The Drum Broker has launched Blap Kit Vol 5, a new drum kit sample pack featuring 130+ new drum sounds by Illmind.
Better drums. More placements. That’s sort of become the motto as of late, when talking about the “Blap-Kit” drum series. If all 5 BLAP-KITS were brothers, then this latest release, Volume 5, would be the outcast of the family. The dark horse. The outspoken sibling. “BLAP-KIT Volume 5″ is meant to break all the rules.
Unlike Volumes 1 – 4, Volume 5′s kick & snare hits are heavily layered, processed & reverbed/effected just enough to create really inspiring and over-the-top textures. Each sound follows tradition by staying just within “0″, but all tweaked just enough to “feel” and “sound” larger than life.
For the 1st time ever, we’ve included vocal “grunts” (James Brown-esq.), weird percussion, more drum-rolls (for those beat turn-arounds) and even long sub-bass stems, which can be used to create basslines or your own 808 kick drums. “BLAP-KIT Volume 5″ is a must have for your drum sample collection. Period.
The sample pack is available from the Drum Broker for $24.99 USD.
