Mode Audio have released Machine Attacks, a new collection of one shot drum samples suitable for house, electro, tech, glitch hop, hip hop, r&b and much more.

Machine Attacks contains a selection of 238 drum samples and it comes in various formats like WAV, FL Studio DirectWave patches, Maschine kits, Ableton Drum Racks, Reason Kong patches and Logic EXS24 instruments. This is a big plus for the guys at Mode Audio, offering so many download formats means respect for their customers and demonstrates their professionalism.

The FL Studio version features 238 WAV drum hits, 12 DirectWave patches and 5 Mixer Presets for drum processing! Each DirectWave patch represent a drum kit with all necessary kicks, snares, hats and percussions added. The DW versions is perfect for understanding the author’s vision about his sample pack, also being distributed in small kits, you will have quick access to the sounds and you’ll save time.

With a bonus of 5 professional mixer presets, Machine Attacks turns into a complete tool for ascending producers. Drop the preset into the drums channel and experiment a new sound: gritty drums, full drums, crunchy drums etc.

The WAV folder is split into 5 main folders:

  • Claps – 25 samples
  • Hi Hats – 47 samples:
    • Closed Hats – 28 samples
    • Open Hats – 19 samples
  • Kicks – 63 samples
  • Percussions – 43 samples:
    • Analog Bells – 2 samples
    • Blips – 4 samples
    • Floor Toms – 2 samples
    • Glass Taps – 3 samples
    • High Toms – 4 samples
    • Metal Blips – 2 samples
    • Mid Toms – 4 samples
    • Shakers – 10 samples
    • Snaps – 3 samples
    • Taps – 3 samples
    • Timbales – 3 samples
    • Woodblocks – 3 samples
  • Snares – 60 samples

The kicks are my favourites, they really shine with the warm, full and analog feel; I have to mention too the percussion folder with its rich content, the beautifully sculpted snares and the claps – simply the best ones I reviewed recently.

All sounds are recorded in 24 Bit quality using high end gear, they are royalty free and ready to use in every sampler or digital audio workstation. I recommend Machine Attacks for all those who are looking for originality, for something different. Best use in electro, electronica, electro pop and minimal music productions. FL Studio users have the chance to get also the DirectWave patches and 5 pro mixer presets- two cool additions giving the opportunity for more and more great experiments.

Machine Attacks is available for only £13.50 (regular price is £18) on Mode Audio. They are running the 25% off site launch sale on all sample packs (it ends on Sunday the 19th of January), you can grab all loops, samples, synth presets & field recordings packs at a bargain price!
