There are now many natural sounding, perfectly recorded drum plugins available and hardware machines that sound very convincing.
The idea behind GRITMATTER was to build a drum sample pack that runs in the opposite direction.
These drums embrace the crunchy, dirty blown out sound of analog distortion and dying MPC converters.
Recorded using an all analog signal path with Neve and API type preamps in a heavy concrete space, lots of character and punch is baked into GRITMATTER.
We did as much of the audio engineering work for you as we could. A good sample pack is fun to play with right out the the box.
The goal was to make drums we could just drag into a project and sound amazing right away, without tons of processing, then be able to use them over and over again in lots of different contexts.

What is Multisampling and Why Does It Matter?
Inside the GRITMATTER pack you will find some folders with several slightly different samples of the same drum or cymbal. Why would you want that?
By rotating between a different snare drum or hi hat sample each time its triggered, a more natural sounding result is achieved that's closer to a real drummer.
Some samplers can automate this process with "round robin" sampling. This means that the sampler will never play the same sample 2 times in a row. Each hit is slightly different, just like a human drummer never hits a drum exactly the same way twice.
Total size of the pack is 532MB. All files are recorded as 48kHz 24-Bit WAV
