Drum Broker has released Beat Suite, a sample pack by professional sound designer and producer Erik Jackson.
Everything was recorded by Erik using minor chords in the scales of Am, Cm, Em. Erik used three different Moog Synths to create the scales ( Moog Sub Phatty, Moog Slim Phatty, & Moog Minitaur).
There are 2 sets of breaks, 20 in total, 10 are from Erik Jackson’s Sunday Breaks (These are exclusives and not included in the the Sunday Breaks Kits/Packs featured on The Drum Broker site) the remaining breaks are from Erik’s Akai MPC 2000XL
The Chords and Scales are from a beautiful Fender Rhodes Electric Piano. Erik amped the classic electric piano through a Fender Twin Amp and recorded the amp using two Audix Microphones. These aren’t your typical “boring”/”dull” chords that can be found in other sound designer’s packs, they were played as phrases and add a touch of soul to your Chops. Load up the scales and play away!
The Minimoog Bass tones were all recorded in C. This allows you to drop them into your MPC or Maschine and hit “16 Levels” and go. Be careful, these are very low basses. Your computer speakers will not pick them up. These will give you a rumble you will not get from your typical VST bass.
The Rhodes Loops and Phrases are for backdrops to build your song over. They were all recorded very mellow. Vibes in here!
The sample pack costs $24.99 USD.
