Meldaproduction has launched MDrumLeveler, a dynamics processor specially designed for drums and percussive instruments.
MDrumLeveler is a unique tool specially designed for drums and percussive materials. It will improve the drum performances, stabilize drum hit levels, remove leakage and ambience and let you control the drum hits better than you ever could with traditional tools.
Traditional dynamic processors (compressors, expanders, gates…) detect levels of input samples and transform them depending on the transfer curve. This means that the gain is changing on every sample. This can be very well used to shape the sound itself, but it is hard to make it transparent if you want to level individual drum hits. MDrumLeveler on the other hand analyzes the incoming audio, detects events (drum hits for example) in it and transforms them somehow. That way it adjusts the level of each event, but does not alter the actual sound or color, so the results are unbelievably transparent.
MDrumLeveler for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of 59 EUR for a limited time (regular 149 EUR).
Meldaproduction has also announced a version 8.10 updated of its plug-ins, which brings major improvements to MCompare, ability to disable keyboard input, GUI improvements, optimizations, fixes and much more.

Soul Rush Records has launched Found Sound Percussion Hits, a collection of organic, real world recordings which aim to inject a feeling of life and soul into any production.
Recorded in East Berlin with a high end field recorder and a vast array of different drum sticks and everyday objects. Hammers, whisks, keys, broken bottles, cardboard boxes, broken kick drum skins and a dog! Everything we could think of to make warm, exciting percussive noises were used and the sounds collected from industrial and urban spaces, building sites, cafes, restaurants, at train stations, inside trains, in bars and on the city’s streets.
If you’re looking for warmth in your productions then these sounds are perfect for building your own drum racks with and adding a whole new sonic pallet to your work.
We have thrown in 40 bonus loops ranging from 103bpm to 174bpm which are ready to be dropped straight into the mix to give your tracks that extra depth that only a field recording can. They are ready to use now for your tracks or you can use them as inspirations for creating your own warm and organic beat patterns.
The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.

ModeAudio has released Fracture, a collection of 210 drum and percussion samples.
Every drum track benefits from a little sprinkle of gold dust… packing in armfuls of exotic drum samples, deftly-layered percussion and lashings of otherworldly sound design and intricate processing, let Fracture – Drum & Percussion Samples take your rhythms to brave and exciting new sonic worlds!
We’ve scoured streets and homes to put together a collection of delicate found percussion samples and then mangled, scrambled and stretched them into beautiful, complex gems! Whilst handfuls of the sounds in this collection are instantly recognisable as subtle hi hats or deep kicks, you’d never believe some of these sounds came from the real world!
Transformation is the key to this percussion library and we’ve included everything from wooden thuds morphed into metal, ceramic into canvas and plastic into plasma. In these 210 thumps, clangs, clops, taps, ticks, scratches and scrapes, we’ve created vortices, rumbles, bursts and resonances. From the recognisable to the down-right interstellar, everything you need to give your percussion sound several shots in the arm is right here and ready!
- 71 hi hat samples.
- 38 kick samples.
- 33 snare samples.
- 29 percussion samples.
- 22 rim shot samples.
- 11 clap samples.
- 6 abstract percussion samples
- 10 drum & percussion sampler patches.
- 4 channel strip presets.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £14 GBP.
