Native Instruments is offering a free library add-on with three artist drumkits for the Battery 3 percussion sampler. Designed by the Gorillaz, Einstuerzende Neubauten, and Turntablerocker, the new drumkits are based on custom sounds from the artists' own productions.
The "Dracula Eastwood" drumkit by Gorillaz producer Curtis Lynch provides over 60 bass drums, snares, toms, and hi-hats with a distinctive vinyl character. The drumkit designed by avant-garde rockers Einstuerzende Neubauten includes a comprehensive selection of their custom-built scrap metal percussion instruments, recorded in their studio and made available to other musicians for the first time. Lastly, the drumkit contributed by Berlin-based dancefloor veterans Turntablerocker includes more than 60 drum and percussion instruments in various styles from house to hip-hop to R&B.
All three artist drumkits are available as a free download for registered users of Battery 3. For more information, visit www.native-instruments.com.
