Hip Hop Samples that Challenge the Status Quo
We’re calling out all hip hop industry leaders, the game changers, the ones who look to innovate, the ones who tired of the same old boring and recycled sounds in every hip hop drum kit.
Hip Hop Drums Live stays true to the genre of hip hop but at the same time gives you high quality drum sounds you’ve never heard before.
We invite you to hear why HHDL is different from all other hip hop drum kits and explore the unlimited creative possibilities!
The Recording Process
The HHDL sample pack was recorded at Grand Lodge No. 24, located in Quebec Canada.
Situated on a quite street is a 130 year old “red bricked” church that was converted into a studio back in 2005 when Grammy Award winning band Arcade Fire first purchased it.
Complete with massive vaulted ceilings, a vintage Calrec Mixing desk and a whole suite of analog recording gear, Grand Lodge Studio’s open/airy sound was captured perfectly and can be heard in the recordings of Hip Hip Drums Live.
You’ll notice right away that the open space truly adds a unique and 3 dimensional quality to each sample.
Multiple Setups and Kits
In total, we recorded two different drum kits and a third kit that contained miscellaneous drum pieces. We set up the drums in two different location of the live room, with and without gobos, to get the maximum amount of variation into the recordings.
The result is some truly magnificent colors and textures that will add some character and depth to your hip hop beats.
We went out of our way to ensure that a variety of high quality Class A vintage and modern gear was used. From a vintage recording console, to modern EQ’s and compressors, tube microphones and even vintage ribbon mics.
The finished product resulted in an eclectic variation of tones and colors unlike anything you’ve heard before.
Different is good!
