Patchbanks has announced the release of Illmatik Drums, a new original drum library developed for master beatmakers digging for the best quality hip hop drums available anywhere.

Patchbanks Illmatik Drums

Get access to our top producers’ arsenal of drum libraries with over 600 one-shot samples of premium sounds sourced from live studio sessions that were recorded and crafted with new and vintage class-A processing gear, which includes: SSL, API, UREI and NEVE to name a few.

This collection comes loaded with the finest clean-cut core drum sounds sorted into eight categories: kicks, snares, claps, hats, cymbals, shakers/tambourines, toms and percussions — all covering various classic tones, grittiness and punchness for assembling the perfect drum kits.

But it doesn’t stop there — we kicked it up a notch by including wet and effected layers in each category that include recordings of live drum room/hall, classic electronic reverb and vintage spring reverb units, real tape saturation/distortion and a special 8bit crunch feature. These layers are essential for advanced beatmakers who prefer isolated sounds to craft their drums to preference by overlaying or doubling-up sample cells with no phase issues whatsoever.
