By  | 

More than six months in the making, SM34 Drum Hits contains over 1300 painstakingly crafted kicks, snares, claps, hats, crashes, percussion hits, slams, vintage live kit hits and cymbal FX designed for use in virtually every genre of dance music production.

With seven of Sample Magic’s leading sound designers working on their respective genres, SM34 Drum Hits stands as an essential arsenal of supremely crafted samples to form the backbeat of every genre from house and techno, electro to progressive, dubstep, chillout to chillwave, nu-disco and beyond.

With ease of use at its heart, each hit type is subdivided into as many as seven descriptive sub folders to make finding the hits you want a breeze. Drum Hits also boasts more than 20 custom- programmed genre-focussed drum kit patches for all major DAWs, including Battery, Kong, NN-XT, EXS24 and NN-XT.

Sculpted for maximum character, width and punch, beats don’t get bigger than this.
