96x MPC drum samples and 29 midi grooves created with the legendary MPC2000xl. Drums have been sourced from vinyl and drum machines, filtered, clipped and edited in the MPC, processed to perfection with an Overstayer modular channel, and mapped to your favorite DAWs and samplers.
For this pack, we ran a contest - whoever can create the best track using only the MPC2000 Snacks samples for drums, wins an MPC2000XL and free samples for life.
After extensively reviewing 600+ submissions, we spent weeks narrowing down the results, with 7 judges ultimately choosing a winner who demonstrated an expertise in drum programming and music production, and showed off a healthy selection of the samples, while creating a catchy, super musical and understated track that can easily stand on its own regardless of this competition:
Each soundcloud track description includes a short artist bio, and information on how they created their track.
Although the competition was a lot of work for everybody involved, it was extremely rewarding and inspiring to connect with so many producers worldwide, give away an MPC, and hear how are samples are being used in people's music. Until the next one!
