Ducking And Pumping

Here's the press release...
Duck & Pump Electro House is a collection of loops and samples with it's focus on the Ducking effect. A four on the floor kick drum was used in conjunction with side chaining compression to trigger the effect. Producers can simply drop these Basses and Synths over a kick drum to get an instant groove.
Sound folders include Ducking Basses, Ducking Pads, Ducking Synths, Drums, Mixed Beats, Hi Hats, Kicks, Snares, Percussion, Crashes, Transition SFX, Uplifting SFX, Unprocessed Synths, Fidgets, Unprocessed Basses, Club FX, and Vocal Bits. This collection also includes those pristine drum sounds you hear in all of the latest charting Electro House and Deep House tunes. Pristine kicks, snappy Snares, tight Hi Hats, and swooshing Crash effects.
The most popular result of Ducking is done by using a kick drum and a bassline. Ducking and side chaining are nothing new. This technique has been used in recordings for decades. Most of the time it is very subtle but a more exaggerated version of this effect has recently become more popular in Dance music. Benny Benassi and Daft Punk were some of the first producers to use this effect in such a way to get that pumping bass effect. Now artists like Daft Punk, Deadmau5, and John Dahlback have bring it to another level. PLP has captured this sound and packaged it all up into one fat collection of loops and samples.
381 Loops and 40 Drum One Shots. Recorded in various keys at 120 BPMs. 24 bit 44.1kHz Stereo.
