The Code: Urban DNA Kits is the first in a series of SampleTank collections created in partnership with sound designer and producer Donald “Don P” Johnson. Recapturing the DNA that runs through urban music, The Code Volume 1: Urban DNA Kits will become your go-to source for drum sounds that have inspired new dances, trends and the hottest lyrical bars.
The Code Volume 1: Urban DNA Kits covers the current styles of trap, urban R&B, hip hop, and underground trap including the production/musical styles of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, NBA YoungBoy, Roddy Ricch, Post Malone and more. The collection includes tons of haunting melodies, sexy progressions, cracking drums, huge 808s and bass, custom unique vocal samples and floating melodies that are radio-ready right now.
Listen to audio demos
Overall you get 30 construction kits, each provided with two playback algorithms (standard resample for the best audio quality and PSTS from the S.T.R.E.T.C.H engine to sync to the host tempo) for a total of 60 presets. Each kit preset uses the 8 SampleTank macro knobs for instant control of separate HP and LP Filters, a mastering EQ, FET compression and studio plate reverb along with a third resonant LP Filter on the mod wheel for real-time performance.
Each construction kit includes the full mix, music mix and drum mix along with all the individual stems from the multitrack production. You’ll find the full mix on C1, the drum stem on C# and the “music stem” (everything but the drums) on D1. Then you have all of the individual tracks as stems on the remaining notes going up the keyboard chromatically. Starting with kick, then snare, then the next drum and percussion instruments followed by the bass, and finally all the additional pitched stems. This gives you the control you need to build your own songs using just some of the stems from the construction kit, and dropping loops in and out as you please for instant arrangements.
The Code Volume 1: Urban DNA Kits is custom-tailored to work perfectly with SampleTank, with its full effects available on the Effects panel for further tone-shaping and customization. All parts are separated and include key and tempo so you can easily mix and match for almost unlimited combinations. When you need that perfect drum sample, 808, synth sound or hit melody, this will be the product you turn to.
There are no throwaway or B/C list sounds in The Code Volume 1: Urban DNA Kits. This is the A-List content hand-picked from a much larger batch of content to ensure you get the best. All the sounds were processed through over 1 million dollars of outboard gear to give you a sonically superior product. Industry-leading converters, outboard FX, filters and processors were used to make this product one of a kind.
Whether you are a producer, beat maker, composer, indie filmmaker, content creator or songwriter, The Code Volume 1: Urban DNA Kits will bring your content to life musically. It is a must-have in your sound, loop and audio arsenal.
