Hip Hop Evolution

396 drums inspired by the legendary Pete Rock
$39.99 USD


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.

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!

Product FAQs

Will this work with my sampler?

The sounds and kits in this pack work with all MPC models including the new MPC X and MPC Live, as well as all legacy MPC models (WAV and MPC SND format samples are included). The WAV files are also compatible with all software samplers and DAWs (e.g. Kontakt, Battery, Maschine Logic, Cubase, Reason etc).

Do you use unique sounds in all your packs?

Yes, most definitely. Each time we create a new product, we sit down and create/record all sounds for that pack entirely from scratch, so it is impossible for us to repeat identical sounds across different products in our catalogue.

How old are your sample packs - are the sounds fresh?

We are constantly creating new drum packs with fresh, modern sounds, while at the same time 'phase out' any older products that are past their shelf-life. We don't want to sell our customers 'old' sounds, so you can be confident that any pack you buy will have the most up-to-date hip hop drum sounds available.

What gear do you use to create your sounds?

We have an extensive collection of classic and modern studio equioment including a Neve Mixing Desk, two Urie 1176, Chiswick Reach, Pheonix Compressor, Manely Massive, Various Akai MPCs, Emu SP1200 and an exhaustic array of hardware and digital signal processors (too many to list!). Plus for many packs we utilize local recording studios and musicians to get the signature sound we need.

Do your drum samples work in any other samplers or software?

Yes! Our packs all contain WAV files which will load into all DAWs, software samplers, Maschine, Kontakt, Battery and many hardware samplers.
