Monosole Music Presents - "Tape to Dub Plate Vol. 2 - Gretsch Round Badge Hits"
Regular price

Monosole Music presents the second in a series of royalty free drum hits and drum breaks recorded directly to tape, mixed using analogue outboard gear, mastered onto a 12" dub plate. and finally sampled back off of the vinyl. This series aims to give you the sound and vibe of the open hits and breaks that crate diggers spend so much of their time searching for, whilst offering the cleaner pre-mastered files for those who prefer that sound. 

Volume two is filled with 60 kick drum, rack tom and floor tom hits. Using a 1960's Gretsch Round Badge drum kit, tuned and dampened using various techniques to create a wide palate. Recorded directly onto analogue tape using modern and vintage microphones. Mixed using analogue compressors and eq's stuffed with valves and transformers, before being sent to a Neumann cutting lathe. Performed and engineered by Timmy Rickard.
