Drum Hits 2
Label: Sample Magic
Definitive drum hits for dance music production.
Sample Magic returns with a vast second volume of 1,500+ of our fattest, punchiest and most detailed drum hits to date, packed with expertly synthesised and layered kicks, snares, claps, hats, crashes, percussion one-shots, FX glitches and vintage processed hits to serve every electronic music genre.
Created over a 12-month period, we accumulated thousands of transients from a variety of sources - classic and forgotten drum machines, vinyl records, digital synths, field recordings, live studio sessions - which were then painstakingly layered and processed through our high-end outboard signal path for unparalleled analogue warmth and sheen on each and every hit.
Designed to be the ultimate drum one-shot collection, this essential second addition contains the beat-making tools for all underground electronic music genres, from house and techno to disco and dubstep, chillout to electro and nu-disco to trap.
With unrivalled ease of use at its heart, each hit type folder is divided into as many as seven descriptive sub-folders to make finding the hits you want as straight-forward and intuitive as possible.
And to kick-start your beats, we’ve also bundled 21 genre-based drum kits patches for all major DAWs and samplers, including Battery, Maschine, Kong, NNX-T, EXS24 and Ableton Drum Rack.
All samples are presented in industry-standard 24-bit Wav quality for use in all Wav compatible samplers and DAWs.
All drum sounds in Drum Hits 2 are completely new. They have not appeared in any previous Sample Magic libraries.
