The Sound

The “Deep Dry Soul Kit” is one of three Beat Shed products using a drum sound inspired by the great producer Willie Mitchell.

His approach to drum recording is one much discussed in drummer/engineer circles. Some talk about the punchy kick, the muffled toms, or the mic placement that takes in the whole kit as a single instrument. But then there’s the snare sound. Oh THAT snare sound…

The Kit

The Sound of Vintage Soul Drums

We used our trusty old Yamaha 9000, tuned low and mean, using the 13″ and the 16″ for the toms. 22×16″ kick, with the front head low and the display head almost hanging off.

But let’s face it, the drum sound we got here is all about… That Deep DEAD Snare Sound.

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 Live Drum Racks
  • Ableton Sampler
  • Battery 3 (Mac & Windows)
  • Steinberg HALion
  • Propellerhead Reason
  • CamelAudio Alchemy
