New Sound Library: Cassette Drums

New Sound Library: Cassette Drums

Sound Oracle New Sound Library, “The Cassette Drums" coming June 30th 2017. presents Cassette Drums. An aggressive mixture of kicks, snares, hats, and percussion loops processed with the warm beauty and brutality of worn out cassette tapes.

Since the late 1940’s, Analog Tape has been vital in the creation of a warm and exotic saturated sound that has become a staple, not only in American Culture but also Worldwide. Emitting a gritty and dirty characteristic, this sonic quality helped give birth to some of the hard-hitting genres we know and love today. With these elements in mind, I proudly bring to you Cassette Drums.

This collection is quintessential in giving your beats a thick and heavy “In Your Face” sound that serves perfectly to add some rugged and warm contrast to some of your cleaner compositions. With this pack alone, no expense was spared in creativity. Taking old Vintage Cassette Tape Players (Ampex, Tascam, Marantz, Sony, and Fostex) and meticulously handcrafting and recording to each specific brand. My aim was to use them in “As Is” condition with no calibration. This helped create an unorthodox “Straight Out of the Basement” sound, filled with harmonic gritty saturation in a league of its own.
