you don't only have to sample vinyl, and samples don't only need to be used in boom bap.
Thanks! Gonna scope and report back

Also the last pack from M-phazes, I think its called the Vault Library. Trust me...in the hip hop realm you will not come across any better kits than these at the moment...and I've done endless research, diggin' and shopping for quite sometime now. Ohh!!! also Beat Butcha's stuff is really dope, especially if your into the East Coast, Boom-Bap type sound. Preview them, and decide what works for you.
Salute, Gonna have to agree with ya there. Ski Beatz karate school isn't bad either, same with the minty drums too they're nice as well!!

I hate to be a dick but I wasn't a fan either, just not enough punch...like at all...the sp-1200 weren't bad but they weren't good either. That said their crashes and percussion are okay

Hey guys, a lot of people have been emailing me about the 'Magic Theatre' drum packs, as mentioned in this thread.

Unfortunately my site was hacked and the eCommerce section stopped working, so the site is no longer up.

I will be launching a new site early next month (Jan 2014) though,
with all new packs.
Here's a sample of whats to come.

Just wanted to chime in on our newest drum kit package.
The Instant Classic Hip Hop drum kit set price dropped from $40 to $25 for a limited time. I feel it is the absolute best package anywhere for the money.

Here is a review on the set from BBtech Report.

That Minty Drums Brown Bag was pretty nuts. 680 sub kicks with the add on, on top of foley, a ton of synth kicks and other kicks and snares. The whole size of the kit with that add on they put on it was like 1.25 gb. For 14 bucks it was a steal imo

I gotta say...after really digging in to the Minty Drums Brown Bag...these dudes are on top of their drum game. I don't want to be a stan but the 808's were worth the $14 alone. Has anybody ever heard the D.R Collection from Minty? It's $150 but it's 80 gb of nothing but breaks...like 80 gb is wayyy excessive. But I'm seriously thinking bout coppin it anyway

What's the point of limited edition samples? That's just begging for things to be pirated.

I agree...

thing is, it's not limited edition.. at least from what I can tell because Minty Breaks site still has it up even though The Drum Broker took it down after 100 downloads.

I listened to the demo, and I don't hear anything special. However I have never really found a "drum kit package" useful so far. Still chopping breaks at this point. I guess different tastes.

What is special about these one shottaz? Y'all extra hype. Convince me. Size is a minus not a plus in my book. Sifting thru a ton of mediocre sounds is not my thing.

If you heard the demo and are not convinced then what will convince you?

What's special about them? They are good.

I considered the possibility that the demo only represented a handfull of the sounds, and not the broadersprectrum. That being said, it stands to reason that a user with knowledge of this collection could possibly shed some additional light on the benefits / positives / gems / etc within this collection. It is pretty simple actually. I am surprised anyone would have trouble grasping this concept. Howver, if the issue is that you can not articulate why / how the drums rise above the average pack, then that is a different animal.

For reference, some time ago my workload was continuing to increase, due to some other media projects, and whileI had drums... I felt I didnt have time to chop etc for these projects, with timelines and such. So one day I bought almost every drum kit on that broker website. I think one of the only ones I didn't get ws some sort of Dilla based one. Some of those drum packs arenlt even on the site anymore. With all the chatter, from dudes like yourself, I figured I would come up by just buying most of what they had to offer. Not the case. Maybe its my taste, but I don't use any of them. The only ones that I thought were cool were Blap 1 and Dirty 30 but they would make me sound basically exactly like those two dudes. Which wasnt what I was going for... This was before Mindy stuff was offered.

So now I am compelled to ask more questions, when people get extra happy go lucky about some shiny new package o drums. I dropped a decent amount of bread on all those packs, and would gladly sell / trade them if I could. Perhaps they are the dopest drums ever for most other cats, and just not for me.

Hey well cool...here is one benefit, if you use these drums, you don't have to worry about sounding like anybody because last I checked there was no Minty Tha Beatmaker.

They are just dope drums...they have been processed well and are just ready to go out the box. It's a good mixture of one hits that fit in.well to any kind of.production. And, the price point is right.

You can buy them if you like....or...if you feel they are too mediocre for you to waste your precious time flipping through, you can also take 5-10 minutes of your life that you will never get back typing about these drums you aren't going to buy. That works too. Trolololool

You had me until that blurb at the end. Spoken like a person who truly has nothing better to do than sift through ish. I already dig for records. Why buy a drum pack if you still have to dig for good sounds? I can do that with vinyl.

I might cop. If I do, hopefully I don't end up feeling like I would have been better off copping some tofu fried rice. If it doesn't live up to your hype, I am going to hold you personally responsible.

Check out their Minty drums 2 and Minty drums and percussion. Really good too imo

Haha its all good to act like a Stan with that by the way I totally was too. I hit them up on twitter and **** afterward haha Was acting like a giddy kid after I got those sub kicks after lol

Don't really see why people are going the OMG VINYL IS SUPERIOR BLA BLA route for this conversation....you do realize this is a "freshest DRUM KIT PACKAGES" thread right?

it's 2014, I'll always respect people's opinions to directly sample vinyl for drums thats word. In this day and age though drum kits are getting nasty and it doesn't take a genius to find the good ones either via googling etc. So you can spend like 20 bucks on a package that you know will be good [like pure protein vol 1 or 2]. Time is money and searching vinyl for drum hits, ripping it, sampling it etc takes a lot of time and effort for maybe like a few kicks/snares versus getting an entire dope drum kit of snares and kicks etc in 1 minute of googling or dropping 20 bucks on something.

On a side note anyone cop !llmind Subs Everything? How is it?

I bought the Cardiak Flatline Drumkit, after reading this thread, and happened to grab the Subs Everything with it. There are 40 samples. I heard a bunch that seem like they would work on a track, but I'm a newbie to rap production (long time listener), so I don't have other collections to compare to.

I was gonna cop Pure Protein 2 too, but let's see if I can make a decent beat with what I've got first. I'm interested in sampling/cutting my own someday, but for now I just wanna make music.

Not only that...the drums in J.Thorns kits (aside from the synth ones) were mostly sampled from vinyl!! LOL

I love chopping vinyl myself...but there is something to be said for some of the better kits out there. You can just load them up and GO.

The only down side is...they are all drums these respective producers have used on artists tracks. Like Beat Butcha for example...his kits are from sessions he did for other artists. But it isn't that big of a deal....and really, the only people who care are us..the forum nerds

You're right all the drums in minty drums are sampled from vinyl pretty much.

Yup plus you can always make drums sound different once you pitch and layer them with others etc

Wordup though glad someone else is feeling those as much as me

Forgot to also respond to this. Only thing I heard is that a good chunk of them aren't very good. That was only one person though and they could have been full of crap so who knows. 80 gb of breaks for that deal is still pretty legit though.

Pretty sure that dude goes digging all the time lol

I'm sure there are plenty of breaks that I won't use...probably tons of them. But it's 40 hours of just breaks. JUST breaks, not the whole arrangement.

That's insane. But yea, even if 20 of those 40 hours are of breaks I wouldn't use or that just downright suck... I'd say it's worth it?

You would have to weigh out if you use 1 shot drums more then breaks

Some people only use breaks others use one shots. It's definitely a great deal though by the sounds of it

I just grabbed the !lly Wonka drum series that !llmind did before christmas where he made 14 beats in 14 days and you can buy the beats/drums for it in a bundle for like 30 or 40 bucks or something.

Really nice kicks in there. For "single shot" snares though i wouldnt recommend it cause its got too many "claps" in the snares and I personally hate that.

It has about the same amount of content in total of a slightly bigger Blap Kit.

Not for nothing, you do have a vested interest, lol. Not trying to be offensive (after all, I did buy UF 1 & 2).

Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way....that could be a major weapon for any designer.

It would be normal to think that, but I am just a collector at heart and have been for almost 15 years. (I am only 27, yes) -- it's been that long. I love to support people doing their thing, and for someone to spend their time, heart, and passion to collect stuff like this, and then be able to give it to the masses at such a great price, definitely deserves some sales. Jordan is awesome.

I'll say what Sirroco can't: if anyone reads this dudes posts, you'll see more tips, free samples, etc... Than damn near ANYone.

He has collaborated with other sample library makers openly, and directly guided folks to reach their own desired sounds... Not to mention the huge amount of material in his commercial packs made for layering that y'all KNOW is going into other folks libraries...

I am, for one, STILL using things from UF4...

SS/UF will always be my first answer when someone wants "fresh" hits... Why? Cuz they sound right in the MIX.

(Rant over)


I'm not BTW trying to sound b!thchy... But everyone on here has a bias- at least some folks own theirs... And even still- when a true master of their craft comes on to offer an opinion, we should enjoy how cool this website is... Because this forum has lost a TON of its heavyweights.

Read the mastering forum, see if anyone is dismissed for "bias"...

Okay, now the rant is over!

You're making me blush! Thanks for the kind words! Although my work schedule has put my away from this forum more than I would like, I still try to keep up with everything going on around here as much as I can. I do appreciate your kind words and loyalty in my works. I have a lot of stuff in the works coming out soon!

On to the next topic, I got the D.R. collection download, it's basically rips of rare break vinyls, these are not 4,8 bar breaks etc. It's a ton of stuff to go through, but so far sounds awesome. Nothing here is cut up for you, some of the wav files are 2gb alone! Lots of obscure near stuff like freestyle percussion sessions and drum instruction vinyls.

I love it though, makes me feel like im virtually 'digging'. Haha.

Cheers.

they're not just any breaks. he doesnt get breaks in between songs. he actually digs for vinyl that are meant for practice. instructional drum vinyl. he may have drums taken from songs, but most of them arent that. he records the whole vinyl as well so you technically don't have to go out and get it yourself. or you can figure out which ones you want to get the vinyl for. he gives you pictures of the record sleeve/cover and both sides are recorded as wav. if theres 2 records he will record them both. these are well worth it. not just drumbreaks taken from songs. way more than that. i don't have the collection, but i do have one volume from it.
