Epic Drum Racks Vol. 1 (free drum machine library/drum rack)

This took about a year to build. I wanted to create an easy way to have access to a large amount of useable drum kits with a simple way to browse, re-arrange, layer and edit. It utilizes the concept of 128's, but instead of just having a bunch of random samples thrown into a sampler, all the samples are organized as kits and are instrumentally matched as you scroll through them.

Categories are: Roland machines, Classic drum machines and synths, Machinedrum SPS-1 UW MKII and 8-bit/ circuit bent/ toy.

From the manual:

"Designed as a comprehensive tool to form the basis of percussive sound design, Epic Drum Racks Vol. 1 is a carefully curated and programmed sample-based library containing 4 general sound categories with 16 drum cells each, totaling 64 instrument racks, over 400 kits and nearly 9,000 high quality samples; all housed within a single Ableton Live Drum Rack and assigned to global macro controls. EDR Vol. 1 focuses on the electronic, whereas Vol. 2 will focus on the acoustic."

Hope you get some use out of it. It does utilize Sampler, but if there's demand, I can make a Simpler version pretty easily.

Wow! Thanks! Downloading now. I've been building my own scrollable sounds rack to use with my V Drums. This should be interesting.

Dropbox suspended the link due to excessive downloads. Trying to find a place to re-host it.

I may snag it but looking forward to an acoustic version. are you going to consider an orchestral version too (timpani, bass drum, snares, etc...)? That would be very cool. I'd even donate if it's a very useful one.

Thanks for the kind words!

@darkenedsoul: Indeed, I will be building an orchestral/ world percussion rack in V.2 and will update this thread once it's finished.
