The sound of a space is just as important as the drums themselves, but even the best reverbs fail to capture the true sense of being in the room. Hit the drums hard and you’ll feel the explosive life a room creates as it thunders through the air. Tap them gently and the room will softly speak, creating a beautiful atmosphere.
This isn’t just another drum sample library - this is SPACES.
The Muted Room
The Muted Room is all about opposites. Unlike the rest of this series, where I set out to find the biggest spaces possible, these drums were sampled in a tight, dry, muted space. You might be fooled into thinking that these samples just use close mics, but they’re mixed with a stereo pair of overhead mics to ensure that the drums sound punchy, tight and yet still have an amazing stereo width.
Using vintage drums and recording techniques from the 60’s these sounds are perfect to take your mix, production or live stream off the beaten path and into something fresh and new.
Since many of us are using the Steven Slate Trigger plugin for your samples, I have included pre-mapped TCI files. Simple drag and drop and you’ll have the different velocity layers and round robins pre-mapped. It couldn’t be easier to audition sounds and create your perfect drum mix!
