J-Zone - The Wild World of One Shots

J-Zone


After 4 drum break libraries and 6 years of frontin’ on producers requesting one shots, “social distancing” has inspired NYC-based drummer J-Zone to take on the arduous task of curating a library of high quality one-shots from his arsenal of drum sets, snare drums and assorted cymbals and percussion. The engineering, nitpicking, gruntwork and trial and error of creating a one shot library requires time - a lot of it. And with our current global health crisis keeping all of us indoors, Zone was finally able to laser focus and put in the necessary undistracted hours to come up with 100 killer sounds for your beat-making/composing needs. 31 snare drum sounds, 17 kick sounds, 21 hi-hat/cymbal sounds, 9 tom and percussion sounds + a bonus folder of a 22 of the kicks, hi-hats and snares run through an Akai S-950 sampler for a 12-bit sheen (courtesy of sound designer, Bullyfinger) - it’s all there!

Chopping up drum breaks isn’t for everyone, and part of being a working drummer is catering to the needs of the artist and producer. Combine that understanding of drums from the perspective of the drummer, engineer and producer - you get The Wild World of One Shots!
