Lets dive straight in!

Breaks

Sparkling collection of breaks. Very well put together. All of the breaks (besides a couple) have that trademark Bladerunner pace and drive/roll. The compression and EQ are just perfect on these breaks. No additional EQ or compression needed. They just work. Period. There is plenty there to choose from and enough variety to keep sorted for plenty of tracks. All the BPMs are roughy 175 so quite pace-y but its

DRUM & BASS DREAD STYLEEEE!!!

Musical Loops

To give you a taste of what you can achieve with the samples Bladerunner has compiled a nice set of Bass and Music Loops.The BPM and Key of each sample is clearly labelled and to be fair you get a little spoilt for choice! Nice floating Rhodes to sinister strings pads are backed up by 808 bass filtering warping riffs and Dread Reese bass. If you’re going for the Bladerunner style Bass lines you lucked out because he left nothing out in this pack.

DRUM HITS

When it comes to the drum hits one thought comes to mind. Pretty stock standard. Nothing special here but hey, what was you expecting? Really, they will do the job. Just layer the hits up in Ableton or Kontakt and away you go. There is plenty of variety to cover all that you need. You only get 20 hits in each category but that’s plenty… believe me.

FX

The FX section was a bit of a let down but the samples are true to the genre/Bladerunner. So lots of hoovers/lasers/and rise effects. You don’t get many and there ain’t loads of variety but they’re good enough to add a little spice to your tracks.

SAMPLE PATCHES

All the different types of sample packs are catered for here. So I fired up my Kontakt to see what i could come up with myself.
The Music Hits folder is definitley the stand out here. So easy to get some ideas going with the Patches. Lush pads and strings, guitar chords, Horns and Sax round out a nice collection of sounds perfect for creating a vibe or music bed to start off a track with. Great quality!

WHATS MISSING?
Well some shakers/tambs/crashes/rides would have been nice but i suppose there is plenty of those available to you via the web so no real lose there. Some type of Vocals would have been nice as well for some Jungle flavour. Some atmos/drone/FX would have really topped off a wonder sample pack.

CONCLUSION

Bladerunner has nailed it with Dread Drum & Bass. In just under 600mb he has delivered the Bladerunner sound to your studio. The highlights for sure a the SUPERB drum breaks and Music hits. Worth the cost of the sample pack alone. Go out and grab it Here
