99Sounds has released 99 Drum Samples – a free collection of electronic and acoustic drum hits, which have been built from scratch and processed with internal and external audio gear.
Here’s an audio preview:
Here’s what 99Sounds has to say about the sample library:
The sounds were recorded from various analogue and digital sources and processed with various on-board effects and external gear. My favorite part of the pack are the drum machine sounds and acoustic drum hits which I’ve recorded to a cassette tape in order to enhance them with a bit of punch and grit. Some of the included drum hits were also passed through an old tape delay unit, resulting in a warm organic sound.
The pack also includes a selection of modern electronic drum samples, some acoustic drums (captured with my trusty Edirol R-09 recorder) and a set of drums which were synthesized with various analogue and digital instruments (including the Korg Electribe ER-1 drum machine and the Lell UDS analogue drum generator). I’ve also included a small set of lo-fi drums which were recorded from various toy instruments such as the Yamaha DD-5.
The library contains 99 individual drum samples in 24-bit WAV format. The samples have been carefully edited, trimmed and normalized to -0.1 dB (expect for some of the cymbal hits which are peaking around -3 dB).
It’s a free download from the 99Sounds site.
