The Lower Rhythm has released the Culture Kit and the Swagger Kit, two sample packs featuring drums.
The Culture Kit features 138 samples taken directly from the kit of Brian Stabile, drummer of the prominent Orlando two-piece group Yogurt Smoothness. Featuring classic mic choices (beta52a on kick, md421’s on toms), this is a brash but natural kit stained deeply with the feeling of the performance.
The Swagger Kit is composed of 66 samples from the Pearl Custom X-treme drum kit played by Arkie Jay (drummer of Orlando’s Alias Punch). With an AKG 414 / Shure Beta 52a combo on a large 32″ kick, SM57’s on snare and an AT4041 pair on overheads, the swagger kit is rock solid and quirky — all you’d expect from a small, but tight rock drum set.
Culture Kit & Swagger Kit features
- 24bit/44.1kHz WAV.
- Both Dry and Dirty (processed) sets of samples for more choices when building a kit.
- Recorded and mastered with professional equipment at Urthwurk Labs in Orlando, FL.
- Easy to learn, proprietary file naming syntax system that includes all important info. about a sample in its file name.
The Culture Kit is available to purchase for $19.99 USD, the Swagger Kit is $16.99 USD.
