Available for download, City of Drums and Beats from FXpansion is a sample pack with corresponding presets intended for use with Geist, Geist2, and GURU—though its sounds can be used with any sample engine supporting 24-bit/44.1 kHz WAV, AIFF, and RX2 files. City of Drums and Beats provides drum samples and loops suitable for any urban genre.
Should you choose to use these samples in Geist or Geist2, you'll find five Geist presets, separated into 30 drum kits (kick/snare/hi-hat/other) and 16 menu kits (kicks and snares/hits). With GURU, you'll be able to utilize 11 loop kits. In addition, you'll have access to 63 REX loops and three pattern banks. Should you use this library with another sample engine, you'll find 440 drum hits to play with, all of them in WAV format. As this is a sample library, it's compatible with Mac and PC platforms.
