even better for layering. Compared to the previous Severed Bits – Components installment, this pack has a lot more basic drums to use as a foundation, for layering the FXs on top of. A Battery kit is provided as a starting point for this, through the click of a button.

The sample pack is available for purchase for £29.95 GBP.
