The mission was as simple as it was bold; create a fusion between organic, electronic, high-tech and vintage – a sound library that covered classic sounds but carried them into the new decade, a collection a drums that would sit right away in any contemporary pop, dance, house or hip hop mix.
We ended up with Number 1 Hits, a one-stop-shop for instant pop, dance, house and hip hop drum production. It has all the timeless Linn, TR 909, TR 808 and DR 55 sounds heard in pretty much every modern production that tops the charts of today. On top of that, it comes with a large collection of unique and custom designed acoustic sounds – all of which were run through Niklas Flyckt’s amazing signal chain of SSL, tube vintage compressors and hard-to-find outboard gear.
Don’t waste any time, get started making some Number 1 hits! With these sounds you are literally halfway there!
