The Drum Sample Broker has introduced !llmind Blap Kit Vol. 3, a new drum sample sound library.
I’ve collected, created, layered, and processed so many drums, but carefully handpicked this special collection for Volume 3. This collection is probably the “crispiest” one yet. These are some of my favorite drums, all with a focus on “snappy” snare attacks and thumpy/mid-low kick drums. I hope they inspire you to create amazing beats!
!llmind Blap Kit Vol. 3 features
- Over 160 NEW drum sounds (kicks, snares, hi-hats, claps, snaps, congas & tambourines) in 16-bit/44 WAV format.
- EXCLUSIVE drum-break loops played by !llmind and created from actual drums, eq’d and processed.
- All drum sounds were sampled into an Ensoniq ASR-10 AND Akai S-20 at 33khz/12-bit for maximum warmth + punch! NO reverb or delays added make layering easy and more flexible.
- NO compression or saturation/flat “pancake” sounds.
- Carefully mastered just “under-zero”. NO nasty “digital-clipping”.
- All drum sounds were hand-picked, created, and stripped by !llmind himself from his personal drum stash.
- Includes drum kits used on actual songs !llmind produced for 50 Cent, Kanye West, Common, Scarface, Little Brother, Ludacris, 2 Chainz & more!
The sample pack is available to purchase for $24.99 USD.
