Raw Vermona DRM1 follows a simple concept in our sample catalogue: sampling drum machines in its pure rawness, without any processing.
Most contemporary sample packs focus on highly un-dynamic samples. Audio-destructive processes like normalisation and digital compression are the norm rather than the exception.
We are not saying this is a bad decision. We do this ourself on other sound packs, and it’s a good way to imprint character of certain styles or eras to your sounds. There’s been an ongoing Loudness War going on in the Music Industry, and everybody is on the same one-way-only train: my library has to sound louder than yours.
Here at HelloSamples we think that there should be a market for more dynamic sounding samplepacks. And here is our little contribution.
