Seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer, producer and mixer John “Yosh” Jaszcz has introduced Volume 2 of his popular drum sample library, Yosh’s Drum Warehouse. The expansive collection features more than 2,000 new multi-sampled, multi-velocity drum hits recorded with three different kits and over a dozen snare drums to fit the groove of a wide range of music genres.
Many of today’s younger engineers think of sampling and fattening up recorded drums as something that’s just been possible fairly recently, but Yosh and like-minded engineers have been sampling and triggering since the mid-1980s, layering samples with the recorded tracks to make the drum hits a little fatter and subtly punch through in the mix. In those early years, it was complicated, cumbersome and tedious to get samples lined up with a track. But nowadays, it’s infinitely easier to get amazing results fast.
The new Volume 2 sample library joins the successful and lauded Yosh’s Drum Warehouse Volume 1. Vol. 1 offers more than 600 samples (24-bit, 48 kHz WAV files) recorded using two full drum kits and nine different snare drums. Like Vol. 2, the Vol. 1 library includes multi-sampled, multi-velocity samples compatible with Slate’s Trigger 2.
Yosh’s Drum Warehouse Vol. 2 is available now for an introductory price of $79.99 U.S. MAP ($99.99 regular price). Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are also available together as a bundle. Combined, the bundle offers more than 3,000 samples, five full drum kits and 22 different snares — for $149.
