MPC-Samples releases The Raw 70s Kit for MPCs & Maschine

MPC-Samples has announced The Raw 70s Kit, a drum sample library for Akai’s MPC and Native Instruments Maschine.

MPC-Samples The Raw 70s Kit

‘The Raw 70s Kit’ is the second volume in our ‘Drum Evolution’ series featuring a fully multisampled 70s Ludwig Classic drum kit, recorded with an array of vintage microphones straight to 2 inch analogue tape, and mapped out perfectly into ready-to-play programs for all MPCs & Maschine.

Oozing with gritty character and tape saturated goodness, these are just about the filthiest, hard hitting multisampled drums we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. The kit comes with 16 different drum articulations recorded with 12-18 takes across the entire velocity range (259 samples in total) and for each MPC model (including all version of JJOS) we’ve created ready-tweaked ‘finger drumming’ kits that you can just load up and start playing.

There are 259 drum samples in total, each provided in 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV and legacy MPC sound formats, along with ready-tweaked programs guaranteed fully compatible with every single MPC model ever, all versions of JJOS, and Maschine 1.8/2.x.

The Raw 70s Kit is available to download for $24.99 USD.

Freemasons Tutorial – NI Maschine & Akai MPC swings in Logic Pro & Ableton Live

James of Freemasons wrote in to share a tutorial on how to get NI Maschine and Akai MPC swings natively inside Logic Pro and Ableton Live.

Ever since the release of NI’s Maschine and more recently, the return of the Akai’s MPC range, beat production has taken a huge leap forward sonically and rhythmically. However, both of these machines use their own proprietary systems and protocols for swing quantise.

One of the biggest problems when using these inside DAW’s with your other VST’s and audio is that each has its own quantise system that is not (always) mirrored by the software, so quantising parts running alongside your chosen drum machine to the same swing has often been a case of guess work and time-consuming experimentation.

We always ran into this problem so decided to solve it, and after a few days of quite painstaking work, we have converted the swings from NI’s Maschine and Akai’s MPC into groove templates for Logic 9 / Logic X and Ableton live 8/9 (Maschine only, MPC grooves were already present).

We also created an instructional video showing how you can import these grooves into the applications and into your own Logic startup pages. We hope you enjoy using them as we do.

The groove templates are available to download here.
