The Boxer

For Kontakt, Trigger, Wav

Boxer is a punchy alt rocker with an unpretentious direct sound that gets the job done.  A versatile kit with alt-rock, pop and punk written all over it.  A solid kick, toneful toms, and three swappable snares cover plenty of ground, each snare giving the kit a completely different feel. The kit works equally well for laid back grooves or frantic flurries.

Sampling Details

Tracking Notes

The kit was sampled at Sing Sing South studio in Melbourne, Australia, in a mid-sized tracking room, though a vintage Neve desk, with the usual assortment of high end hand-picked mics, and processed with select outboard pieces.

The kit has been mixed with an indy production in mind, with plenty of scope to take the mix further put your stamp on it.
