FEEL THE REALNESS
EMPIRE BREAKS packs the timeless essence of classic, sample-based drums into an inspiring Play Series instrument that unlocks the rhythmic sound of golden-era hip hop. Every kick, clap, tom, and hat is captured from brand-new, vintage-style drum recordings, processed with classic gear, and delivered with multiple velocity layers for kits that sound totally natural. Play beats live the old-school way, or draw from a range of custom-made patterns, then dial in extra grit, groove, and swing with a range of easy-to-use macro controls for bodega-dwelling, boombox-blasting beats.
EMPIRE BREAKS was created in collaboration with creating the sound.
Customize your drum sounds from the Kit page. Swap other samples in and out, whilst adjusting pitch, velocity and more whilst toggling 4 insert effects.
