I’m going to start a petition to nominate Illmind as the hardest working man in the drum sample business. Just 6 months after dropping the wildly popular 808s & String Breaks, Illmind drops his latest Blap Kit Volume 4. Of course, my man the Drum Broker is Johnny on the spot with the kit freshly packaged and ready for your consumption over at HipHopDrumSamples.com.
It goes without saying that Illmind’s series of drum kits are must-haves for any hiphop drum library and stash. Blap Kit Volume 4 is no exception. Check out the demo medley below.
- Over 120 NEW drum sounds (kicks, snares, hi-hats, claps, snaps & tambourines) in 16-bit/44 WAV format.
- 4 EXCLUSIVE drum-break loops played by !llmind and created from actual drums, eq’d and processed.
- All drum sounds were sampled into an Ensoniq ASR-10 AND Akai S-20 at 33khz/12-bit for maximum warmth + punch!NO reverb or delays added make layering easy and more flexible.
- NO compression or saturation/flat “pancake” sounds.
- Carefully mastered just “under-zero”. NO nasty “digital-clipping”.
- All drum sounds were hand-picked, created, and stripped by !llmind himself from his personal drum stash.
- Includes drum kits used on beats !llmind produced for Kanye West during the making of G.O.O.D. Music’s “Cruel Summer” LP.
- BONUS !llmind custom-made digital “sweepers”, never before heard.
- Also includes 3 signature !llmind “bass tones” in key “C” – “B”, ready to easily map on your keyboard.
Special Edition ASR-10 Blap Drive
Also available is the special edition ASR 10 flash drive. The flash drive is a “16GB USB Memory Drive” molded in the form of the classic ASR-10 keyboard sampler. For those that don’t know the ASR 10 is the secret weapon and production darling of producers like Illmind, Jake One and Kanye West. This particular flash drive is nicely branded with “!llmind” on the surface and it comes in a couple of flavors.
