Mike Chav Drum Arsenal Vol. 6 (Warped Drums)

25 Feb

The Drum Broker just released Mike Chav’s Drum Arsenal Vol. 6 (Warped Drums). If you aren’t familiar with  Mike Chav’s work.. Get Familiar! Dude has some dope drum samples.

Excerpt from The Drum Broker Website:

Taught the art of Drum Science by the late J Dilla, Mike Chav is one of the industry’s top engineers & sound designers. He’s Jay Electronica’s engineer/right hand man and a good friend of the late J Dilla. Chav has mixed and mastered records for everyone under the sun including: J Dilla, Eminem, D12, Snoop, The Game, Busta Rhymes, Method Man, Redman, Jay Electronica, Bilal, and Dr. Dre to name a few.

The Drum Arsenal Vol. 6 (Warped Drums)

This collection is called ‘Warped Drums’ because I have taken each kick and snare, copied it and ‘warped’ them until I had several variations of the original drum. I warped each sound with varying methods using different effects settings, time compression/expansion etc.  Playing different variations of the same sample (at the same or different velocities) is a way to achieve a new kind of pocket that can only be made with a drum machine/sampler and sequencer.  

The idea is to mimic the feel a great drummer while using synthetic sounds and a sequencer.

These sounds vary from modern, heavy, dirty, clean, wet, effected etc etc.  They are all sonically awesome.  With this collection your music will sound pro and mixed before an engineer even touches it –if one touches it at all!  This collection has been created with the best of analog, digital and human (ears, brain) equipment.

DJ DN3 “The Campaign EP” Feat Drum Samples From The Drum Broker

17 Nov

Soulful hip-hop music is a way of life for DJ DN3 and the crew. He’s been holding it down as a deejay and producer from Philadelphia to California. He won first place in the Emcee Nemesis “All I Need” remix contest. Blessing us with mixes like The Milkbone Show mx01 and Sunshined The #@$% Out summer mix. DJ DN3 has been putting in work! His latest project features Drum Sample Kits from Big Noise MPC.

“My fellow Americans (and the rest of you earthlings)… Rap cats, (Mr. Miranda, Mouse Powell, and Mega Ran, and myself) recently embarked on a tour to campaign for your ears. On this campaign, I took the opportunity to create some music and ideas that would be formulated to this short EP while I was on the road. I’d like to send a very big shout out to Noiseman at Big Noise for hooking me up! Big Noise MPC (Drum Broker Affiliate) is where I coped the drum kits used to create this project’s soulful and grimy sound. All joints were produced using the very portable Native Instrument’s Maschine Mikro”.

The Music: Each beat that I composed used drum elements of Alkota’s Gems From The Crates, Illmind’s Blap-Kit Volume 1 and M-Phazes’ Dirty 30 Drum Library. I have an old soul sample library that I keep on my traveling external hard drive. This way I can come up with things on the go to complement any other plug-in VST instrument sounds I have on my laptop. Each day we were on tour, I composed a beat whenever I had the downtime to do so. Then out of all of the beats I composed, Mega Ran, Mr. Miranda, and Mouse Powell took a pick on what they wanted to write to. They all recorded the tracks after we got back from tour.

We would like to thank all those who came out to support us and The Campaign Tour, which spanned up and down the west coast. Stay tuned for our next campaign. This a free gift to all so… Enjoy ~ DJ DN³

Vintage Modes: Akai MPC Renaissance & Maschine 1.8

12 Oct

Part of the marketing tactics appeal of the new generation of drum machines from companies like Akai (Numark Corp.) & Native Instruments is the so called “Vintage Mode”. In general, Vintage Mode promises us the analog flavor and characteristics of drum machines past including the Akai MPC 60, E-Mu SP-1200, ASR-10, and more. While not perfect, Vintage Mode offers us a close software emulation of the legendary grit that these vintage drum machines are known for. With the switch of a button, your entire track is turned “Vintage”. As if to instantly inject some life and soul into your music the new generation of drum machines are capitalizing on our lust for analog.

The inherent problem with the so called “Vintage Mode(s)” aside from the technical limitations of emulation (I’m sorry but SP-1200 emulation doesn’t come close to the real thing), is the fact that Vintage Mode can be applied to your ENTIRE track.  Part of the allure to drum machines past (ala E-Mu SP-1200 & Akai MPC60) are their limited tech specs. For instance, the E-Mu SP-1200 has only 10 seconds of sampling time which is spread across 4 banks. Thats 2.5 seconds on sampling time per bank. Yes sir, you can only sample 2.5 second chunks of your favorite wax. Limitations such as memory size, effects, & workflow force(d) beatmakers and producers to work within a limited enviroment. Whether its a strength or crutch, Modern DAW’s, Samplers, & Drum Machines have infinite memory and sample capacity.
