BeatSkillz Retro Bundle

Here’s what you get…

Retro Hit

Retro Hit is inspired from the pop/dance and rock sound of popular bands and artists from the 1980′s. The plug-in provides 50 Drum kits of Kicks, Snares, Hats, Cymbals, Claps, Toms ,FX and Percussion which are available as processed versions already treated with eq, compression and reverb, and also some dry versions.

BeatSkillz provide the processed sounds as well, so that the producer/musician can be instantly inspired and can get to producing music, rather than tweaking the raw sounds from scratch. Dry untreated versions are also provided for those who want to tweak them on their own. The plug-in provides drum kits of 12 sounds per patch. These are visible as buttons that light up when played on the GUI.

Individual control per drum is also provided for Volume and Pan. Global settings for Pitch, Reverb, Attack and Sustain are also provided. Find mixed kits, kick drums, snares, hats, cymbals, toms, percussion and fx and mixed kits as preset kits to inspire you. All of the 600+ Drum samples are also provided as .wavs to use in other samplers such as hardware samplers and also controller based beatboxes such as Akai MPC and Native Instruments Maschine. You can also load them in any other soft sampler of your choice, or simply place them directly in your audio track. You can choose your method of production, making this a very versatile library!

The samples were recorded directly from vintage drum machines, namely; EMU sp12, OB- MX, LINN DRUM and Fairlight. The sounds were tracked and recorded through a selection of tube and solid state pre-amps and compressors such as NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pre’s, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978.

Retro KZ

Retro KZ is a Virtual Instrument rompler inspired from 80′s Soundtracks for Films and TV, as well as Pop Music. It features the sounds you’ve heard countless times from that era and always wanted but couldn’t find! Well, here they are, sampled from original 80′s Synths and samplers using high-quality outboard gear for maximum fidelity.

BeatSkillz pay homage to the sounds of the great soundtracks from the 80′s; from composers and tv series/movies such as, John Carpenter, Harold Faltermeyer, Jan Hammer, Michael Jackson, Prince, Knight Rider, The Terminator, Commando, etc.

Certain iconic sounds showed up in many such projects, and BeatSkillz decided to embark on the journey of bringing you the very sounds you know, sounds you can identify immediately as soon as you hear them!

BeatSkillz have sampled and tweaked these patched from original synths such as: Fairlight, Synclavier, Yamaha DX7, Roland D-50, EMULATOR II, KORG M1, OBERHEIM OBX, PROPHET 5, SYNTHEX and many more…

The sounds were recorded using analog outboard gear such as: NEVE 1073, Thermionic Culture Rooster, and Electrodyne pre’s, Distressor, Api 2500 and Drawmer 1978. Also, external effects were used from Eventide and Lexicon, and hardware Eq, compression and reverbs were applied to the dry samples to re-create the original 80′s vibe!
