DP001 – Spring, Echo, Distort

Dust Palace launches its first, full, boutique drum sample library, Spring, Echo, Distort (DP001). Created by drummer and musical director, Joe Clegg, the professional collection of creative and unusual sounds has been designed with live performance in mind.

Spring, Echo, Distort (DP001) features three classic drum machines, sampled through six analog effect units to produce more than twelve hundred samples. It also includes one hundred and eighty artist loops from @adam.marcello & @marshalldrums @gunbuns, plus @ableton Live 10 presets. Available only from Dust-Palace.com, this sample library offers inspirational, original and unusual sounds for beatmakers and producers of all musical genres. Made for studio production and live performance, Spring, Echo, Distort uses a wide range of analog spring reverb, tape echo, and distortion, guaranteed to add a new dimension to any track. Each effect component has been captured at four stages of input gain, through a collection of analog units coming back into Ableton thorough Neve 1073 pre-amps.

Clegg, the founder of Dust Palace, is known for his work as a live drummer with Ellie Goulding, and musical director with Ellie, Mumford & Sons, Clean Bandit, and others. He has huge experience in developing worldwide arena live shows for internationally acclaimed artists through his company Artclub Live. This has enabled him to develop a unique approach to the use of technology, software and sample automation in the live environment. Clegg invited professional touring drummers, Adam Marcello (Katy Perry), Andrew Marshall (Billie Eilish), Gunnar Olsen (Bruce Springsteen) to help create additional royalty-free drum loops and pre-sets.

Also available FREE from Dust Palace is KIK/SNR (DP000). It contains fifty-two one-shot samples recorded with vintage 1960’s kick and a 70’s snare processed through twelve of their favorite analog effects units. Download DP000 from here.

Look out for further sample packs coming soon. DP002-808 and DP003-CR78 use Roland’s 808 and CR78 electronic drum machines sampled through spring reverb, tape echo and distortion to offer 384 one-shots, 60 loops and Ableton Live 10 presets of pristine, contemporary drum sounds. Also in progress is DP004-ELKA which features an Elka Drumstar 80, a hidden gem from the eighties.
