- Publié le 11/05/12 à 20:37 (contenu en anglais)This is a collection of over 1,000 Distorted, Tape Saturated, Bit Crushed, and otherwise affected drum hits. It costs 14.95 from prime loops. You can purchase these in WAV, AIFF, Ableton Live Packs, Battery kits and many more formats. I used the WAV format, with Ableton Live. There were no set up problems, just drag and drop into my sampler and level out the volumes and they were ready to play. All of the sounds perform as advertised, and you get what you pay for with this collection.
The sounds are all high quality and you get exactly what is advertised. 1,000 different Distorted drum hits. Some sounds are great, some are meh. There's nothing terrible, but this is by no means a standout release or a must have collection. It features things like bitcrushed kits, noisy snares and lots and lots of tape saturation. The big problem is finding a use for the sounds in this kit, as they are all pretty much the same. If you need distorted drum sounds and want a wide selection, I'd get this, since it's a great price at 14.95 a pop. Some of the levels were inconsistent, but overall it's good quality. Sounds are stander 24 bits/44.1 Khz sample rate.
Overall I'd give it 2.5/5 stars. It's cool to have around and I do occasionally pull sounds from it, but it's kind of specialized in it's focus. Some of the hits are really cool, but nothing stands out. I would recommend it for someone looking for a little crunchy flavor in their mixes, with cash to spare. It's only 14 bucks. I'm satisfied with the buy, but you do get what you pay for with this release.
