Jungle Break Kits

3

I've made a few jungle break kits at this point, but most of them are made from classic breaks.
Two questions:

Would it be okay to post kits made from breaks like the Amen, Apache, think, etc etc that have been used thousands of times?

Is anyone interested?

    Also, any specific breaks anyone wants? If we decide that the copyright issue is too risky, I can gin up some reasonable similar sounding ones with the right microtiming and play feel.

    Here's a link to a full Amen kit with all of the hits, shuffles, and a couple of reverses and FX. It's good from 160 to 175 BPM or so and all the sounds are in a choke group for easy mono tracker stylings. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1179LHvjwj-PF0H67-V5IYEH9eu6d6OJ8/view?usp=sharing
    If PPL like it, I have a ton of others made from other breaks configured in different ways for different approaches.

    If it's too tricky to place the samples and kits, I can also make a dummy song with some kits in it.

    This is a great idea 🙂 I already have the common breaks as kits, but just as simple 8ths slices, without any reverses or FX. Around 100 breaks/kits in total…I'd be happy to share them here, even if you're the only other person who's interested 😄

    Which kit/play settings do you use for sliced breaks? I find Cut Mode (+ Choke) pretty good because you can change the length of hits to create choppy cuts, without a "dummy" row. But I have to use the gold knob to pitch hits up/down, whereas in Stretch Mode you could do it by changing the note length 🤔

    So I have a few using stretch too for easy pitching. I did an amen where half of the hits were stretch, and half cut for some variety. I frequently just do "once" like the default slice does, but take the release down to 0 and get fiddly with the start and end points on the slices to keep the transients clean and the cymbals ringing without stuttering. I also sometimes do longer phrases starting with kicks or snares to keep the flow really nice, but they're much more sensitive to small bpm adjustments.

    Super interested in what you have set up, and I've got at least a few dozen break kits that are super useful in specific ways. I'd love to hear what you're doing as well.

    @alphaminus many thanks for sharing. I have been planning to get amen into my deluge actually; it's instant prodigy to me.

    There is not plenty of talk here, so you may not hear it adequatly to your input but you are making amazing contribution sharing your tracks and now kits. It is very much appreciated.
    A song is self-contained, so probably the optimum for future use when there are dozens of kits.
    I think it would be good to hear from the most experienced users on how they manage their content. They may have already done some essential trial and error.

    Drums and sounds are always welcome as they take a lot of time to refine (or is it my level of competence).

    Even presets themselves based on the factory sample base can surprise with their diversity. I am building a selection of presets and am going to share soon too.
