    Hi guys, I work for a new sample site

    We have a drum and bass sample pack with 25 kicks and 25 snares, hope you guys like what you hear!

    Here's the demo for the dnb pack.

    Can you shed some light on your processing of the dnb kick and snare samples? They sound great!

    Kicks are mostly lower samples pitched into dnb ranges, tightened up with eq to account for the pitching (often oxford EQ) with sub rolled out. The trick really was doing this over hundreds of kicks with varying qualities, bouncing out with numbers for filenames so that blind tests could be done.
    They were whittled down to the top 25, which then were looked at individually again with fresh ears, any adjustments were made accordingly. Tested on a few monitors and a pair of DT880s too.
    Snares were a little less formulaic, we have a pretty big library collection so there was a lot of careful layering and EQing, transient shaping (often to tame when using plenty of layers). The main thing was using good source samples. Again, hundreds of these fought to the death for a place in the pack.
    Glad you like them!

    Those hits sound quite nice! Any chance for a potential discounted group-buy for the forum members?

    I had to try. :)

    Cheers!

    A group buy sounds good to us! If 10 of you guys are interested, we'll let the complete bundle go for 50% off (that's £20 for all 4 packs).
    For the first 10 to PM me, tell me that you're in and give me your email address.

    Good luck guys!

    Fantastic, could you PM me your email address? It's just so that I can mail you paypal instructions and send you the goods when we get 10 buyers.

    2 others in on the group buy so far.

    Not off hand sorry, I can probably sort you a bounce after the weekend when I'm back in the studio. The drum hits in the demos were literally dragged and dropped onto a bounce with no main hits.
