The Sound

“Modern Funk Kit” was recorded in the same session as “12/8 Shuffle Grooves“. For that funky swinging feel, we selected a detuned kick drum sound, toms that were warm and resonant, and a fairly high-pitched snappy snare drum.

The Kit

12/8 Shuffle Grooves” was recorded using our DW Collectors series kit and Zildjian cymbals:

  • 22×18″ Kick, 14×5” Snare drum, 10/12/14” Toms
  • 14” A Custom Fast Crash, 18” A Custom Fast Crash, 22” K Dark Ride, 14” Oriental China Trash, 8” A Custom Splash

The Hits

To get the widest range of funk drum samples, we went for 5 velocities on each voice/articulation, more than we’ve previously recorded for any sample pack.

Another first with this kit is that we’ve recorded samples of the kick with the beater buried in the head AND the beater coming off the front head.
The 12/8 groove has so much feel in the kick drum that we wanted to present these 2 options of kick sound:
Kick (beater in) – tight, punchy, fast decay
Kick (beater out) – full, deep, resonant

The Patches

We have created sampler patches that “map” the voices and velocities to different keyboard note events.

sample mapping

Simply load the correct format into your software sampler, and you can play beats using your keyboard, or programme beats in your sequencer.

We created sampler patches in the following formats:

  • EXS24 (Logic/Garageband)
  • Kontakt

  • Ableton Sampler
  • Battery 3 (Mac & Windows)
  • Steinberg HALion
