MPC-Samples has announced the release of Tape to Dub Plate Vol 1 – Cymbal Hits, the first release in a unique new series of royalty-free drum hits and breaks from the indisputable heavyweight champion of the fat vintage drum sound, Mr Timmy Rickard (Monosole Music).
This first volume is filled with 50 of the finest Turkish handmade cymbals and hi hat hits, each one recorded directly onto analogue tape, mixed through using analogue outboard gear, mastered onto a 12″ dub plate, and finally sampled back off of the vinyl. The result is the sound and vibe of the open hits and breaks that crate diggers spend so much of their time searching for.
The whole collection contains several types of cymbal hit; edge, bell, center, rolls and hi hat, and for those who prefer a cleaner drum sound, every sample is also provided in its original pre-dub-plate mix. Sounds are provided in both 16 bit and 24 bit WAV versions, and in an exclusive for MPC-Samples.com customers we’ve also included MPC program files for quick loading across your pads, with legacy MPC SND versions of all samples included, making this fully compatible with all MPC models straight out of the box!
Mixed using analogue compressors and eq’s stuffed with valves and transformers, before being sent to a Neumann cutting lathe. Performed and engineered with love by Timmy Rickard.
The sample pack is available for purchase for $16.99 USD.
