D16 Group Plasticlicks

D16 Group has announced the release of Plasticlicks, a sample library featuring over 1,500 totally fresh, ready-to-use drum sounds.

All the sounds in this collection have been designed completely from scratch with the goal of creating something truly unique in the world of electronic drums. Not a single preexisting sample has been used during the creation of these sounds: they’re all completely original, built from the ground up—a full spectrum of carefully designed drum sounds.

Get it now and you’ll see how rich and evocative synthetic drums truly can be when done right! Within this library you’ll find surgically precise sounds that will cut through your mix like a hot knife through butter. You’ll find short, aggressive percussion sounds and longer, metallic stabs; expressive and clean kicks, sometimes grimed with unusual hums. From entirely and purposefully synthetic timbres to almost acoustic-sounding drums, you’ll find it all here!
