Have you been using, chopping and re-arranging the same vintage fills for years?
Great fills are hard to find, when you do find them it´s rare to have the flexibility or range you´d ideally like. It´s a problem we´ve experienced ourselves on many occasions, and it´s why we´ve created ´Vintage Drums: The Fills´.
These loops are full of soul, and we hope represent an exemplary and definitive collection which will meet all your expectations. As well as conventional time signatures you´ll find some unusual ones, and we´ve also moved into styles that are otherwise fairly uncharted on more conventional packages.
After our initial aim of a couple of hundred prime fills we had such great sessions in the studio that we just kept going and recipients of this package will be getting over 1,500 files encompassing not only the fills themselves but full drum breaks, rides, hats and percussion too. This is a truly comprehensive selection and we hope that this latest Freshtone release will fit neatly into your production arsenal.
Recorded again in a true vintage analogue environment with drummers Emre Ramazanoglu and William Bowerman, and in WAV/Aiff/Acid WAV/Rex 2 formats we are also included full multisampled, velocity sensitive kits for EXS24 and Kontakt as users requested after our first release.
Produced by Matthew Corbett and Mike Wilkie
