The Krautrock Kit



Multi-Velocity Pack

  • Product Description
      The Krautrock Kit is a hybrid kit recorded by producer Ben Hillier (Depeche Mode, Blur, Nadine Shaw). Ben used his collection of vintage German mics all running into a Studer desk for a truly authentic sound. The kit has lots of dampening and screens to isolate the drums in that classic Krautrock style.

MP3 Samples


The Multi-Sample 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. It also includes loads of MIDI loops in various genres. 


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.
