MsP Production Vault: MPC 2000XL Hip-Hop Kit

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Producers… come out to play… =D

Another week for a big sample kit, this one has more than 700 samples. Some of these samples are tagged with AKAI MPC2000XL, so we’re going with that for the title. For those who don’t know, the MPC (short for Music Production Center) and its various models are frequently used samplers/sequencers by producers, especially by the hip-hop producer community. It allows you to play the drum patterns and record them to give your drum patterns a less robotic feel.

While I was at a producer forum in the city a few years back that featured DJ Premier, Evil Dee of Da Beatminerz and DJ Quik, I heard both Premo and Dee (don’t remember if Quik mentioned anything) mentioned how the MPC was a crucial tool in their production processes when they were interviewed by the moderator. I don’t know if the MPC’s came with pre-loaded sounds, but perhaps that is where these sounds come from. A lot of quality drums here; they can be used for a variety of hip-hop styles.

Head on out to our Production Vault and get your free drums today!

Here’s Vincent, D-Ran a.k.a. Timmy Tidus, and I performing at the Coffee Cave in Newark, New Jersey this past Saturday (July 24, 2010). It was a Black Flag Shoppe event called “NJ HAS IT.” Vincent had a 15 minute set, and in the middle we did this cut. It’s the United Five theme for the clothing label, who also gave me the Biggie Babe t-shirt that I’m rockin in this vid. You can check their stuff out at http://www.united-five.com.

MsP Production Vault: Filthy Drums and More 909’s

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

You know what day it is. ;o)

After last week’s huge set, we have an even bigger set for you guys today. We have the Filthy Drums kit which has a lot of great drum sounds including some hi-hat loops, crashes, percussion, shakers and some tambourines to add on to the necessities of kicks, snares and hats. There’s even a specific folder for open hats which should help you producers looking for a good matching open hat to your closed ones.

In addition, I’ve added more 909’s for you old school drum machine types. =]

If the 500+ kit from last week wasn’t enough, this 600+ kit should give you some good ammo for your next several productions.

Head on out to our Production Vault and get your free drums today!
