Description

The Raw 70s Kit is the second volume in our 'Drum Evolution' series, featuring a fully multisampled 70s Ludwig Classic drum kit, recorded with an array of vintage microphones straight to 2 inch analogue tape and mapped out perfectly into ready-to-play programs for all MPCs & Maschine.

Oozing with gritty character and tape saturated goodness, these are just about the filthiest, hard hitting multisampled drums we've ever had the pleasure of working with. This demo which was programmed entirely in an MPC:

In total there's 16 unique drum articulations covering all the essentials you’ll need to create incredibly realistic and versatile drum performances, all mapped out across the pads in a finger drumming friendly layout, perfect for programming or for playing live. Check out this demo from finger-drumming whizz Tim Kroker:

Each drum articulation is provided with 12-18 different takes recorded across the entire velocity range, allowing for a very realistic and natural recreation of the original kit, and ultimately giving you everything you need to create your own vintage-style drum performances packed with punch and that elusive retro vibe.

There are 259 drum samples in total, each provided in 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV and legacy MPC sound formats, along with ready-tweaked programs fully compatible with every single MPC model ever, all versions of JJOS, and Maschine 1.8/2.x. No other series of multisampled drum kits can boast this kind of specialist MPC support because no one knows MPCs like we do; 100% compatibility in all MPC models - guaranteed.

The included kits also feature the same layout that we used in the previous release of this series, ‘The 60s Funk Kit’, so if you own both you can easily experiment with different drum kits on the same sequences.

For more information about the instruments used in the kit and a breakdown of the ready-made kit layouts included, check out the detailed User Guide.

The Raw 70s Kit - without doubt one of the most distinctive, hard hitting multisampled drum kits you'll ever get your hands on. Available exclusively from MPC-Samples.com.

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 PGM 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. In Maschine, double click the MGRP file from the Maschine browser or add it to your User Library (full instructions are included).

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

So do I need a lot of free memory to run this kit in an 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 single MPC model, including all versions of JJOS, and we've also included Maschine Groups that work in Maschine version 1.8 and 2.x.

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 (including the iMPC Pro iPad application).

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.
