Gretsch 1960s Round Badge Soul Kit - Single Hits Pack

Sample Packs by DrumDrops

The Gretsch 1960s Round Badge Kits are legendary kits. Currently they are one of the most sought after kits from that era. We recorded this kit to capture a certain sound, the sound of the late 60s and early 70s that came out of the Royal Studios in Memphis. Home to legendary producer and founder of Hi Records, Willie Mitchell. This studio was responsible for recording hit after hit from famous Soul Artists such as Al Green and Ann Peebles. We have studied and recreated the drum sound.

Unlike the one microphone, large open room drum sounds coming out of Motown and Stax in the 60’s/early 70’s, Willie Mitchell preferred a small dry room, often using three or four microphones on the drum kit. To capture the same sound we used the perfectly suited dry live room at Miloco’s The Square. The concept behind the mic positioning is unique to this release. We used four mic’s, each placed in carefully selected positions around the kit, so each mic captures the drum kit as a whole, meaning you can use any one mic as your drum sound, or you can blend any or all of the mic’s to create your ideal sound. 

The drum kit was produced and recorded by South London drummer Timmy Rickard who has studied the grooves and sound of this great era. The kit is a classic sounding late 60s kit with wallets placed on the tuned down snares,  a tea towel was used on the floor tom and we have recorded the ride with and without a chain. Also included are four classic vintage snares and the kit is finally topped off with some percussion - congos, a tambourine and shaker.

What Is the The Single Hits Pack?

The Single Hits Pack is our starter sample pack for this kit and contains 180 samples. It comes with the same software patches as the Multi-Velocity pack but includes only three velocities of each articulation and is ideal for working with drum machines such as the Akai MPC60 or software such as idrum. All the samples have been mixed from a combination of the five microphones based around the kit.

We have included patches for working in the latest versions of Battery, Kontakt, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One Soundsets, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Reason Refills and Renoise but the samples can be loaded into any DAW, sampler or drum machine that reads WAV files. We have included both 24 bit WAVs and 16 bit WAVs so that older devices such as the old MPC's can load them up. We have also included guide MIDI maps for Addictive Drums, BFD, iMap, Superior Drummer, V-Drums, Slate Digital SSD4, General MIDI and Drumit Five.
