Tommy Lee, Alan White, and Jim Keltner, sampled by Reek Havok
That a 30-year-old sample library still stands up is a testament to how well sampling technology works for drums.
On its 30th anniversary, the library has now been imported for re-release into Native Instruments Kontakt sampler, since few people still have an Akai S1000, E-Mu Emulator III (let alone I or II), Roland S-770, or other hardware sampler from the day.
Tommy Lee was the drummer in Mötley Crüe, Alan White played with Yes (among many others), and Jim Keltner played with everyone – the Beatles, for example.
It was recorded and programmed by Reek Havok. That’s actually his name, but rumor has it that it wasn’t the one his parents gave him.
