MPC-Samples has announced the release of Beat Box Kit: MPC & Maschine Edition, a one-of-a- kind MPC & Maschine powerhouse, with 40 original beat box loops from MSXII Audio coupled with a fully multisampled human beat box drum kit featuring 184 beatbox sounds & timbres for creating your own realistic beat boxing loops, riffs and sequences.
This kit uses the exact same programming techniques found in our multisampled acoustic drum kits with an array of multisampled human beat box sounds mapped out across your pads in a finger drumming friendly layout with velocity-sensitive sample switching for incredibly accurate and life-like beat boxing performances using nothing but your MPC/Maschine pads!
The kit is fully tweaked and optimsed for all MPCs, with a WAV version for the MPC Renaissance, MPC Studio, MPC Element, MPC1000/2500/500/JJOS/4000 and a legacy MPC SND version made for the MPC2000/XL/3000/60. In addition to the velocity switching on each pad we’ve also incorporated random layer playback to give an even more realistic human feel on the MPCs that support this feature (JJOS2/XL, MPC Software, MPC5000).
Also included is a Maschine MGRP kit that features up to 8 velocity switched layers per pad, fully compatible with NI Maschine 1.8 and 2.x.!!
As well as the core beatbox sounds used directly in the kit (kicks, snare, open and closed hats, claps, shaker, snap & toms), we’ve included over 100 bonus sounds including ‘breathing’ sounds, fx, percussion and alternate snare, kick and hat timbres. Finally there’s the fantastic 40 beatbox loops found in the original ‘Beat Box Kit’ sample pack from MSXII Audio, covering tempos of 85 bpm, 92 bpm, 135 bpm and 141 bpm, all recorded through a Neuman TLM 102 Microphone for a cool and classy saturated tone.!!
Beat Box Kit: MPC & Maschine Edition is available exclusively from MPC-Samples.com, priced at $26.99 USD.

MSXII Sound Design has launched the Beatbox Kit, a sample pack featuring a collection of live “beat-boxed” breaks.

Uppercussion has announced the release of Vocalisms, a collection of 58 drum kits made exclusively from sounds produced by the human voice and mouth.
The VOCALISMS drum kits feature all kinds of vocal percussion: beatbox, shouts, buzzes, chirps, hard consonants, exaggerated vowels, phonetic exploration and a lot of experimentation. Each kit includes the standard drums such as kicks, snares, hihats, cymbals and toms, but also melodic elements such as bass lip buzzes, tonal hits and other sung one shots.
The sounds in Vocalisms are 100% “orally originated”, meaning that no other non-vocal sounds were used and the human voice is the only sound source…even if it doesn’t always sound like it. The samples were processed in a plethora of different ways to give an even broader palette of drum kit sound possibilities.
- 58 drum kits in 4 categories (Advocal, Evocal, Havocal, and Provocal).
- 928 samples, 16 samples per kit (24-bit, 44.1 kHz).
- Formats include Ableton Live Pack, Maschine, Geist, Battery, Kontakt, EXS24, Halion and Reason NN-XT, and single WAV samples.
- Sample folders are easily accessible and sorted by sound type.
- Total size is 120 MB.
- Additional Ableton Live Pack content:
- 58 Live Clips.
- 58 MIDI patterns (one in each Live Clip).
- 8 Macro assignments per kit.
The sample pack is available to purchase for $49 USD. The Ableton Live Pack is only sold through Ableton.com, priced at $49 USD / 39 EUR.
