Please tell Darrell that I've been blessed to record Gadd, Aronoff, Chester Thompson, Paul Leim, Eddy Bayers, and many first-call guys, and that his tracks knocked my dick in the dirt. Tone, time, feel, audio quality, and tracks provided were all A-list material. He has a new fan in Germany...
...That dude is an amazing guy to have on your side, Jon. Keep using him!!
Drum samples I’ve purchased in the past have been somewhat disappointing - a lot of single velocity, pre-mixed, over-hyped drum sounds that don’t blend well with a real kit. Darrell’s samples are very well-recorded, and besides the awesome variety of drums you get, each is recorded with multiple mics, velocity layers, and articulations (where appropriate). There are even some extra effects like saturation, compression and ambience included. Recently I was mixing a song with home-recorded drums that were less than ideal. I pulled up Trigger 2 and browsed Darrell’s samples, A/Bing with the original drums. I found it very easy and intuitive to find a drum I liked and then mix the multiple channels on the fly right within Trigger 2, creating a part that meshed well with the original vibe of the kit, while giving me more impact and punch in the mix.
I gotta tell you that these samples sound fantastic!!! When I pulled them up in a session and went through them - I was extremely pleased at the quality! Man, there are so many snare samples that I can use. I think these are the best sounding samples that I have! I really appreciate you making them available and the price is very fair!
My favorite thing about the Darrell Nutt Signature Drum Pack is that they sound like real drums - but better! As a producer that's mostly using real world sounds, nothing is more frustrating for me than when I pull up samples that are too processed and won't be able to easily blend in the song. These drums sound great, are easy to use, and fit an important missing spot in my sound arsenal.
When I have two different genres that I'm mixing that need to be done now, I know without a doubt, I can pull up Darrell's drum pack and feel at ease that I will get the right sound I'm looking for with superior sound quality. I love the flexibility I get with this pack. Thanks Darrell for helping my mixes go smoothly.
