Fresh from the Zenhiser studio comes a 80’s drum kit that will simply blow you away. The attention to detail on these 80’s drum sounds is second to none and literally took us weeks to produce using the same concept and tricks that were used back in the 80’s by high end studios and producers. ’80’s Retro Drummer’ is a drum kit that not only sounds like it was created in the eighties but stands up against any modern drum kit. We used analogue and digital tools the same way they were used in the 80’s combined with our mastering platform to lift each and every drum sound to a whole new level. ’80’s Retro Drummer’ is by far the most authentic sound you can get without any of the incredibly hard work, so in seconds you can be producing 80’s inspired beats or simply using the reverb snares in your techno productions, kicks in your tech house tracks or even 80’s percussion in your electro house anthem.

Clocking in at just over 390 authentic 80’s drum sounds means this sample pack is an all in one pack for all producers and remixers. With styles and techniques used by some of the pioneers of the 80s including Phil Collins, Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Simple Minds, Duran Duran, Human League, Tears For Fears, Art Of Noise, Steve Winwood and more this is a sample pack with a decade of pure 80’s drum history.
