Beta Monkey Music has announced the release of two drum sample libraries.

Beta Monkey Double Bass Mania VII

Double Bass Mania VII features a collection of modern metal drum loops and samples.

Double Bass Mania VII unleashes thick and intense grooves with live feel and modern metal sensibility, delivering essential metal songwriting tools that strike the balance between must-have metal grooves you’ll need, and insane, pushing-the-boundaries drumming that will inspire your playing to new highs.

Brutal metal grooves, with brutal, undeniable heaviness, are only the beginning. Recorded and mixed by one of metal’s leading producers/engineers, Double Bass Mania VII has the modern metal drum sound locked in. Deep and punchy toms, crisp and cutting snares, dark and shimmering cymbals, powerful and controlled kicks – all the separation of drum sounds you need to pull off modern metal are baked in the mix. Drag and drop the loops into the DAW of your choice and you are on your way to writing new metal today. Modern metal drumming attack, power, tone, technique, and feel – it’s all here.

Beta Monkey Drum Werks II Reloaded

Drum Werks II: Reloaded features 600 hard rock drum loops.

Re-released for 2014, Drum Werks II: Reloaded delivers powerful and aggressive hard rock drum loops for today’s modern hard rock mixes. With 100% new drum loop and sample content, this collection serves up only the heaviest grooves for multiple hard rock songwriting styles that demand a modern rock drum sound.

A high-definition and powerful mix is at the heart of the all-new Drum Werks II:Reloaded. We took the pure hard rocking spirit of the original Drum Werks II and gave it a complete sonic and groove update. Simply put, it’s bigger, louder, and heavier. Aggressive and unrelenting powerful hard rock drum tracks are a drag and drop away in the DAW software of your choice, including ProTools, Logic, GarageBand, Cubase, ACID, Ableton Live, Studio One and more.

Both sample libraries are now available for purchase for $39.99 USD each.

These highly flexible patches are perfect for all styles of music, from soudtack, to experimental and atmospheric music. The final preset in the set is an awesome metallic “drum kit”, assembled from our huge Rust 3 library. We’ve included all of our favorite user controls in the Kontakt instruments, including the “Edge” knob for extreme shape transformations and the “Wind” convolution reverb selector, with 5 great halls/rooms and 5 creative FX impulses.

Hzandbits Metal Bars & Bells

Hzandbits has announced Metal Bars & Bells, a sample pack featuring a collection of bell-like sound effects in 24bit/96kHz.

No actual bells were harmed in the making of these sounds – but several other metal objects were.

From crow bars and stainless steel soap trays, a selection of highly resonant and beautiful sounds were coaxed. From sustained tones to short percussive hits; from distinctive sinewaves to shimmering, phasey goodness.

This collection contains several sounds from each object, giving you plenty of musical variety. Drop them straight into your favorite sampler, add healthy doses of reverb, delay and other effects, and you’re off to see the wizard. Or something.

Metal Bars & Bells is available for $16 USD. A 50% discount is available to newsletter subscribers.
