"I set out to make this sample pack with a very clear vision. I wanted create a pack which married the classic gritty sounds of vintage Drum & Bass with today's contemporary sound and crystal clear high end production. This ethos and cross pollination of techniques is something that runs very strong in Fracture & Neptune productions and is the building blocks of our label, Astrophonica.
When creating the bass loops in this pack I stuck to methods I use in my own productions. You will find the loops have been split into 2 layers; A sub bass layer and a mid range or top end layer. This is a tried and tested technique within Drum & Bass and allows you much more control over the morphing and effecting of your bass line. When mixed together, the two layers combine to create a full bass line with character and weight. You can then add effects and morphing to the mid or top layer, while keeping the sub layer untouched. This allows for a much cleaner mix with prominent bite and character to the bass line while keeping the weight and warmth in tact. The drum loops have been created in a similar way. You will find that each beat has been supplied as a full loop but also as it's composite parts. For instance, snare layer, kick layer and hi hat layer. This gives you maximum flexibility and allows you to completely re edit the loops to make them your own.
Every loop and sound has been worked on specially for this pack and let me tell you it was often hard work stopping myself turning them into full tunes for my label! " - Fracture
