The Drum Broker at hiphopdrumsamples.com just announced the Unkemtp Breaks Kit ready for download. These original breaks were recorded thru a SSL Duality board. The sound quality sounds amazing and I’m ready to dive in myself. The breaks look like they were recorder at a professional studio with expensive gear. I can hear the warmth of the sound from the youtube video. The Unkempt Breaks was processed with avalon and universal audio gear and actually I was sitting here in envy wishing I had 5% of gear I saw in the video.
The cool thing about breaks is that you can make a whole track sound alive. Most of the time I chop breaks up and get busy laying down a beat. Breaks from records are my favorite way to get my drums. The Unkempt Breaks kit should help many on the quest for drum nirvana. Those breaks sound awesome and they seem worth the price of admission. Boom Bap enthusiasts will like the sound quality. This can take your production up a notch since the drums are mixed and processed thru quality preamps and compressors. Here is what the Drum Broker has to say.
