If you start your journey in the big world of music production and beat making, you probably feel a bit lost. Even if you already learned how to handle somehow your DAW, you quickly feel disappointed by the onboard drum and instrument sounds that come along with it. A huge step forward is to get better, and high-quality drum sounds that make your speakers bouncing and take your hip-hop, r&b or urban pop beat/production to the next level. Those genres are extremely beat-focused, so the drum sounds have a significant role in the sound design of the track.
