PLEASE watch the RAW Samples Layering video to get an idea how to use the RAW Series Sample Packs.
These samplers have been crafted for one purpose only: Layering!
Each pack consists of two folders: Primary and Secondary. Within each sub folder sit the samples which are broken down into Kicks, Snares and Claps.
Primary Sample Folders have 50 mono Kicks, 50 mono Snares and 50 mono Claps.
Secondary Sample Folders have 50 stereo widened and phase canceled: Kicks, Snares and Claps.
There are a total of 300 samples per pack and all packs can be interchanged.
Primary samples are in mono as they sit above the Secondary samples which are used to enhance the Primary.
Secondary samples have undergone both phase cancelation and Middle and Side (M/S). Using these techniques the center channel information has been frequency consciously removed with the sides being created and filtered for extended width.
These processes have been covered in the latest Sound On Sound article I have written and also in the form of a video tutorial which is the follow up to the book The Art of Drum Layering entitled The Art of Drum Layering Advanced.
None of the sample packs are genre specific as they have been treated so that you can simply layer and tweak to taste creating your own textures.
PLEASE listen to the audio demo and download the FREE samples.
Each demo is structured as follows with 2 Layered Kicks followed by 2 Layered Snares and concludes with 2 Layered Claps:
Kick Layered followed by Primary Kick and Secondary Kick
Snare Layered followed by Primary Snare and Secondary Snare
Clap Layered followed by Primary Clap and Secondary Clap
