Unless your Bradley Wiggins not many people can say they ride to work on their work, so the idea of mounting an acoustic Drum Kit on bicycle isn’t a thought that enters most peoples head, however Australian Born David came up with the idea whilst fixing a puncture in London’s Green Park, staring at the upturned frame the thought “my drums could fit on there” hit him and Puncture Kit was born.
All manner of tricks and experiments were used including old t-shirts on drums and cymbals to add artificial damping, old cracked cymbals on top of snare drums for trashy backbeats, kick drums stuffed with toys or played with warped skins…anything to replicate and mimic unique electronic drum sounds that could then be played with the real swing of a live drummer.
In Detail expect to find 1.7Gb of 24Bit 44.1 Quality Loops including 196 Puncture Kit Loops, 160 Studio Kit Loops at BPMs of 90 to 175 and 751 Multi Velocity Drum One Shots, 12 Puncture Kit fills, 42 Studio Kit fills, 356 Rex2 Files and 4 Soft Sampler Instruments for Kontakt, Halion, Exs24, Nnxt and Sfz formats.
Beats Cycling is a diverse set of royalty free samples that draw inspiration from the classic breakbeats featured on many great tracks and includes infectious modern beats made versatile with ambient and close mic-ed variations of both loops and shots.
