Vintage Drum Samples has announced the release of its new sample library Bitter Sweet Drums, featuring a Ludwig drum kit designed to bring the sound of the drums in the Verve’s legendary Bitter Sweet Symphony.

Brit-pop in the 90s certainly produced some great anthems. A hymn that people are still very enthusiastic about is certainly the song Bitter Sweet Symphony. This song took our hearts by storm and if we still listen to it today it creates great emotions.

In addition to the strings, the drum sound of this song is striking and incomparable. And this is our 90s Brit-pop Drum-kit! No digital harshness, no (slatish) clinically clean sound. It was our duty to make a drum kit that was pretty close to the original 90s sound.

Priced $12 USD, the sample library includes 3 kits for Kontakt 5.4.3 or higher (full version). Wav files are included for use in other samplers/DAWs.

Also available is Detroit Drums, a drum kit library that aims to bring the ’70s Detroit drum sound.

Inspired by the Nostalgia of the Analogue Days, we tried very hard with our complex procedure to emulate the entire chain using analog tape and sampling back from real vinyl record.

These drums are a real workhorse for all Retro Songs, Old-school Hip Hop, Modern Vintage Style or Motown stuff.

Detroit Drums for Kontakt (Wav also included) is available for purchase for $10 USD at Vintage Drum Samples.
