Blanketfort Audio has announced the release of DRUMS for TAL Sampler, a sample library featuring a collection of drums created from a remote recording session done by Jamie Coghill during Melbourne’s ‘Big’ lockdown of 2020.

“Episode 1: The Jimmy C” features a total of 194 samples which were used to create 13 individual kits and a further 14 modified kits aiming squarely at dirty, noisy, dark and dusty drum sounds.

Instead of building a huge, multi-mic drum instrument with 100 round robins, the best one shots were picked and moved into a drum machine ‘pad-style’ workflow.

The samples were then processed through a variety of analogue tape machines, guitar pedals, plugins, a crusty old mixer and TAL Sampler itself to create a group of kits ranging from raw, garagey rock drums to subby, dubby, noisy hip hop sounds.

DRUMS is an exploration of pushing a single set of samples in multiple directions.

The sample library is available for purchase from Blanketfort Audio for $10 USD.
