Dominant Drums Full

Well this one has been a long time coming. I went out and did some extensive on location recordings. I altered drum kits, Bolted on sheets of metal to tom toms, ran them through crazy analog effects, and generally beat the living hell out of everything that I could find to make the best sounding hard hitting drums around.

Dominant Drums consists of

  • 25 fully Maschine optimized kits,
  • 6 synths,
  • 5 multi fx groups,
  • 200 patterns
  • 400+ browser tagged samples.   
All just to make you happy. 🙂

Grey Forge “Dark Techno” expansion for Maschine

grey forge product

GREY FORGE delivers dark, brooding techno with expressive control for live performance.

Here we have the latest in a long line of Native Instruments official expansion packs.
This one is designed for a dark techno ambience and I have to say it delivers. The Sounds all have a really nice cohesive flavor to them. One shots ring out with a nice tail and give you a damp dark feeling. Emotive drums that really remind me of just down in the dumps kinda days and the percussion sounds are very easy to mix.

Drum Synth presets 230
MASSIVE presets 40

all for only $49.00

Not bad for such easily usable sounds. Highly recommended.

Dominant Drums Teaser!

This new maschine expansion has been a labor of love. Drums were recorded in a variety of settings using both traditional kits as well as “found sound” kits. The drums were then processed through a variety of outboard gear and optimized for usage in todays top drum sequencing software with a special focus on Native Instruments Maschine.

The Expansion pack is available for both Maschine 1.8 and 2.x format also as individual wav files that are organized by category( kick, snare, etc)
All sounds are individually tagged for easy browsing.
Each kit is mapped out with finger drumming in mind!

Bose Soundlink Mini Review for Mobile Producers

This is a great little portable Speaker to use with your iPad or any bluetooth capable streaming audio device. The Aux input makes it great for connecting up gear as well. The frequency response is pretty usable considering the size of the unit and the battery lasts good and long.
