As you probably know we are big fans of the 80’s sound here at Zenhiser and it wouldn’t be right to go a few months without an exciting new 80’s pack for you guys to muck around with. So without anymore time wasting we would like to introduce “80’s Beats Re-Worked”. The idea behind this latest sample pack was to create a new 80′ drum beat library that sounded like all those classic beats you remember but adapt both the drum sounds and patterns to create something exciting and made you say, “Where have I heard that beat from”.
With this new concept in mind we spent weeks creating a new 80’s drum kit (an absolute stunner, 80s Retro Drummer) with all the bells and whistles bounced and mastered within the drum sounds, then we set off to make a timeless collection of 80’s drum loops that would inspire producers and remixers to add that 80’s sound to their productions. After another hard few weeks in the Zenhiser studio and with us doing all the hard work of perfectly programming, cutting and mastering each drum loop we developed this crafty sample pack of 80’s drum loops that you can instantly knowing you’ve got something fresh and exciting to play with without any of the man hours and hard work.
The sample pack contains 50 drum beats, all with at least three versions, the full loop, the full loop without kick and the stripped down version for breakdowns, build ups and tension moments. All recorded in 24 bit wav goodness, looped perfectly with the bpm added to the file name makes using these 80’s beats an absolute breeze. So if your looking for something new that sounds old and hasn’t been heard before (makes sense in our heads) then these drum loops are for you. Check out the preview to hear just how crisp and authentic these 80’s beats sound, and we’re sure they’ll be in your shopping cart by the end of the preview. We even started with the slow beats and worked up in bpm to give you an idea of the broad range these 80’s beats can be used for. Aaaah, more eighties please!
