Drumstruck 4 is a collection of cinematic percussion loops for Kontakt 5, designed to be used in underscore, action and electronic music.
Within Drumstruck 4, you will find over 170 dark, dynamic, twisted and atmospheric percussive sequences. They have been programmed using my favourite software and hardware synths and then modified with a collection of my most-loved effects plug-ins.
This library is designed to be as simple to use as possible. Load up a patch and start jamming with the various loops. No complicated GUI; just carefully programmed drum grooves, ready to be dropped directly into your tracks.
The vibe is inspired by the beat-driven scoring styles of composers such as Harry Gregson-Williams, John Powell and Henry Jackman; classic scores including Phone Booth, the Bourne Series and Man on a Ledge. Techy, synthetic, energetic, detailed, ambient; a percussive soundtrack at your fingertips.
If you’re looking for great, simple but kinetic, widescreen, electronic drumbeats, with an emphasis on adding subtle and punchy rhythmic content to your music, Drumstruck 4 will be a great new weapon in your studio arsenal.
Drumstruck 4 is divided into seven patches: Betamax Beats, Broken Breaks and Darker Drums; plus the bonus content of Eclectic Effects, Filtered Funk, Sub Slams and Vox Vortex.
Betamax Beats features 28 loops created with digital synths, to give a crunchy, modern vibe. Broken Breaks is 30 dirty and damaged breakbeats. Darker Drums has 90 loops designed with a moody, organic, analogue feel.
Eclectic Effects is a small, bonus collection of 15 fx samples (5 bass drops, 5 reverse transitions and 5 vocal effects) taken from some unreleased sound design projects. Filtered Funk features 15 beats designed for a bespoke project, to create dynamic, filtered, electronic drumbreak fills. Sub Slams is a collection of 25 deep and dark, analogue, cinematic impacts. Vox Vortex is a little, bonus patch of 12 drum loops created using my own voice.
Just 215 samples, but hours of inspiration.
Drumstruck 4 requires the full version of Kontakt 5 to run (at least 220.127.116.111) – it will only work in Kontakt Player in demo mode. The download is 600mb compressed. There is also a WAV Edition that contains WAV versions of all the files as well as the Kontakt version.
