Raw, distorted, and truly unique - Bea.ts II was made using vintage and boutique circuitry, overdriven mixing boards, analog drum generators, cassette tape, and an army of effects pedals. Bea.ts II features an assortment of pitched and unpitched percussion one shots, kicks, tones, and richly textured chords.
The pack focuses on non-standard percussion, the raw sounds of analog circuitry reacting to noise sources, feedback loops, tape manipulation and field recording. The collection utilizes the full frequency spectrum to offer a wide variety of transient oriented sounds from resonant kicks to textured noise.
36 kick drum one shots
68 percussion one shots
21 noise loops from analog and digital sources
22 chord one shots
19 tone one shots, perfect for creating playable instruments
166 samples in total.

(A technical note; many of the percussion samples’ transients begin immediately, which means you’ll want to turn off your DAW’s auto fade feature to avoid losing the punch.)
