Can anyone recommend some great drum kit samples?

Post by dominicw78 » Fri Jan 23, 2009 5:32 pm

Looking for a collection of drum hits organised into kits that I can throw into my own drum racks. Mainly interested in the hi hats samples. Kits with at least 6 or more hi hat samples so I can sequence my own realistic drum lines that sound like they are all from the one kit. I´m not after a vst drum program just the samples. Reggae hats to Disco, Massive attack, trip hop etc, nice big clean samples with long open hats and various hits, pedals etc.

Can anyone recommend where I might be able to find them?

Do you have samples currently?

You could tweak those to make entirely new kits, almost. Change the pitch of your hats, by whole tones and semi-tones, and smaller smidges if possible. Change sample start and end points too.
If you can imagine it, it can happen...

go to www.freesound.org

Sign up

search for hihats

I got 137 hits....

Or the torrents are also good for(illicit) drum sample packs. Artytorrents has really comprehensive packs. Use them at your own risk however, those are commercial sample CD´s, so be careful not to make any money off of your creations!(or purchase the CD if you make it big)...

if you have 80$ in your pocket, just buy a vengeance CD

- ultimate beats vol 1 (great)

- vengeance electro essentials...

sounds really great (you've got also some loops, synths in the package)

cheers

Buy 2nd hand records , and sample from them, search for the perfect ones
Samples from ready-made sample Cd's will make you sound like anyone else, but if that's your aim?
