  • Snare samples with no dampening and moongel dampening.

  • Create unique tone combinations in your mixes or use them live.

  • Perfect for songwriters, snare sound reinforcement and studio mix engineers.

David Liotta | New Producer

Welcome David Liotta, out newest HX Stomp producer! David is a guitarist for Elevation Worship and has played electric and acoustic guitar on albums such as Hallelujah Here Below, At Midnight, and Graves Into Gardens. He also co-produced Elevation Worship’s stripped project Graves Into Gardens: Morning & Evening.

David’s first bundle, HX Stomp: Elevated Guitars, includes his tones for The Blessing, Rattle!, Graves Into Gardens, Never Lost, and his go-to sounds for any given Sunday. From bright clean tones to subtly overdriven sounds to full on massive distortion, Elevated Guitars is a diverse toolkit. Included are mono and stereo versions of each patch so you can choose the one that’s right for your band setting.

Tim Gosden | Spaces

The sound of a space is just as important as the drums themselves. Hit the drums hard and you’ll feel the explosive life a room creates as it thunders through the air. Tap them gently and the room will softly speak, creating a beautiful atmosphere.

These four bundles from Tim Gosden were sampled capturing not only the drums, but the natural reverb created in some uniquely charactered locations across Manchester. From massive drum hits to tight muted samples, The White Room, The Muted Room, The Stairwell, and The Warehouse will bring the authentic sound of these spaces to your mix.

The White Room

The White Room is an epic space, with hard white halls, high vaulted ceilings and natural brick. This epic sound is further enhanced with a huge marching bass drum, deep brass snare and super low floor tom. Each sample was recorded with the snare wires engaged, for added texture and character, and without, giving a cleaner and more focused sound.

The Muted Room

The Muted Room is all about opposites. Unlike the rest of this series, where I set out to find the biggest spaces possible, these drums were sampled in a tight, dry, muted space. You might be fooled into thinking that these samples just use close mics, but they’re mixed with a stereo pair of overhead mics to ensure that the drums sound punchy, tight and yet still have an amazing stereo width.

The Stairwell

The stairwell I used to sample these drums is incredible. Manchester is an amazing city, full of the heritage of the industrial revolution. All over the city are mills, warehouses and industrial spaces with all the original features still intact. With brick walls and a seemingly endless amount of stairs, these drums thunder through this unique space.

The Warehouse

When it comes to drums, bigger is ALWAYS better. When I put together this bundle I had one goal in mind… find the biggest drums in the biggest space, hit them hard, and cover my ears ready for the explosion! When it comes to worship music, it doesn’t get better than Truth Drums. This monster kit featuring a 24” Kick Drum, 13” Rack Tom, 16” Floor Tom and 18” Floor Tom sounds absolutely incredible. Partnered with a classic Ludwig 402 it’s easy to see why these samples have so much life and weight.

"Since many of us are using the Steven Slate Trigger plugin for your samples, I have included pre-mapped TCI files. Simple drag and drop and you’ll have the different velocity layers and round robins pre-mapped. It couldn’t be easier to audition sounds and create your perfect drum mix!"

Daniel Ferguson | Arctic & Ivy Murdoch

Instruments with character are essential for making music that moves people. Ivy Murdoch & Creation Series: Arctic from Daniel Ferguson are two bundles created with character in mind.

Sampled in a cottage in an old British village, Ivy Murdoch was created sampling a London Murdoch upright piano that has been loved, exhausted and worn for almost 100 years. This bundle captures the sound of dusty strings, clunky hammers and a warped soundboard, all of which combine to create a range of patches which sound just as realistic as they are broken.

Creation Series: Arctic is a reflection of harsh winters and bitter cold. These patches combine brittle cracking sounds with thick dark evolving pads to expand your palette by layering sounds together.

Each of these bundles is compatible with MainStage, Logic, StageReady, Ableton Live 10, and Kontakt.

Aaron Robertson | The Juno: Horizon

The Juno: Horizon is a collection of sounds from Aaron Robertson’s personal Roland Juno 106, used on the Elevation Worship albums "There Is A Cloud," "Hallelujah Here Below," Graves Into Gardens," and "Doxology," and have become an integral part of Aaron’s sound. Filled with bright, gritty, bold, and energetic patches, this bundle encompasses the beauty of a light filled skyline, the feeling of being in the clouds and the mystery of dusk.

The third and final installment in Aaron’s “The Juno” series, this bundle is compatible with MainStage, StageReady, Logic Pro, Ableton Live Intro and Kontakt.
