Created through a joint venture between MPCsounds.com and Syntaur Productions, and produced by Kyle Kee (aka, "KeeMaster") of MPCsounds.com, a new hip hop library features radio-ready drum sounds geared toward serious hip hop producers and those who work on this type of records in the industry.

"Our KeeMaster Series of Ensoniq EPS/ASR samples have become a staple in the hip hop world," said Sam Mims, president of Syntaur Productions. "This MPC library is a natural extension from that. We're entering the Akai market with lots of credibility from having served the hip hop market for years, and with Kyle's credentials as a producer/engineer for artists like Juvenile, Ideal, Scarface, Hot Boys, Lil' Troy, South Park Mexican, Yungstar, Lil' Keke, and tons of others."

The MPCsounds library combines Kee's creative sound design techniques with Syntaur's programming standards, resulting in 45 floppy disks of cutting-edge drum sounds. Each three-disk set contains 72 kick drums, 60 snares, and 60 hi-hat and percussion sounds. Selling for $29.95, the disks work on the Akai MPC-3000 and MPC-2000 drum machines, and will also be available soon in Ensoniq EPS/ASR format.
