"The microphones are sucking up so much ace skin sound on these discs. Mister Pel is a master of the fat and the skinny and can match a sound to a sound like Dulux matches the paint."Graham Coxon | Musician
Drumdrops has over 400 drum tracks for you to preview and purchase in multiple formats. Each drum track can be previewed below as a low quality MP3. You can then click on the 'More Info' button to find out how the track was recorded and what formats it is available to purchase in.
All of the drum tracks can be purchased as unmixed live drum multi-tracks. These feature full length takes with all the separate drum mics recorded as 24 bit 44.1 WAVs and come with the Pro Tools session file, an OMF file to import into other DAW and a beat tempo map for syncing up external drum machines. The multi-tracks are perfect for people who want to experiment with setting up their own drum mix and have total control over the sound.
A large selection of the drum tracks are available to purchase as drum stem packs which contain the main stereo mix and sections of the drums mixed down. These packs are better for those who don't want to spend time setting up the mix. We have done the hard work for you, mixing them in commercial studios on vintage gear.
Finally a smaller selection of the drum tracks can be purchased as drum loops. Each mixed drum track has been cut down to about seven 2-4 bar loops and provided in the different drum components - full mix, full kit, kick and snare. The drum loops have been provided as WAVs, Apple Loops and Rex2 files meaning they will import into any sampler or DAW.
