The 1970s Rogers Big R Dub Kit is the kit that we used to record Drumdrops in Dub Volume 3 and Drumdrops in Ska. This is the ultimate sounding dub kit. It is available to purchase in three different packs and is a must for anyone wanting an authentic dub drum sound. The kit was sampled in The Ironworks, a vintage tracking studio in Brighton, UK that has been used by Horseman, Little Roy, Prince Fatty amongst others. The acoustics of the live room has been masterminded by the ex-Olympic and Radio Caroline tech Mike Craig and it provides a great controlled sound for a Dub kit.
The drum kit was played by legendary and Drumdrops resident reggae drummer Horseman. Drumdrops head honcho Mike Pelanconi was on the recording duties making sure we came up with the best sounding dub kit possible. If you are looking for dub kit samples then this is the best place to start.
The Kontakt 5 Pack comes with the Drumdrops Kontakt Instrument for exclusive use in Native Instruments Kontakt version 5. The interface comes with it's own mixer section giving you control over the individual drum tracks and convolution reverbs that we have included. Each channel has an EQ and Transient Master. You can change the velocity curves of the drums and there is a randomisation feature to add subtle changes to make the drums even more realistic.The Kontakt pack comes with 50 separate articulations, 16 velocity steps and includes 6 round robins totalling 5352 drum samples. We have also focused on the compatiability with Roland V-Drums and the Yamaha DTX900 making sure it plays nicely with these setups.
