Native Instruments have released Empire Breaks, a Kontakt library that packs the timeless essence of classic, sample-based drums into an inspiring Play Series instrument that unlocks the rhythmic sound of golden era Hip Hop. It’s available for £44.00.
Every kick, clap, tom, and hat is captured from brand-new, vintage-style drum recordings, processed with classic gear, and delivered with multiple velocity layers for kits that sound totally natural. Play beats live the old-school way, or draw from a range of custom-made patterns, then dial in extra grit, groove, and swing with a range of easy-to-use macro controls for bodega-dwelling, boombox-blasting beats.
- Dig deep into golden-era boom bap drums; punchy kicks, solid snares, and crispy hats
- Layer big bass, orchestral stacks, off-kilter keys, and game-changing hybrid textures
- Unlock 480 groove patterns that can be edited in any DAW with MIDI drag and drop
- Part of the Play Series: Great-sounding presets and real-time control with an intuitive interface
Empire Breaks requires a free or full version of Kontakt.
