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.
- Variant: Multi Velocity
- SKU: DD7935RBMS
- Product Type: Drum Samples
- Brand: Drumdrops Samples
The All Samples Pack contains the Multi-velocity pack, Single Hits Pack, Drum Replacement pack and as a bonus we also include 2893 seperate mic samples taken from our no longer supported Kontakt 5 Pack (Please note we do not include the Drumdrops Kontakt Instrument in this pack). You basically get all three packs for the price of two and the bonus seperate mic samples.
Customers can also make their own patches from the two packs of samples included. Included in this pack are the samples from the old Kontakt 5 pack (seperate close and overhead samples) and the stereo mixed samples found in the Multiple Velocity pack and Single Hits Packs. The 467 stereo samples are mixed from the close and overhead mics. We have also included 2893 samples from the old Kontakt 5 pack providing up to 16 velocities of each articulation and 3 round robins. This pack is perfect for those who want to purchase all three packs in one hit or those who like to build their own patches from the samples.
The Multi-Velocity pack provides up to 16 velocity steps of each articulation. The samples are a mix of the close mic and room mics. This pack can be used with any drum machine or sampler that reads WAV files, and we have included a few patches to the most common pieces of drum software. We have also included MIDI Maps for a lot of the popular defaults. This pack also includes over 600 MIDI loops including 179 dub loops. This pack is a great choice for those who want the multiple velocity articulations.
The Single Hits pack is similar to the multi-velocity pack but provides three velocities of each articulation. This pack also includes patches for Battery 3, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Renoise and Reason Refills but if you run any legacy drum machines such as Akai MPC60s this pack may be ideal as we include 16 bit and 24 bit WAV samples.
The Drum Replacement pack is our sample replacement pack. This pack comes with three different patches - Slate Trigger V2, Drumagog V5 & V4 and DrumXchanger. Each patch uses different amounts of samples depending on the capability of the software. If you run any of these pieces of software then this pack is for you.
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. Ask us nicely and we will knock the price of this pack off other packs for this kit if you upgrade.
Whichever pack you choose you can be reassured that is has the Drumdrops quality stamped all over it. If you want Dub Reggae drum sounds you have to start with a Dub Reggae kit.
