Clegg, founder of Dust Palace, is known for his work as a live drummer with Ellie Goulding, and musical director with Ellie, Mumford & Sons, Clean Bandit and others. He has huge experience in developing worldwide arena live shows for internationally acclaimed artists through his company Artclub Live.

This has enabled him to develop a unique approach to the use of technology, software and sample automation in the live environment. Clegg invited professional touring drummers, Adam Marcello (Katy Perry), Andrew Marshall (Billie Eilish),Gunnar Olsen (Bruce Springsteen) to help create additional royalty free drum loops and presets.

Spring, Echo, Distort (DP001) features three classic drum machines, sampled through six analog effect units to produce more than 1,200 samples. It also includes 180 artist loops from Adam Marcello, Andrew Marshall, and Gunnar Olsen, plus Ableton Live 10 presets.

The sample library offers inspirational, original and unusual sounds for beatmakers and producers of all musical genres. Made for studio production and live performance, Spring, Echo, Distort uses a wide range of analog spring reverb, tape echo and distortion, guaranteed to add a new dimension to any track.

Each effect component has been captured at four stages of input gain, through a collection of analog units coming back into Ableton thorough Neve 1073 pre-amps.

Spring, Echo, Distort costs £49 GBP.

Also available is the free KIK/SNR (DP000) pack. It contains fifty two one-shot samples recorded with vintage 1960’s kick and a 70’s snare processed through twelve of their favorite analog effects units.

Upcoming DP002-808 and DP003-CR78 packs use Roland’s 808 and CR78 electronic drum machines sampled through spring reverb, tape echo and distortion to offer 384 one-shots, 60 loops and Ableton Live 10 presets of pristine, contemporary drum sounds.
