Snipe Young Comments

Like DP Vol, I wanted to use the same analog approach with digital thoughts. The inbox processing was done with the Slate Digital Plug-ins to keep the vibe in the same realm. Slate plug-ins allowed me to maintain the atmosphere that I created outside the box and lastly, I had to warm everything with the Virtual Tape Machine.

As an MPC user, you will gain a ton of well processed samples that will give you that authentic MPC feel, chunky snares, big kicks, glassy live hats, thick live toms, and plenty of loops to get your next track going.

Jay (Smyrna, DE, US)
It's a good kit to start with

If you're looking for "Trap-HipHop" type of sounds Dark Parallax 2 has a plethora of them. While some sounds on here are unique I find a lot of them to overlap with what comes on most kits these days. There are some nice alterations on sounds but it's somewhat more of the same. If you don't already have "the same" that is. I felt like if I didn't have this kit I wouldn't miss it since as I previously mentioned so many MPC Expansions kits incorporate the same Trap sounds.I was looking forward to getting some different drums but this had too few of those for it to be a "go to" kit for me.
