The Break Crate Kit




  • Product Description
      The Break Crate Kit is sampled from the Break Crate sessions with incredible UK Drummer Rich Spaven. Known for his sniper-accurate touch and mastery of metric modulation, Rich has landed gigs with a score of legendary artists including Guru of Gang Starr, Flying Lotus, Alfa Mist, Loyle Corner and Jordan Rakei.

      Rich’s sound has been described as “a nod to the past while keeping an ear toward the future” partly down to his choice of kit elements: crisp snares, round/jazzy toms, punchy kicks, and a selection of dry cymbals and percussion.

      Recorded at London’s Livingston Studios using Rich's signature Yamaha kit, engineering came from Giles Barrett of Lightship 95 Studio, who has worked on a number of projects with Rich, and was the ideal man to go about capturing Rich’s signature sound. Giles kept it old school by using a selection of the vintage mics available at the studio, and chose to run everything through Livingston’s 72 Channel SSL 4000+ G Series, creating a sonic picture that was natural, crisp and full of vibe.

MP3 Samples

The Multi-Velocity pack  provides up to 16 velocity steps of each articulation. This pack can be used in any drum machine or sampler that reads 24 bit WAV files, and we've included patches for Kontakt, Slate Trigger, EXS, Battery and Ableton. 

The Single Hits pack  is similar to the Multi-Sample Pack. It comes with the same patches as the multi-sample pack but only contains three velocities of each articulation. The samples come as 24 bit WAVs. If you run any of these pieces of software and want a more basic sounding kit then this pack will be perfect.

The One Shot Sample pack  is our cheapest pack and a great pack for those who either just need one sample from each articulation (drum machine users) and no patches or for customers who want to check out the sound of this kit before purchasing any of the more expensive packs.
