Industrial Strength intros Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks

Industrial Strength Records has launched Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks, a new collection of live drum loops and samples.

Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks

Drive the beat home with this rock-solid Live Drum Pack from Industrial Strength Samples. With more than 700 MB of old-school Vintage Style Breakbeats keyed across all tempos, Evan Pazner Brooklyn Breaks cuts authentic grooves for any modern track looking for a little Brooklyn love.

This fierce audio set comes clanging out of Willamsburg, Brooklyn, where these homegrown sounds were produced by studio mavericks Derek Nievergelt and Lenny Dee using pro mics and super vintage preamps. All stems and loops were hand-cut by Justin Garish to create natural grooves that lock to any tempo. These pumped-up sounds still leave loads of headroom for you to do your thing. Virtuosic session drummer Evan Pazner performed each loop live to create an arsenal of tight, flexible sounds that work magic in any style from Nu Soul and Funky breaks to dirty DnB and booming Hip Hop.

Unlock a slew of original Live Drum Loops. Each loop can be dissected into its dry stems so you can riff up a storm, rearranging, flipping, and creating completely new rhythms. What’s more, you’ll find a selection of mixed loops and cuts prepped by the inventive Lenny Dee, the master of edgy and organic.

The sample pack is available to purchase for £29.95 GBP.

Akai Pro intros Rhythm Wolf analog drum machine & bass synth

Akai Professional has announced Rhythm Wolf, an analog drum machine and bass synthesizer module with built-in sequencing.

Akai Rhythm Wolf

The Rhythm Wolf is an authentic analog instrument that combines the coveted sounds of early electronic and hip-hop music with genuine Akai Professional workflow. Inspired by the classic analog beat machines and synthesizers of the past, Rhythm Wolf enables today’s musicians to harness iconic analog sounds for music production and performance. The drum machine consists of five highly-tweakable drum sounds and includes a kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion. Onboard controls allow users to customize the tuning, amplitude envelopes, and volume of each drum voice separately for precise real-time adjustment. The bass synthesizer features a selectable oscillator (sawtooth or square wave), classic filter design, a filter envelope with variable decay, and is capable of creating powerful bass sounds and squelchy leads.

Outfitted with six genuine MPC pads and a built-in 32-step sequencer, the Rhythm Wolf provides an ultra-responsive interface with a classic drum machine layout. Drum patterns can be fine-tuned using the Swing function, Pattern Select, and Tempo Control knob. A custom distortion signal path, activated by the “Howl” knob, adds grit and character for additional tone shaping. Rhythm Wolf features USB-MIDI, MIDI In/Out, a gate trigger, and integrates seamlessly with modern and vintage equipment. Two audio outputs enable producers and performers to mix percussion sounds and bass independently.

  • 5-voice analog drum machine and synth—authentic analog design that references classic rhythm machines and synthesizers.
  • Legendary analog drum sounds—kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion.
