MPC-Samples releases Tape to Dub Plate Vol 1 – Cymbal Hits

MPC-Samples has announced the release of Tape to Dub Plate Vol 1 – Cymbal Hits, the first release in a unique new series of royalty-free drum hits and breaks from the indisputable heavyweight champion of the fat vintage drum sound, Mr Timmy Rickard (Monosole Music).

Timmy Rickard Tape to Dub Plate Vol 1 - Cymbal Hits

This first volume is filled with 50 of the finest Turkish handmade cymbals and hi hat hits, each one recorded directly onto analogue tape, mixed through using analogue outboard gear, mastered onto a 12″ dub plate, and finally sampled back off of the vinyl. The result is the sound and vibe of the open hits and breaks that crate diggers spend so much of their time searching for.

The whole collection contains several types of cymbal hit; edge, bell, center, rolls and hi hat, and for those who prefer a cleaner drum sound, every sample is also provided in its original pre-dub-plate mix. Sounds are provided in both 16 bit and 24 bit WAV versions, and in an exclusive for MPC-Samples.com customers we’ve also included MPC program files for quick loading across your pads, with legacy MPC SND versions of all samples included, making this fully compatible with all MPC models straight out of the box!

Mixed using analogue compressors and eq’s stuffed with valves and transformers, before being sent to a Neumann cutting lathe. Performed and engineered with love by Timmy Rickard.

The sample pack is available for purchase for $16.99 USD.

Drumdrops releases Rogers Big R Dub Kit

Drumdrops Rogers Big R Dub Kit

Drumdrops has introduced the Rogers Big R Dub Kit, the ultimate dub kit sample library.

This kit has been used to record Drumdrops in Dub Volume 3 and Drumdrops in Ska as well as many other commercial releases.

The kit is comprised of a 24″ x 14″ Bass Drum, a Ludwig Black Magic 14″ x 6.5″ Snare Drum, a Ludwig Acrolite 14″ x 5″ Snare Drum, a huge 18″ x 16″ Floor Tom, and two Rack Toms, a 14″ x 10″ and a 13″ x 8″. The cymbals used were 15″ Zildjian A Sweet Hi-Hats and a 17″ A Custom Crash. Percussion for this kit includes a 14″ Timbale drum and a set of Bongos. Also included is some Electronic Percussion using a Boss PC-2 Percussion Synthesizer and a Tama Techstar TS-204.

The kit was recorded and mixed by UK producer, musician and engineer Mike ‘Prince Fatty’ Pelanconi. The drummer used was reggae specialist Horseman. His hard-hitting beats have backed the likes of Wailing Souls, Sugar Minot, Max Romeo, Barrington Levy, John Holt, Big Youth, Gregory Isaacs and many more.

The recording and mixing took place in Miloco’s The Ironworks in Brighton, UK. At the centre of the Control Room can be found a rare vintage 1970s BBC console. The outboard racks are full of great gear including a Lang PEQ-2 EQ, a Langevin EQ258A EQ, and plenty of dub reverbs. All of the drums were recorded without compression. Mike chose not to record any room microphones for this kit as he wanted a tight, dry Reggae sound.

The kit is available to purchase as a Kontakt Pack (£45 GBP), Multi-Velocity Pack (£15 GBP) and Single Hits Pack (£7.50 GBP).
