Creating drum samples from scratch can be very time consuming and it's surely not for everyone but luckily for me it turned out that designing sounds, finding new effect chains and just experimenting with sound is something that I dig nearly as much as producing music. The idea of this kit was born in early 2015 when I decided to create some really dope drum samples for myself. I wanted to have something good enough so I don’t have to shift thru tons of drums, mess with advanced layering or have to put effects on my samples right after loading them into sampler just to make it sound good every time I want to lay down some drums. To be honest, there are a lot of drum samples which sound excellent right out of the box, but most of them are focused more on modern sound which is great (and I'm often in need of those kind of sounds) but for me, there's nothing better than good quality, juicy, old school sounding drums with a (little) modern twist. And that's how I began creating my own library of hip hop drums.
So here it is, Influential Kit - it's a mixture of samples which I've created for myself and samples created strictly for this library - it's a quite big collection (500 drum samples) of dark, warm and noisy / dirty samples aimed for hip-hop producers. It's all original material (whole source material for this pack was recorded or synthesized by me), you won't find here any reused samples from other kits available on the internet.
I think it's a dope product and I hope that you'll think the same, but it's enough with the words - feel free to listen to some demos that I've created for this drum kit and don't forget to check out the free version Influential Kit LITE - it contains 50 samples from the full version.
This product contains only drum one shots, all melodic instruments used in this demo are for demo purposes only.
