The Benefits of Mixed-Ready Drum Samples
Processed samples sound good off the bat. This means that you get inspired more easily and spend more time actually creating music rather than trying to get your mix to sound right.
Unless you are a very good mixing engineer, chances are you usually start with unprocessed samples – because you want to process them your way to get your sound – but you actually never quite get there.
But guess what… by buying samples from smaller developers, you already sound different from the crowd, who always relies on the same old drum libraries. And besides sounding different, you’ll also sound good, because you will be getting your hands on drum samples that were created by talented engineers who know what they’re doing, and who know how to create things that, indeed, sound spot on. The choice is in your hands! Be practical.
