Drumdrops releases Rogers Big R Dub Kit

Drumdrops Rogers Big R Dub Kit

Drumdrops has introduced the Rogers Big R Dub Kit, the ultimate dub kit sample library.

This kit has been used to record Drumdrops in Dub Volume 3 and Drumdrops in Ska as well as many other commercial releases.

The kit is comprised of a 24″ x 14″ Bass Drum, a Ludwig Black Magic 14″ x 6.5″ Snare Drum, a Ludwig Acrolite 14″ x 5″ Snare Drum, a huge 18″ x 16″ Floor Tom, and two Rack Toms, a 14″ x 10″ and a 13″ x 8″. The cymbals used were 15″ Zildjian A Sweet Hi-Hats and a 17″ A Custom Crash. Percussion for this kit includes a 14″ Timbale drum and a set of Bongos. Also included is some Electronic Percussion using a Boss PC-2 Percussion Synthesizer and a Tama Techstar TS-204.

The kit was recorded and mixed by UK producer, musician and engineer Mike ‘Prince Fatty’ Pelanconi. The drummer used was reggae specialist Horseman. His hard-hitting beats have backed the likes of Wailing Souls, Sugar Minot, Max Romeo, Barrington Levy, John Holt, Big Youth, Gregory Isaacs and many more.

The recording and mixing took place in Miloco’s The Ironworks in Brighton, UK. At the centre of the Control Room can be found a rare vintage 1970s BBC console. The outboard racks are full of great gear including a Lang PEQ-2 EQ, a Langevin EQ258A EQ, and plenty of dub reverbs. All of the drums were recorded without compression. Mike chose not to record any room microphones for this kit as he wanted a tight, dry Reggae sound.

The kit is available to purchase as a Kontakt Pack (£45 GBP), Multi-Velocity Pack (£15 GBP) and Single Hits Pack (£7.50 GBP).

Prince Fatty & Horseman in Saturday Night Style

Drumdrops has announced the release of Prince Fatty and Horseman In Saturday Night Style Volume 1, the first in a trilogy of new dub drum tracks available as drum multi-tracks, stems and drum loops and the first dub release since Drumdrops in Dub.

‘In Saturday Night Style Volume 1′ features 13 early 1980s dance hall (pre drum machine era) reggae drum tracks. Dub producer Prince Fatty and drummer Horseman have created a selection of steppers, two drops, one drops and flying cymbal patterns ranging from 65-142 BPM.

The album was recorded at The Ironworks studio in Brighton, UK, using an analogue combination of an Ampex M1200 tape machine and vintage pre-amps. The kit used was a Rogers Big R Dub Kit, which consists of a 24″ Kick Drum, 13″, 15″ & 18″ Toms, a Ludwig Black Beauty Snare, Remo Timbale, 15″ Zildjian hi-hats and additional percussion including a kete drum, cabassa, block, shakers, tambourine and electronic percussion, as well as a custom spring reverb.

All of the multi-tracks come with session templates including Pro Tools 9, Cubase 6, Ableton Live 8, Reason 7, Reaper 4 and Studio One 2.5. An OMF file is also provided should you need to export the 24-bit 44.1 WAVs into any other DAW. A beat tempo map is included to help sync up the drum machines.

The Stem and mix packs come with four full mixes of the tracks, with and without percussion, as well as separate drum stems of each individual drum component. These stems are designed for those who want the ready mixed versions of the track and will help build your track at a fast speed.

The drum loops pack contains about 5 different 4-bar loops taken from the track, which are provided as mixes of the individual drum parts, as well as the full mix. Available formatted as WAVs, Apple Loops and Rex2 files, they can be dropped into any software easily. Each loop pack contains about 12 different variations of the 5 loops making 60 in total.
