This tune is the culmination of a playtime session with the free Monster Drums VST plugin. After exploring the free kits available (18 at the time of publishing), we settled on Agung’s Futura Kit, which inspired a funky bass line. The rest of the tune was built up around that.
Landed myself a copy of Spitfire Audio’s “BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover” sample pack. Such beautiful, high-fidelity samples! Looperman artist Eendee’s “Scarydrums” loop doesn’t sound frightening at all when partnered with the fanfare tones of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Here’s a tune that starts off with a driving synth loop from Looperman artist Twistedloop, followed closely by a pumpin’ beat by Fanto8BC. Throw in some arps, booms and crashes, and you have a 90s-flavoured song well suited to action video games.
