$29.99 USD


Voted as one of the "Best Drum Kits of the Year" by, 'The 60s Funk Kit' is a multisampled vintage drum kit recorded direct to analogue tape that perfectly captures the unique sound and vibe of the great funk records from the 60's and early 70's, laid out in ready-made drum kits for all MPC models, including the MPC X, MPC Live, JJOS and Maschine!

Inspired by the kits used by legendary drummers such as Clyde Stubblefield, Jabo Starks and Zigaboo Modeliste and built around a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge kick drum and a Ludwig Black Beauty snare, it's packed with a traditional gritty tone full of the warmth and character you’d expect to hear from classic vintage drum recordings.

Check out the demo - all drums and percussion came from this kit and were entirely sequenced in an MPC using the included MPC finger-drumming kits:

Every instrument in the kit has been recorded by drummer Richard Preston (Tombongo) using 12 unique takes from soft through to hard velocites, giving you a very realistic sounding kit that's perfect for creating your own unique drum performances in an MPC or Maschine. In total there are 192 unique drum and percussion samples covering 16 unique instrument articulations including kick, snare, rim shot, snare drag (a short snare roll), pandero snare (a snare and tambourine skin-to-skin), hi hat (including open and edge), ride (including bell), crash, hi and low toms, claps, tambourine and shaker. Check out the review from Saintjoe from Maschinepacks/

All samples are provided in three formats; 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV and legacy MPC SND format, and we’ve also included a number of ready-made MPC kit programs and Maschine groups, carefully tweaked and optimised for all MPC models (including JJOS) and Maschine 1.8/2.x that load up intuitively laid out finger-drumming kits which take full advantage of the different features available in each sampler, including velocity switching (all samplers), round robins (MPC X, MPC Live, Software, MPC5000, JJOSXL), a low memory version for older MPCs, and a 12 pad version for MPC500 users.

Fully Compatible With All MPCs, all JJOS and Maschine

Simply transfer the sounds to your MPC or Maschine, load up a compatible kit program and instantly start recording your own drum performances into your sequencer. Download the detailed User Guide to find out more about each different kit and how to use them in your own songs:

"How does it sound? In a word… Great! I fell in love instantly with the warm sound of the drums in The 60s Funk Kit. The thing that hit me most was the density of some of the kicks and the realistic spring ring in some of the snares.Bottom line is that this is, if you are looking for a nice live drumming experience that allows you to program beats with a finger drumming aesthetic, The 60s Funk Kit is the kit to have. Even beyond that fact there is so much flexibility in this kit and the manual will help you get the most out of it. This is definitely one to have in your library of kits.  I think the next wave in dope drum kits is multi-sampled kits."

"I love these multi-sampled packs, the last one (Dirty Drummer) was great and I brought this new one instantly. The quality of the kits and the way the whole thing is put together is very good, great for any type of music really!"

"Really nice work Tutor!! Best Live Drum pack out there!! Keep it up man!!"
DJ DanTuf Soundcloud

"Must say this kit and some of the others I have heard MPC Tutor sell are exceptionally good. I don't make hip hop so not much call for these type of sounds but I can tell a superb sound when I hear it.I have all sorts of super duper multisampled kits that came with various software I purchased but I find them all bland and characterless. The stuff here is way better because they ooze large amounts of inspirational character."

"Tutor has totally changed the game !! I use this so often now, it feels like my own drum kit, I love pushing the sounds in this pack to really bring that tape out, stunning job on this pack. No one else is touching your packs at the moment."

Product FAQs

What is a multisampled drum kit?
Rather than use just one sample for each instrument in a kit, a multisampled drum kit contains multiple recordings of each instrument, all hit with a range of velocities. The sounds are then assigned to MPC drum programs to create a very realistic sounding finger drumming kit that can be used for live performing or for sequencing in your MPC or DAW.
Have you applied compression, effects and EQ to this kit?

Absolutely not! There's millions of over-compressed and over-EQ'd kits out there already, but there's not many that focus on capturing the natural and authentic sound of a vintage drum kit. The only compression you'll find here is the natural compression created by recording to analogue tape.

By not applying additional processing, we've kept this kit as versatile as possible, leaving you to add compression, EQ and effects to suit the song you are working on.

So how do I use this kit?

In the MPC, just select a program file compatible with your MPC model, load it up into your MPC, assign to a sequencer track and start playing, just like any other MPC program. Full installation and usage instructions for each are included with the product.

We've already configured everything for you, but you can also tweak the program parameters, effects and layout to your own unique taste.

So do I need a lot of free memory to run this kit in a legacy MPC?

It's definitely best used on MPCs with at least 32MB of memory available, especially if you want to use the full velocity switched kit. However, we have included a low memory kit (under 6MB), but this only uses a single sample per pad.

Which samplers is this kit for?

The kit programs we provide will work in every MPC from the MPC X/MPC Live through to the MPC2000/XL, including all versions of JJOS. (MPC60/3000 not supported).

Additionally, as the sounds themselves are provided in standard WAV format (16 bit and 24 bit) you can load up the sounds into any modern software or hardware sampler and DAW.

How do I load this into the iMPC Pro iPad app?

The iMPC Pro (iPhone/iPad app) can currently only import WAV files (it doesn't support importing MPC program files), so you will need to transfer the WAV files via iTunes and then manually assign the WAV files to your pads. Akai has full instructions here.
