Revival Drum Sample Library: Volume 2
At the foundation of the modern song is the one-two punch of a kick and a snare, laying a fundamental beat upon which a symphony of melodies can be layered. In pursuit of that foundation, Jose Medeles (1939 Ensemble, The Breeders) presents a selection of vintage bass drum sounds, the second offering in his curated Sample Library of unique and valuable tones for studio or stage.
Once again the library was recorded at Vancouver’s Bocce Recording, partnering with producer Mark Powers and engineer John Askew, this package offers the sounds of 37 vintage and famed bass drums in a collection totaling 2220 samples. Perfect as a companion to the snare samples of Volume One, this collection is sure to bring another layer of authentic, organic rhythm to lock down your next groove.
Thoughts from the pros:
"Wow, what a collection of sounds...I really like what you’ve done, particularly the ability to isolate the specific top and bottom mics, along with the overheads and stereo rooms. To me, this feels like not only a wonderful set of sounds, but a unique catalogue of the history of vintage drums. I really like how clean and ‘real’ they sound."
– Joe Clegg (Drummer, Musical Director)
"I'm blown away by how comprehensive the library is...different mic positions, blended, and the amount of cool vintage sounds in there is crazy. Think it will be super useful for programming I do to get some organic layers into super modern sounds."
– Blair Sinta (Drummer, Session Musician)
"The education and value in the Revival Drum Sample Library sets a new standard for drum sample packs. The pure and unprocessed sounds are perfect for drum replacement during mixing and inspiring for production."
– Gus Berry (Producer, Mixer, Engineer)
"Easily the most complete and thoughtful collection I've heard. The recordings are all immaculate - very honest and open - and there are enough options to fit them into any mix presentation. Besides being an incredible resource for enhancing (or starting) a production, it's an amazing reference library for understanding the differences between very classic and sought-after instruments."
– Beau Sorenson (Producer, Engineer)
"What I love about these samples is that they are not overly processed or hyped. They fit right in my mix with my processing very easily and naturally."
– Thom Flowers (Producer, Composer)
