Drumdrops launches 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit

Drumdrops has announced the release of 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit, a multi-format drum kit sample library mixed by Alan Moulder.

Drumdrops 1970s Classic Rock Kit

This 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit is a truly spectacular kit. A deep sounding kick drum, five toms and a classic Slingerland Radio King 14″ x 7″ snare drum, makes this kit a great choice for anyone who wants to re-enact their 70s rock classics. However it is not a one-trick pony as often shown by the engineers and producers who use it on their records while working at the Pool studio in London where it resides. To get the best out of this kit we enlisted the help of one of the leading alternative rock mix engineers in the world – Alan Moulder.

Alan Moulder needs no introduction. Voted UK Producer of the year in 2014 for the BRIT awards and Music Producers Guild Awards, Alan is one of the UK’s most sonically innovative Alternative Rock Producer/Mixers. Working prolifically in the UK and USA, Alan has been at the helm of some of rock music’s most iconic records and his credits include Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, The Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, My Bloody Valentine, Them Crooked Vultures, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Arctic Monkeys, Led Zeppelin, Death Cab For Cutie, Foals and Royal Blood to name but a few.

The kit comprises a 24″ x 14″ Kick drum, 12″, 13″, 14″ & 15″ Rack Toms and an 18″ Floor Tom. The snare used was a 14″ x 7″ Slingerland Radio King snare. Cymbals used Zildjian 14″ New Beat hi-hats, a 21″ Zildjian Custom K Ride, a Zildjian K Dark Medium Thin 18″ Crash and a Zildjian Vintage Cie 16″ Crash.

The 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit packs are available for purchase at 20% off for a limited time, using voucher code slingerland20 at checkout. Any customers who previously purchased the Vintage 60s Gretsch Round Badge Soul Kit (any pack except the one shot sample pack) will have a free one shot sample pack of the Slingerland added to their account.

A Kontakt 5 pack and a BFD pack which are scheduled for release soon.

Toontrack releases Indie Folk EZX & Indie Folk MIDI

Toontrack Indie Folk EZX

Toontrack has announced the release of the Indie Folk EZX EZdrummer expansion library, focusing on capturing the organic, warm, intimate and ambient sound characteristic of the indie folk genre.

The EZX, aptly titled the Indie Folk EZX, was recorded at the Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, home to bands such as Fleet Foxes, The Shins and Band Of Horses. It comes with three complete vintage kits: a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge sampled with both sticks and mallets, a Ludwig from the 1950s as well as a Slingerland Rolling Bomber kit dating back to the 1940s. Also included are two tambourines, a hi-hat mounted tambourine jingle, an extra kick and snare as well as a 28″ floor tom.

Indie Folk EZX features

  • Three (3) complete kits.
  • Two EZXs in one! Each kit is available in two variations: a standard multi-mic mix and a classic four-mic mix.
  • Custom drums from the 1940s to the 1960s.
  • Default kit sampled with both drumsticks and mallets.
  • Recorded at Avast! Recording Co. in Seattle, WA.
  • Included MIDI performed by sampling drummer Stephen Belans.

The EZX is available to purchase for $89 USD / 69 EUR.

Toontrack has also launched the Indie Folk MIDI, a collection of grooves and fills.

Toontrack Indie Folk MIDI

With the Indie Folk MIDI pack, Stephen Belans delivers a wide and useful range of grooves and fills for songwriters that are looking to expand their horizon, go outside their comfort zone or rethink what role the drums can play in a composition.

“Sometimes just a simple heartbeat/backbeat feel is all that’s needed. Other times, the drums find their place at far ends of the spectrum. Some grooves stick to a smooth ebb and flow with a natural evolution of intensities while other ones use more dramatic transitions that don’t rely on traditional rock defaults”, says Stephen.

The Indie Folk MIDI pack cost $29 USD / 25 EUR.
