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.

This kit uses the exact same programming techniques found in our multisampled acoustic drum kits with an array of multisampled human beat box sounds mapped out across your pads in a finger drumming friendly layout with velocity-sensitive sample switching for incredibly accurate and life-like beat boxing performances using nothing but your MPC/Maschine pads!

The kit is fully tweaked and optimsed for all MPCs, with a WAV version for the MPC Renaissance, MPC Studio, MPC Element, MPC1000/2500/500/JJOS/4000 and a legacy MPC SND version made for the MPC2000/XL/3000/60. In addition to the velocity switching on each pad we’ve also incorporated random layer playback to give an even more realistic human feel on the MPCs that support this feature (JJOS2/XL, MPC Software, MPC5000).

Also included is a Maschine MGRP kit that features up to 8 velocity switched layers per pad, fully compatible with NI Maschine 1.8 and 2.x.!!

As well as the core beatbox sounds used directly in the kit (kicks, snare, open and closed hats, claps, shaker, snap & toms), we’ve included over 100 bonus sounds including ‘breathing’ sounds, fx, percussion and alternate snare, kick and hat timbres. Finally there’s the fantastic 40 beatbox loops found in the original ‘Beat Box Kit’ sample pack from MSXII Audio, covering tempos of 85 bpm, 92 bpm, 135 bpm and 141 bpm, all recorded through a Neuman TLM 102 Microphone for a cool and classy saturated tone.!!

Beat Box Kit: MPC & Maschine Edition is available exclusively from MPC-Samples.com, priced at $26.99 USD.
