Drumstruck contains all five volumes of the percussion loop series and is the only place you still purchase 1 to 3. That means more than 350 loops with a gritty, dark percussive texture, including some mighty fine cinematic breakbeats.
Drumstruck 1 features deep kick loops, dynamic snick/top loops and crunchy breakbeats, reminisicent of Harry Gregson-Williams’ score to the film Phone Booth. Lots of lo-fi tension and dynamics.
Drumstruck 2 is more about louder, noisier, more distorted beats. If you enjoy the big cinematic beats of the likes of Harry Gregson-Williams, Linkin Park, Craig Armstrong or David Holmes, you’ll find something to use in this installment.
Drumstruck 3 has a little bit more crunchy darkness going on, with a focus on synth-based, techy loops and a bunch of saturation and gritty detail.
Drumstruck 4 is deeper and darker, and a much larger library than the others, with seven patches instead of the usual one – including some impacts and sfx. There are analogue beats, digital drums and even some found sounds and custom acoustic recordings.
Drumstruck V provides a useful toolkit of underscore drumloops, as well as some crunchy, dynamic breakbeats.
All five versions offer a wealth of dark, electronic beats and textured, glitchy breaks. There’s plenty of deep, kick-filled loops and crisp top-lines. All processed with my favourite compressors, EQs and distortion plug-ins. No effects, no frills. Just carefully programmed and produced beats, perfect for a wide variety of genres, including cinematic, electronic, rock and pop.
The Drumstruck series is a quick and easy way to introduce supporting loops to your music, dropping them in and out on the fly and combining loops to create new percussive textures.
All the loops sync to your host DAW’s tempo. The bundle is a 3gb download.
