You read that correctly. Legendary MPC master and all-around beat-smasher Just Blaze is giving away the raw drum samples he used for most of his productions during the early 2000’s. While he makes a bunch of disclaimers about how he did a lot of processing and layering, producers have to be salivating at the opportunity to get pro sounds straight out the MPC from one of the greatest digital drummers of our time. Most folks would charge upwards of $30 bucks just for a taste.
This is all part of the Meow The Jewels charity project.
Thanks to all who contributed to making Meow The Jewels a success. For the uninitiated, I promised to contribute a remix to the project if it was funded, and as an added bonus a good amount of the signature drums I used on many records in the early half of the 2000’s. Please note these are the raw, relatively unprocessed files straight out of my MPC (hence the delay in tracking them down and getting them to you guys). That said, in most cases, you’re not going to instantly press a pad and be like ‘OMG, IT’S THE SUCH AND SUCH SNARE!’ (though that will happen in a few cases). I used a lot of layering, compression, and EQ / Mix techniques to get these things to sound like the drums many of you knew and loved. Enjoy this starting point, and happy drumming! P.S. This is just the beginning. Stay tuned to Splice.com for much more!!
