Native Instruments has released a free library add-on with three artist drum kits for the acclaimed percussion sampler BATTERY 3. The new kits were designed by NI endorsees Gorillaz, Einstuerzende Neubauten, and Turntablerocker, and are based on exclusive custom sounds from these artists’ own productions.
The “Dracula Eastwood” kit by Gorillaz producer Curtis Lynch provides BATTERY 3 users with high-quality drum sounds destined for all kinds of urban grooves. It includes an assortment of over 60 bass drums, snares, toms and hihats that all carry a distinctive vinyl character.
The kit designed by legendary avantgarde rockers Einstuerzende Neubauten includes a comprehensive selection of their famed custom-built scrap-metal percussion instruments, recorded in their own studio exclusively for Native Instruments, and made available to other musicians for the first time.
Berlin-based dancefloor veterans Turntablerocker contributed a special selection of drum sounds from their “wildstyle” production library. Over 60 drum and percussion instruments cover styles from house to hip hop and R’n’B.
All three artist kits are now available as a free download for registered users of BATTERY 3.
