The amen break has and always will be one of those iconic drum breaks you just can't get enough of. I would go as far as to say it is the most iconic and well known break of all time. Still to this day it is used throughout nearly every genre of music. Why? Because it's full of life and sounds so gritty and loose it's awesome.
So 5 years after remastering the amen break and over 100,000 downloads later, we have decided to remaster it again. Why you may ask. Well this time we're going the extra mile. Over the past 5 years we have sourced drum breaks from various places. From old vinyls, from other engineers and off tapes. Were now bringing all these drum breaks together into one download, ready for the beginning of 2019. To be released as a 50 years of drum breaks re-mastered by Audio Animals.
Why use the re-mastered breaks you may ask, why not use the original breaks? Firstly you may not have these breaks, especially breaks recorded from the original source audio. The re-mastered breaks aren't mastered how you would a song for release. They are mastered more subtly so that you still have a full dynamic range. Each break has been carefully run through our analogue mastering chain. Resulting in these breaks being taken from flat breaks into a new realm of audio quality. Believe me you will not want to use the original breaks after you hear these.
The sample pack will be due for release in the first week of January 2019 in WAV format only. The sample pack will be free to download from the Audio Animals sample shop here. In total were hoping to include around 250 to 500 original drum breaks in what will be considered one of the largest collections of original sourced classic breaks available to download online. We hope to see you back here on the Audio Animals website at the beginning of January 2019 to download and try out our new remastered drum breaks.
