The definitive drum pack

A labour of love spanning 2 years, Drum Tools 02 delivers over 4,000 ground-breaking electronic drum samples and percussive hits, each carefully crafted by hand from the ground-up using a huge array of drum machines, analogue synths, foley recordings and acoustic sound sources; processed and layered on a sound-by-sound basis using a boutique collection of high-end outboard gear…

Pushing the boundaries of creative sound design, Drum Tools 02 delivers production ready drums for modern electronic music production; an essential toolkit for Techno, EDM, Rap, House, Trap, Pop and everything in-between!

For added character, warmth and punch, selected sounds have been re-recorded to both ½ inch analogue tape via an Ampex ATR-102 analogue tape machine, and 12” Vinyl via a classic Neumann VMS 70 vinyl mastering lathe.

Boasting custom built Ableton Live racks, NI Maschine presets, 79 drum kits along with 24-bit WAV file formats, Drum Tools 02 integrates with any DAW…
