Classic Breaks from the 1980s played by one of the most successful session drummers of all time, Geoff Dugmore.
EIGHTIES DRUMS is a massive sample library from the drum legend that is Geoff Dugmore. It takes its inspiration from the great drum tracks of the 1980s. Geoff Dugmore is a British professional musician who has played drums and percussion on over 150 hit records, including 44 no.1 albums.
Over 13GB of material is arranged in two different ways. Firstly, we have the full kit loops in both dry and FX mixes. Secondly, we have given you all the separate tracks from the recording sessions, so you have complete control over how you want to use the kit. There are separate tracks for kick, snare, toms, and cymbals as well as room mics, Centre mic and each of the different effects that are used. Effects used include delays, reverbs, modulation, and compression etc.
The drumkit used is a DW Jazz series set with Sabian cymbals recorded through an API 1608 desk to Pro Tools. The API desk is ideally suited to recording drums because it gives a very punchy and mid-forward sound.
The library comes in Kontakt3, EXS24, Reason and HALion sampler formats as well as Acidized Wavs and Apple Loops.
