Impact Soundworks Groove Bias
Retro Drums Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Full
Relive an era of classic drum sounds where funk was king! With three old-school drumkits recorded through all analog gear, tape, and vintage mics, you'll never sample an old drum break again!
The goal of Groove Bias was to create a set of deeply sampled acoustic drum kits inspired by classic 50s, 60s, and 70s records and the timeless breakbeats we all know and love. For decades, these sounds have been imitated and sampled over and over, but many producers have preferred to try and capture old kits with pristine, modern recording methods. Not so with this library. Our motto was "the more tubes, the better," and we armed ourselves to the teeth with beat-up mics, analog gear, vintage drums, and tape machines.
We put over eight months of work into the meticulous recording and editing process, whole sessions going by before we were finally satisfied with a single snare sound. The result is what we think you'll agree is the funkiest, "phattest" acoustic drum library around. We hope you enjoy Groove Bias!
The three custom kits of Groove Bias were recorded and performed in three studio locations across the United States, then chopped, tweaked, and edited by Andrew Aversa of Impact Soundworks.
