We’re back with another Kick Masters pack and this one’s a Techno monster! 150 of the finest, programmed to perfection techno kick drums that will suit just about every sub genre of Techno. It doesn’t matter if you make Full On Techno, Minimal Techno, Classic Detroit Techno, Minimal Tech, Underground Techno or even Berlin Techno, this is the kick sample pack for you. It took absolutely ages to make these techno kicks, a whole chunk of programming time then days of mastering to get the exact punch, low end drive and top end clip to make all of these techno kick drums stand out from the rest. Honestly we reckon once you purchased this Zenhiser pack this will be the only techno kick sample library you will always go to first for your techno kicks.

We’ve supplied every techno kick drum in both mono and stereo versions, we are well aware that the traditionalist will prefer their kicks in mono and the more progressive producer more likely to use the stereo version. As with all Zed 150 kicks even though the stereo versions of the kick are true stereo the main body of the kick drum sits in the centre position so what you are getting is a kick that uses all it’s power in the mono position but adds some extra wonder in the stereo field. Sounds good right, well check out the techno preview to hear these techno kicks in action. We’ve ridden the kicks a little high in the mix just to show you how much power, drive and punch they have. It took a long time in the Zenhiser studio to get these techno kicks to sit apart from the rest and we’re super happy with the result. 300 in total (mono & stereo) techno kick drums that will be spreading like wild fires through the techno scene over the coming months. So don’t get left behind, grab Kick Masters Techno now and lift your techno game to a whole new level!
