STRIKES BACK and M.D. Bundle is

Each sample focused in-the-pocket with mastering equalizers and filters
helping prevent muddy low frequency and harsh high frequency buildup

Goldilocks analog processing for character, warmth, and depth
giving your drums a $10k+ signal chain PER CHANNEL pro-studio character

Sources recorded with mastering quality AD convertors
authentically capturing every nuance and detail of these living machines

Samples presented with intentional headroom
minimizing unwelcome distortion and clipping in your DAW or drum sampler

Each sample precision hand-edited
for perfect attacks and smooth decays

OCD level of labeling and sub-categorization
making sounds easy to find in the moment of inspiration

A wide variety and balanced spectrum of percussion
ranging from the familiar classics to the fresh and experimental timbres of tomorrow

LEAN. All meat, no filler
Over 18,000 samples were recorded and only the best-of-the-best samples remain in the collection.

30-Day Trial Policy

The best way for you to experience the DMDSB + DMDMD Bundle is to use the collection in it's entirety. That way you can acquire a true feel of how these sounds integrate with your vision. I also believe in treating others the way I would like to be treated, extending trust and honor as the standard. That is why I am willing to offer a 30-day no-questions-asked return policy. If at any time within that period you feel it's not 100% working out, please, email me and request a refund. No harm, no foul, easy. (tonebldr at gmail)

In return I also desire to be treated with trust and honor, so I expect you to delete the content and always keep it private. If not for me, my family, or the 965 other users, do it entirely for selfish reasons and keep it for yourself. Who wants to wear the same thing as everyone else everyday? Not me and surely not you. I'm not down with the Khaki uniform. The DMDSB + DMDMD Bundle is a limited-edition offering, going out worldwide to people in all arenas. Your slice of the pond should be virtually clone-free.

To Caroline, my little monkey. This is for you. I'll tell you about it some day when you can understand : )

I humbly thank The Lord, creator of our universe and everything within for allowing me to play in your sandbox. Without ears, air, electricity, or physical matter, none of this would matter. I am grateful for your grace granting me strength, inspiration, and encouragement.
