Sample Kit for MPC - Smoke Breaks Samples - Erik Jackson


Sample Kit for MPC - Smoke Breaks Samples - Erik Jackson


Smoke Breaks is the next installment in Erik Jackson's Original Breaks series (Breaks, Rainy Day Breaks, and Dusted Crates)

Smoke Breaks features: 50 Live Drum breaks and 45 one shots!!

The breaks were recorded with an all-analog chain. No plug in effects used. All drums were played at 93BPM with plenty of Soul!

The samples were recorded with the Audix DP7 drum microphone pack using a combination of a Universal Audio, 4-710D, Universal Audio 2 610 and 3 Rupert Neve Portico pre amps.

If that is not enough, Erik fed everything through the pre amps into an SSL Stereo Bus Compressor and finally recorded to them Studer A800 Tape Machine.

If you desire a more processed sound, Erik loaded some of the one shots into the MPC 2000XL and began to pitch and layer them to taste.

Be prepared to chop in your favorite sampler and make some hits. Again, this is a Breaks Only Pack (with one shots).
