The Drum Broker has launched Midnight Melodies, a sample pack featuring original samples by Erik Jackson.
First we have a Wurlitzer electric piano struck with Mallets and Plucked with guitar pick. Processed through EMI Vintage Plate Reverb. The Strings were plucked to create melodies, broke down in to 3 chordal categories. A minor – C minor – G minor. I also went back to the Wurlitzer and created pads to add to the melodies. These are lush sounding pads to add to the melodies. The sounds are not cut as perfect loops, I left the tails on for chopping them into new samples. They can be looped though.
The pads and the melodies were recorded through a Neve 5316. I also went back to the Wurlitzer and plucked the 3 minor scales I used for the melodies. You can easily load these scales onto your pads and play. Any pad you hit will sound good.
Next I recorded bass-line scales from the Moog Sub Phatty and Minitaur. These were recorded through the SSL AWS 900. There are also some chopped breaks to add to your arsenal, dig deep, dig in and create something different.
This entire sample pack is created in 3 chords and scales – A minor – C minor – G minor. Load the proper sounds in your sampler and tear it up. This is a very creative pack, made for very creative individuals.
The sample pack is available for purchase for $24.99 USD.

The Drum Broker has introduced Erik Jackson Presents – The Essential 808, a drum sample pack featuring the sounds of the Roland TR-808 drum machine.
Forget all other 808 Drum Kits! The Drum Broker teamed up with sound designer Erik Jackson to introduce an essential 808 Drum Kit designed and built from the ground up.
Erik meticulously sampled his Roland TR-808 through a Avalon 737sp, tweaking and recording every parameter on the classic Roland Drum Machine/Synthesizer. Paying careful attention not to alter the original sound and analog flavor of the TR-808, Erik ensured that he didn’t push the compressor too hard during the re-sampling process. Finally Erik created a kit that includes tuned hats, snares, and kicks. Each sample is labeled what note and key they are in.
The sample pack is available from the Drum Broker for $24.99 USD.
