A one-of-a-kind drum sample library.
Beat Fetish Volume 1 is truly a one-of-a-kind drum sample library, filled with an eccentric, yet highly useable compilation of gritty, ear-prickling drum sounds. Use them for the intrigue they can add to your songs. Beat Fetish features 9 drum kits with many different mixes, loops, grooves, and hits recorded in several formats. Compatible with most popular instruments and hosts. Cakewalk even includes the stories behind the content of the sessions by the bands who provide the sounds on this sample collection.
As bands like the New York Dolls and the Sex Pistols were losing their luster at the beginning of the 80's, two new underground styles emerged, industrial and post-punk. Maintaining a harsher sound than more mainstream alternative music, the beats were harder, the music a bit more electronic, with tones darker and harsher. As a drummer and session musician for bands like Public Images, Ltd., and subsequently Brian Brain, Ministry, and Killing Joke, Martin Atkins was engulfed in the scene. While continuing to work as a musician in such bands as Pigface, Murder, Inc., and The Damage Manual, he started working on the other side of the soundboards, engineering, producing, and now running a record label, Invisible Records.
Cakewalk, a leader in the music creation and recording industry has teamed up with this legend of the underground to create Beat Fetish, Volume 1. This hard-hitting drum library is comprised of actual grooves and drums that were programmed, designed, and recorded during sessions that span the past 25 years from some of the genre's most respected producers, including Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies), Flood (Nine Inch Nails, Nitzer Ebb), Mark Walk (Skinny Puppy, ohGr), and Keith "Fluffy" Auerbach (Ministry, Armegeddon Dildos), and others.
