    What's included

    Drummer behind the scenes

    Dynamic drum hits and loops

    Inspiring drum hits and loops performed on a classic kit by the legendary Abe Laboriel Jr. — Sir Paul McCartney’s touring drummer. Harness a full set of detailed single hits, from punchy kicks to snappy snares, offering complete control across a wide dynamic range — plus inspiring grooves, loops and fills to give your beats that professional touch.

    Elektron Digitone

    Tape-drenched synth textures

    From lo-fi digital grit and playful stabs, plucks and bells through to 80s neon-lit, retro pads, gamer’s nostalgia and woozy, shimmering euphoria… Transform your soundscapes with this vast collection of rich, mind bending textures that come alive as you play — dripping with vintage analog warmth and nostalgia. A living, breathing machine of sonic metamorphosis spanning multiple genres, Tape Synths harnesses the enviable gear and experimental processing techniques of tape artist Blankfor.ms. Cycle through layers of tape and granular processing on each sound, and experiment with integrated sound design FX.

    Emotive pianos, electronics and percussion

    A beautifully intimate toolkit made up of both organic, emotive instruments and shimmering electronic manipulations across 59 presets — designed to add character, texture and beauty to your music. Featuring a characterful prepared piano, a Wurlitzer 200A with effects pedals, atmospheric delays, tempo-synced electronics, dreamy pads, swells and textures. Add rhythm and movement with raw and treated percussive one shots and loops, or for a hint of nostalgia, choose the smoky, romantic tones of the flugelhorn.

    Violinists in AIR Studios

Choose between Close, Tree and Vintage signals, plus 9 essential and extended techniques including Flautando, Half-Section, and Harmonics.


    I really enjoy using the Originals Abe Laboriel Drums! They have a lovely authentic acoustic drum kit sound. When using with my Maschine for finger drumming, the library has an extremely tactile response with amazing dynamic range that mimics a real drum kit very well.

    Gnarly Finger drummer & producer

    These are some of the best drum samples I have heard in a long time! You can hear the attention to detail in the way these samples and loops have been recorded. The loops allow you to get creative and inspired with Abe's legendary feel. A true all round sample masterpiece.

    Josh Devine Drummer & songwriter

    The drum kit samples are incredibly high quality...and the loops are malleable and offer a solid range of options in terms of variety for arrangement. I particularly liked the Hype signal and the EQ and Compress knobs on the loops. The Abe Laboriel Jr. library is perfect for adding world-class drum samples, loops and fills to your tracks.
