BLAP KIT 4 REVIEW
BLAP! BLAP! BLAP! BLAP! !llmind is back with another game changing installment, BLAP Kit Volume 4. Its packed with over 120 new sounds in WAV format. From punchy drums and snares to signature bass tones and sweepers, BLAP-KIT Vol. 4 will have your tracks on another level sonically.
All the drum sounds were sampled through an Ensoniq ASR-10 & Akai S-20. This gives the drums grit and warmth that is very distinctive. The kicks are crazy, great punch in their space. Some “Say It With Ya Chest” drums! Wide transients makes them full in the 100 to 250 range. Snares are killing with great snap and body around 400. Dope texture added with some snares layered with hats. The hi hats are great with the grimy surface and crispy shine on the high end. I also like how !llmind set up the hats; not all of them are hitting on the one. That gives you a loose feel and not so tight on the grid when you quantize.
A new addition to the BLAP-Kit series are bass tones and sweepers. Sweepers are the sounds used to help transition a beat into the next sequence. We all know that 1 sweeper rising sound that has to retire! Refreshing to get 10 custom joints! The 3 bass tones are ready to be mapped across your keyboard. These sub sonic synth bass tones start at “C” going up the scale. Adjusting the ADSR setting on the Maschine, you can tweak your attack and release values to your liking (Might need a video).
Last in the kit are 4 drum-break loops played by !llmind. These were played on a actual drum kit mic’d up eq’d and processed. Great for mixing live and programmed drums in your beats.
BLAP-KIT Volume 4 is by far the cleanest sounding kit out in the drum world! Check out the melody below to see how !llmind crafted some bangers with the same sounds! Get it now!
