HQ Breakbeats Converted For Mono Samplers

Hi there Trackers!

Aisjam was nice enough to share some breaks with us all so I thought I would do the same.

Here is a folder of super high quality breakbeats converted to 16BIT mono, 44.1kHz for use in the Tracker, Disting, Digitakt or whatever other hardware sampler you like.

Big shout outs to Moldover who gave us the original folder. I just re-encoded them in mono. Moldover is the OG.

Hi, @thephatconductor - I downloaded these and confirmed they are great. Thanks for putting in the work. And thanks for turning me on to Moldover.

Being pretty new to sample-based song-making, I find it helpful to know what BPM and key I’m working with so I did some additional work on them. Hope you don’t mind.

I downloaded the entire directory into Traktor which is what I used to quickly get BPM and key. Their open key notation is explained here.

The new file names now have this format:

  • Track Name BPM Key Track Length
    where
  • Track name is the original track name
  • BPM format is 121.3 converted to 121_3
  • Key format is open notation, e.g. 9m, 3d etc.
  • Track length format is mm_ss, eg. 00_09 which would be 9 seconds

Notes:

  • I had a challenge getting the file names to export cleanly but for the most part, they should match. You might want to quality-check that.
  • I haven’t altered the audio at all, just the file names.
  • Traktor is usually pretty good with BPM and Key detection but being that these are pretty short files I wonder if that assumption holds. I don’t have a way of verifying the quality of their interpretation.

Very cool! I had some ideas about making processed versions as well, so I’ll start from yours when I do it :smiley:
