Memphis Soul Kit - The Multi Sample Pack

Sample Packs by DrumDrops

The Memphis Soul Kit was recorded using a legendary Gretsch 1960s Round Badge Kit. 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 Multi Sample Pack?

The Multi Sample Pack offers up to 16 velocity levels of each articulation and is designed for customers who use one of the software packages that we include patches for. We also included 3 round robin samples which can be utilised but some of the included patches - EXS24, Kontakt, Battery & SFZ. This pack comes with 2143 mono samples. All the mono samples have been mixed from a combination of the five microphones around the kit. This pack can be loaded into any DAW, sampler or drum machine that can read 24 bit WAVs. We also have included 16 bit versions of the samples.

The pack includes patches so that the samples will automatically load into the latest versions of Battery, Kontakt, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One Soundsets, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Reason Refill packs, Renoise. SFZ and the free TX16Wx sampler. We have also included over 1400 MIDI loops covering a variety of genres that map to the default MIDI map. Finally, there are multiple guide MIDI maps for Addictive Drums, BFD, iMap, Superior Drummer, Slate Digital SSD4, V-Drums and Drumit Five. Please note these MIDI Maps do not control the data for V-Kits. This is a feature found only in the Kontakt 5 pack or BFD packs.
