Description

Save 25% on both volumes in the series!

The Dirty Drummer series features some of the fattest & filthiest multisampled drum kits ever made, optimised specifically for all MPC models and fully configured for intuitive finger drumming. This bundle contains all three kits from both volumes, each one featuring 16 drum articulations recorded over multiple dynamic levels for maximum realism (196 multisampled drum hits in total).

The default programs utilise velocity switching to produce a natural timbre variation with FULL LEVEL 'off', while the MPC Software, MPC5000 and JJOSXL versions also feature round robins ('cycle kits') for maximum realism, even with FULL LEVEL 'on'!

Inside you'll find program files for all MPC models, all built from the ground up to ensure 100% compatibility - just load up and start creating your own realistc breaks!

"Iím a sucker for a great sounding acoustic kit, especially when itís thick and punchy. This kit was made to give MPC users a realistic finger drumming kit, but even though Iím not a finger drummer, I think this is a very dope kit. Itís punchy, organic, and has a nice meaty texture. This kit is perfect for anything from Hip Hop to Boom Bap, Neo Soul, RnB, Downtempo, Chillout, or anything that needs a nice thick drum kit."

"I used The Dirty Drummer kit at both my gigs this past weekend and it went absolutely perfect. Could not be happier with the tone of the kit!

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)!
