Beats for days.

The library features more than 320 24-bit, 96 kHz loops and 2 Impact XT preset kits that have been optimized for use with the PreSonus ATOM pad controller. The loops include several beats, grooves, and fills from several genres at many tempos and are available in the same formats as the samples. Genres include rock, fusion, jazz, blues, funk, and our new double-drum-kit loops that can be mixed and matched for endless combinations.

Unique to this drum library, intros and fill patterns flow naturally into the groove, so that cymbal sustain carries over a loop start point to create a more nuanced, natural aesthetic. Other loop packs don’t do this, resulting in unnaturally abrupt cymbal and tom cutoff.

Outros that don't start on the downbeat are often tied into their groove as well, making it easier to place them in the timeline. Count-offs have been left in many of the intros to allow greater flexibility in creating pickup beats without hours of frustration trying to properly place them on the right beat.

Stereo or HD. Your choice.

Tom Brechtlein Drums Vol. 1 is available in stereo only or HD, which includes both stereo and multitrack formats. Either format includes one-shot samples of the drum kit and a multi-layer Impact instrument. Whether you want to play the kit yourself on an ATOM controller or add Tom Brechtlein’s signature style to your production, this library will inspire your creativity and add a little (or a lotta) funk to just about anything.
