The Drum Broker has introduced Rump Shaker, a new Special Edition BLAP KIT from !llmind.
Throughout the last 14 years as a music producer, one instrument I’ve always been obsessed with was the synth bass. The bass is what gives a beat its true meaning. It evokes emotion, acts as a marching band leader during chord progressions, and knows how to act as team player with drums and percussion.
Here, I’ve partnered up with ‘Truth Falls Audio’ to develop a truly beefy & analog ‘straight to the point’ synth bass instrument, in Kontakt Player. With over 40 synth bass patches to choose from, this is the ultimate bass instrument to fulfill any and all of your bass and low-end needs. From beefy low-mid bass patches, to wobbly 50hz subs, to one-shot teardrop subs, we worked hard to cover all ‘basses’.
Every bass instrument was carefully sound designed by me, manipulating various sine wavs, square wavs & everything in-between. Don’t leave home without the ‘Rump Shaker’!”
The library is available for Kontakt, Reason, Wav & Ableton, priced at $39.99 USD.

The Drum Broker has released Cocaine Synths, a limited edition sample pack by !llmind.
“Aggressive, dirty, inspiring and addicting. In a nutshell, this is what Cocaine Synths brings to the table. Drawing inspiration from various analog synthesizers created and used in the 70′s & 80′s, I wanted to create a sample set of loops using those same synthesizers (aka ‘Cocaine Synths’) that evoke those emotions I was so fondly of listening to, growing up as a child.
Here, I’ve created 20 ‘moments’, equivalent to those same moments when the needle touches the vinyl, and you find that perfect section to loop, chop & create a masterpiece from. Warmth, depth, aggression and texture define this sound set. Owning these samples is a no-brainer.” – !llmind
The pack is limited to 100 copies, available for purchase from the Drum Broker for $24.99 USD.

The Drum Broker has introduced !llmind x SoundAssociation BLAP KIT: Electric Guitar Liqs, a new sample pack by Illmind and SoundAssociation.
“The electric guitar is undoubtedly one of the greatest instruments of our generation. Its textures and capabilities are near endless. From classic rock, to soul and funk, pop, disco, hip-hop, country and everything in between, this instrument often plays front and center.
Nowadays, there are hundreds of VSTs and software patches available (some of which are really amazing) that emulate the electric guitar. Still, none of them compare to the feel and complexity of the real thing. For this very reason, I’ve partnered with my good friends & amazing musicians, SoundAssociation, to create a well-rounded, unique set of electric guitar riffs.
Everything from dark 80 bpm muted riffs, to funky, light-hearted grooves at 100 bpm, we’ve created a set that draws from all of our influences. For most music producers who don’t play the guitar, it’s difficult to create human textures that no software plug-in can manipulate or duplicate. Our focus was to approach these riffs in the most “human-like” way. They are perfect to use as starting points or later additions to your productions, and are sure to spark a multitude of ideas.” – !llmind
Electric Guitar Liqs features
