- It's one part vintage drum machine
- One part beautiful mixing desk, compressor and EQ
- One part true analog distortion
We think you'll love making beats with it.
We took a classic LinnDrum and recorded it through a beautiful Custom Series 75 Powered By Neve mixing console. We used the mixing desk's on-board compressor and EQ, adjusting the settings for every sound. We also ran each sound separately into another channel on the desk, overdriving the mic input on that channel to point of analog distortion, creating crunchy versions of each sound.Audio examples:
About the Drum Racks
The source sounds are straight, classic and pure. The overdriven versions go from subtle to scorched. We also added a few wackily-tweaked hits, particularly the Toms, just for good measure.
We then used these 144 samples as the basis for creating 9 Drum Rack presets. Two are focused on the unadorned clean and distorted samples, the other 7 presets are loaded with effect devices.
