Let the Beats Roll! Here are the Hihats - perfect for your custom-breakbeats

Grab-for-free these authentic-sounding live hihat cymbal samples at dave40.co.uk
To complement Dave's extra-super-funky Kicks, Snares and Rides we have released this mega-hihat sample pack - comprising 63.6 Megabytes of 1,510 individual .wav samples in glorious 44.1khz 16bit quality - each slice carefully hand-edited by Dave to ensure on-the-nail timing and sound quality. As always each .rar archive contains an Emagic Logic Esx24 instrument file with keymaps enabling a quick load into your favourite digital soft-sampler.
A quick note about sample sound-quality:
As many of these lovely cymbal samples are sourced from traditional vinyl LP's and 45's there is a fair amout of record rumble present - as I have wished to preserve the original analogue sound without any digital processing at this end.
This means that it is necessary to remove this sub-sonic noise during the mixing and production process. Simply route the output of your sampler module through a good-quality high-pass filter set to cut-off at around 400hz - this ensures the higher cymbal frequencies are unaltered, whilst filtering the unpleasant low rumbling sound.
A really useful production HP filter is Classic Auto Filter - just download, unzip and add to your VST plug-ins folder - needs a bit of tweaking, but has a nice clean filter algorithm.
