'The Dirty Drummer' 2 - Return of The MPC Finger Drummer

The Dirty Drummer is back with double the finger drumming fatness!
$29.99 USD

Description

The wait is finally over! The ‘Dirty Drummer’ is back with a vengeance with the next round of fat and filthy MPC finger drumming kits!

This time there’s double the fatness with two complete multisampled drum kits dripping with crunchy, greasy vibes featuring a full spread of essential drum articulations to create your own thumping head-nodding breaks including kicks, snares, open and closed hats, snare rolls, ghost hits, cymbals and percussion, all recorded over multiple dynamic levels to nail that natural acoustic sound.

Each kit has been set up with intuitive finger drumming in mind, painstakingly optimised for each and every MPC model ever made taking full advantage of the different features of each MPC.

The default kit set up for all samplers is for ‘velocity switching’ where each pad plays back one of up to four dynamic levels depending on how hard the pad is hit. For more recent MPCs (MPC Software, MPC Essentials, MPC5000 and JJOSXL) there’s also ‘cycle kit’ versions that play back a different sample timbres each time the pad is hit (‘round robins’) for ultra-realistic playback even with FULL LEVEL turned on.

We've covered all legacy MPCs with dedicated versions for the MPC1000/2500 (suitable for both Akai OS and JJOS), a special 12 pad optimised layout for the MPC500, a 24 bit MPC4000 AKP and memory-optimised programs for the MPC2000/XL/3000/60 (OS 3.1 required for the MPC60).

There’s also an ‘MPC Expansion Pack’ included for MPC Software users who prefer to install their kits in the dedicated Expansion Browser (separate XPM files included for those who prefer the standard file browser), and even dedicated versions for Native Instrument’s Maschine (1/8/2.x) and Battery 4! Full install and set up instructions are included in the detailed User Guide.

Thumping organic drum sounds, unparalleled compatibility and a second-to-none MPC finger drumming experience; we donít know of any other drum kits on the planet that have been made with such attention to detail - pure and utter MPC love!

Product FAQs

How does 'velocity switching' work?

Hitting an acoustic drum at different velocities (levels of hardness) will produce a slightly sound - for example, a soft snare hit has much less attack and high frequencies compared to a hard hit snare (which will tend to have a more cutting and bright attack). So if we record each drum instrument over multiple dynamic levels we can capture a much more realistic and organic 'snapshot' of that original instrument.

'Velocity switching' in an MPC allows us to configure each pad to play back an appropriate dynamic level sample based on how hard we hit the pad, so a soft strike on a 'snare' pad will play back a 'soft' snare sample, a hard pad hit will play back a 'hard' snare sample, and so on. In an MPC we can configure up to 4 dynamic levels per pad (e.g. soft, medium, medium-hard, hard).

What are 'cycle kits' and 'Round Robins'?

Even if we hit an acoustic drum several times times in the exact same spot and with the exact same velocity, each hit will still sound very slightly different. Capturing these subtle differences in acoustic timbre adds even more realism to a multisampled drum kit.

A 'round robin' refers an MPC pad that is configured to play back a different sample each time the pad is hit. These round robins are independent of velocity; instead a sample is selected from a pre-defined 'pool' of samples, either randomly or it can cycle through each one in turn (hence 'cycle kit). Each pad can hold up to 4 round robin samples.

Round robins are currently supported by the MPC Software, MPC Essentials, MPC5000 and JJOSXL.

Is my MPC model supported?

The Dirty Drummer 2 works in all MPCs - and we've made sure of that by building the kit from the ground up in each model!

Each version uses the functionality available specifically in the target MPC model, with the really old MPC models also seeing further optimisations to account for their more limited system memory. All kits feature velocity switching apart from the MPC60 versions (please note that the MPC60 requires OS 3.1).

24 bit samples are provided for all MPCs that support them, otherwise samples are 16 bit.

Is this kit only for live drumming?

No, it can be used for recording or STEP or GRID EDIT drum programming as well. For best results, turn off quantising (TC > Note Value: OFF)!
