30 New Free Drum Kits for FL Studio FPC

Fpc_download_manager

Image-Line has released 30 free new drum kit's for FL Studio's FPC drum synth. As shown in above illustration, use the built-in download manager to access the kits.

According to Image Line:
"The "real" drums were recorded in as non-invasive a way as possible. No EQ, no compression, nothing but a drum and a microphone (or two). This was done so that the end user could modify the sound of each drum to his or her liking. They were recorded using the best mic for each specific drum. So the range of microphones used were pretty big. AKG C1000's, Octava MK-012's, and Shure PG81's were used as overheads. AKG D112, Shure Beta 52 and Sennheiser MD421MKII's were used for Kicks and Low toms. Sennheiser MD421MKII's, Shure Beta 98DS's, Sure SM57's and Sennheiser e604's were used on toms. A Shure SM57, Rode NT1a, and a and a Shure Beta98DS."
