496 hip hop drum samples inspired by the drums of J Dilla
$39.99 USD


J Dilla was one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time , a brilliant mind who inspired a generation of beat junkies. ‘Deconstructed Rhythm’ is our tribute to the drum sound of Dilla, featuring 496 brand new and original drum samples inspired by his production style and split over an extensive drum library and 20 ready-made MPC drum kits.

Section one contains a drum library of 336 original kicks, snares, hats and percussion samples, separated into folders and laid out into MPC program files. Heavily influenced by the drum production style on albums such as Ruff Draft, Donuts, Champion Sound and The Shining, we’ve created a unique collection of hip hop drum sounds which combine both modern and classic production techniques utilising extensive layering, creative EQ, and dynamic processing. To complete the sound, we cut everything to vinyl  and re-sampled, giving a warm vintage crunch to all samples.

The Dilla influence continues into the second part of the pack, with a further 160 unique drum samples organised into 20 drum kits. Each kit contains 8 perfectly matched drum and percussion sounds: kick, snare, closed hat, open hat, clap, shaker/cabasa, crash cymbal and a ride cymbal - all sounds are laid out identically over the bottom two rows of MPC pads (using a modified GM assignment), with panning, volume levels and velocity sensitive program parameters set up for you, giving you true ‘performance’ drum kits. 

'Deconstructed Rhythm' is a real labour of love - a unique and fresh drum collection that tips its hat respectfully to one of hip hop’s greatest musical alchemists.

Will this work with my sampler?

The sounds in this pack are provided in both WAV and MPC SND format, making it compatible with all MPC models, all versions of JJOS, NI Maschine, and all software samplers and DAWs (e.g. Kontakt, Battery, Logic, Cubase, Reason etc).

Any included PGM files will auto-load your sounds across the pads in all MPCs as well as NI Maschine.

Do you use unique sounds in all your packs?

Yes, most definitely. Each time we create a new product, we sit down and create/record all sounds for that pack entirely from scratch, so it is impossible for us to repeat identical sounds across different products in our catalogue.

What gear do you use to create your sounds?

We have an extensive collection of classic and modern studio equioment including a Neve Mixing Desk, two Urie 1176, Chiswick Reach, Pheonix Compressor, Manely Massive, Various Akai MPCs, Emu SP1200 and an exhaustic array of hardware and digital signal processors (too many to list!). Plus for many packs we utilize local recording studios and musicians to get the signature sound we need.

Do your drum samples work in any other samplers or software?

Our drum samples are available in WAV format, so the samples themselves will load into any sampler or software that reads standard 16bit WAV files. Just select 'MPC1000' format when purchasing.
