Loopmasters turn to Bristol’s freshest bass-meisters Ross, Dan and Rob — also known as the Mediks — to deliver this slice of drum and bass sample library goodness. Focusing around the original uptempo jump-up sound of the genre, the pack is filled to the rafters with deep, wobbly basses and high-impact drum samples that have been associated with the drum and bass scene that is still flourishing in deepest Bristol. If the style of Rusko in d&b mode and Excision is your bag, then this is the pack for you.
As the blurb so simply puts it, ‘Expect to hear over 500Mb of precision-tooled samples including cutting-edge beats, bold basslines, upfront leads, twisted SFX and a whole bunch of filthy one-shot sounds ready to drop into your drum and bass productions’. The Mediks have used their extensive production know-how to bring to the masses a sample pack that champions their sound and gives instant inspiration for those future drum and bass dancefloor fillers.
To make things even easier for producers, as well as the usual sample formats ‘Drum and Bass Surgery’ is available in Ableton Live Pack, Apple Loops and Reason Refill variations which can be purchased separately, and producers can even buy various elements of the pack individually at a reduced rate.
