1970s Rogers Big R Dub Kit - Drum Replacement Pack

Expansion Packs by DrumDrops

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.

What Is the The Drum Replacement Pack?

The Drum Replacement Pack is perfect for users who use Slate Trigger V2, Drumagog or DrumXchanger. The Slate Trigger patch has been created using the close mic and overhead mic samples from the kit. There are samples for the kick drum, snare and toms. You can choose to trigger the close mic, or overhead samples. The samples in this template have up to 16 velocity levels and six round robins.

The Drumagog patch uses the same samples and you can choose the balance between the close mic and overhead mics. This template uses up to 8 velocity levels with four round robins. We have included samples for the Kick, Snare, toms and hi-hat. If your version of Drumagog contains the Auto hi-hat tracking feature then the samples will follow the opening an closing of the hi-hat. The Drumagog 4 patch does not support seperate mics or round robins. There are 16 velocities of each drum sample in this patch.

The DrumXchanger patch contains stereo mixed samples (a combination of the overhead and close mics samples). This template contains eight velocity levels with no round robins. The snare also contains a rimshot sample that has its own adjustable trigger threshold.
