Adam Monroe Music has released an updated version of Adam Monroe’s Beats, a drum sample instrument plug-in for Windows.
The new version includes a huge update to the code base, vastly improving functionality, as well as adding Kontakt versions.
Generally speaking, the program functions much differently, better, and has been been heavily debugged, the result of over a month of reprogramming and testing.
Adam Monroe’s Beats features 31 drum kits, the ability to swap out parts of each kit, 500 MIDI beats, 16/24-bit samples, and over 4 gigs of sample data.
Changes in Adam Monroe’s Beats
- All parameters are now automatically saved per-project/per preset, note assignments and user kits can be saved outside of projects.
- Added the ability to name/rename “User Kit” presets.
- Code is more maintainable, elegant, efficient, and simplified.
- I/O code debugged.
- Presets and program settings are now hard-coded into program (in case of resets).
Adam Monroe’s Beats is available for purchase for the introductory price of $35 USD.

Rankin Audio has launched Future Beats and RnB, a sample pack that takes influences from a wide range of music, from RNB to Garage, Soul and Substep, covering anything modern yet soulful.
Pioneered by artists like Flying Lotus and Flume, and with labels like Future Classic pushing the sound, people having been kicking back and getting deep more than ever.
The pack contains everything you need to construct the most soulful of bass music. Musical loops including lush analogue-styled synth chords, wonky leads and soaring smooth pads provide the soundscape while the deep basses and driving drum tracks give it something to latch onto.
There’s also 85 drum hits from big claps, fizzy crashes, digital percussion and low-fi subby kicks. And to top it off and take everything just that little be further, we have included the proper secret spices for your future bass music: chopped vocals, vocoders, rhythmic textured foley loops and beautiful organic FX hits that will be the cherry on top of your deep beats.
The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £24.95 GBP. One-shots and loops packs are also sold separately.
