Now you can have Swiss Chris and his powerful playing style right in your DAW. In this first collection we feature booming old school breaks, big up front hip hop beats and of course hard hitting DnB breaks. The pack contains 338mb of content recorded with a selection of vintage mics through a set of 3124+ API mic pres.
All the samples are 24 bit 44.khz and were captured using a Pro Tools HD system. The pack was recorded by Derek Nievergelt and Lenny Dee at Brooklyn's Tight Spot studios in a fairly dead room to give each break a tighter sound so you can add effects and have more control over the sound source when using the great selection of loops and one shots.
The loops and breaks were mixed and cut to perfection by BHK to ensure that the breaks can be used in any modern production.
The pack also features 135 REX2 Acid wav and Apple loops to use in your track or production. The loops maintain a live feel to preserve Swiss’s unique playing style. The pack is available in Apple and Wav formats.
No stone was left unturned in making this pack, we even threw in Battery 3, Machine, Fx-Pansion's Geist, NN-XT, Kontakt, Redrum and Logic ESX.
If you’re into tuff drum loops with personality then look no further Swiss Chris Breakbeats is the pack for you.
