MPC-Samples has announced the release of The Dirty Drummer 2, a sample pack featuring two complete multi-sampled drum kits dripping with crunchy, greasy vibes.

The kits are set up for intuitive finger drumming and painstakingly optimized for each and every MPC model ever made as well as Maschine & Battery 4.

Each kit features a full spread of essential drum articulations to create your own thumping head-nodding breaks including kicks, snares, open and closed hats, snare rolls, ghost hits, cymbals and matched percussion, all recorded over multiple dynamic levels to nail that natural acoustic kit sound.

The default kit set up for all samplers is for ‘velocity switching’ where each pad plays back one of up to four dynamic levels depending on how hard the pad is hit. For more recent MPCs (MPC Software, MPC Essentials, MPC5000 and JJOSXL) we’ve also built ‘cycle kit’ versions that play back a different sample timbres each time the pad is hit (‘round robins’) for ultra-realistic playback even with FULL LEVEL turned on.

There’s also an ‘MPC Expansion Pack’ included for MPC Software users, legacy MPC editions for the MPC1000/2500/500/JJOS/4000, memory-optimised programs for the MPC2000/XL/3000/60 and dedicated versions for Native Instrument’s Maschine and Battery 4.

Thumping organic drum sounds, unparalleled compatibility and a second-to-none finger drumming experience.
