Without doubt one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time, Pete Rock helped define East Coast Hip Hop with his gritty sampled drums and jazz-fuelled beats. 'Hip Hop Evolution' is our tribute to Pete Rock's drum sound, with 396 kicks, snares, hats, percussion, drum kits and beat sequences inspired by Pete Rock's legendary style.
Inside, you'll first find an extensive library of 336 warm, crunchy drum sounds which were inspired by the groundbreaking beats from classic albums such as Petestrumentals and Soul Survivor.
In addition to the main drum library, we've created 20 MPC beat sequences in a Pete Rock style; each beat is a 2-bar MPC sequence file with 3 separate tracks (kick, hat & snare), allowing full control over all sequence parameters. To compliment these sequences, we've created 20 ready-made 'kick-hat-snare' kits using an additional 60 drum samples; all the kits are laid out identically which means you can easily and quickly mix and match the sequences and kits to get hundreds of different beat combinations - plus of course you can make up your own kits using any other drum sounds, giving you infinite possibilities (full instructions on how to build the kits are included in the download).
The demo for this product features 2 beat sequences, 2 free kits and an additional selection of drum sounds from the pack - just transfer to your MPC, load up and immediately start exploring the different beats and sounds you can make.
Hip Hop Evolution is an essential beat making resource for all producers who admire Pete Rock's classic, soulful beats.
Now updated to be fully compatible with all MPCs, including the MPC Renaissance and any JJOS!
