That Sound has announced the release of 1985 Drums, a new drum sample library.

That Sound 1985

There was a time when toms were king.. the more you had the better.

1985 Drums transports you back to the mid eighties when long gorgeous tom fills were boss. These drums inspire new music with with their modern application and amazing retro nostalgia.

1985 Drums comes with 5 Toms, 6 Concert Toms, 2 Kicks, 3 Snares, Hats and Cymbals all in multi-velocity. We cut these drums in a huge room on Neve preamps with top shelf condenser and ribbon microphones. We then mixed them with some 1985 flair through an AMS RMX16 reverb.

This pack contains multi-velocity samples mixed as Dry, Natural, Big and 2 AMS settings for classic mid ’80s sound. You will also receive 35 Radical Clap sounds straight from that era and 25 reversed drum sounds.

The 1985 Drums Standard pack is available for purchase for the introductory price of $30 USD (regular $35 USD), and the Deluxes version which includes all the samples plus presets is $35 USD (regular $45 USD), until May 9th, 2015.
