“For the longest time, I’ve had the idea to develop a complete sound kit consisting of nothing but string sections. Classical music has played a huge part in my life, and throughout the years, I’ve learned to appreciate the various textures that string instruments deliver, regardless of genre, from cellos, to violins, to epic 30 piece string orchestras. “808s & String Breaks” is a culmination of 2 of my favorite textures: heavy TR-808 kick drums, and royalty-free string compositions. I’ve partnered up exclusively with to bring to you this unique and exciting special edition BLAP KIT. I hope it inspires you to create amazing musical pieces of your own!”  -!llmind

“The new !llmind kit 808s and string breaks is crazy. The 808 are knocking and I love the string loops. Def dope!”
