Big Fish Audio has announced the release of Gold School: Hip Hop Construction Kits, a collection of 50 Old School Hip Hop kits made with chart topping production techniques.

Big Fish Audio Gold School

Gold School: Hip Hop Construction Kits, from Big Fish Audio, aims to capture the warm analog old school sonic qualities associated with artists such as J. Cole, Chance The Rapper, Cozz, Nas and Wale, using modern chart-topping production techniques.

This collection of 50 kits implements all styles from old school rap, new school sampled underground, to top 100 billboard records. Unlike most products that have attempted this style, Gold School utilizes tons of outboard gear to ensure everything sounds as authentic and warm as possible. From compressors such as the API-2500 and the Tube-Tech CL1B, the legendary SSL board EQ and bus compression, to saturation via legendary tape machines, you will not be disappointed with the quality of these sounds.

It should be noted, this isn’t some ‘knock-off’ emulation of these legendary mixing tools, we actually used the real thing!

Gold School: Hip Hop Construction Kits is available in multi-format (Apple Loops, Acidized WAV & REX files) and for Native Instruments Kontakt, priced at $129.95 USD.
