Standard Beat Company has introduced Boiler Room Beats, a new collection of drum samples and loops.
Loosely influenced by both the architectural qualities of the Standard Beat Co. recording studio and the roomy stylings of mid-nineties Beastie Boys records, Boiler Room Beats gives programmers a set of unique tools to create everything from massive hall beats to intimate down-tuned classics.
We took a makeshift kit, threw some bad mics on the floor, put some classic mics in the hall, and put a really good AEA ribbon overhead. We also sampled various percussion pieces including bongos, cowbell, bodhran, and doumbek.
Boiler Room Beats features
- Multi layer, velocity sensitive drum kit for Native Instruments Kontakt 4 and Battery 3.
- 299 individual hits in 24 bit .wav format.
- 42 processed loops in both .rex and 24 bit .wav formats.
- Composed using all original samples recorded with Lavry Blue conversion.
The sample pack is available to purchase for $29 USD.
