Beautiful Darabuka Drum Library V.1.1 Lite MiDi EXS24 KONTAKT Beautiful Darabuka Drum Library V.1.1 Lite MiDi EXS24 KONTAKT
This is a sample library of a beautiful Darabuka that I’ve received as a gift and thought it would make a great addition to use in my projects, especially since I’ve sampled certain articulations that I mostly use. This Darabuka was recorded with 4 dynamic layers per articulation and with 2 dynamic layers for the rolls. I haven’t recorded any RRs, but you’ll find that there are enough articulations and velocity layers to create a fairly realistic performance with it.

The Darabuka was captured in mono using the AKG 420 Perception microphone, which really brought out the clarity of the instrument while retaining the body. I’ve included a MIDI file performance using the instrument, which will give you an idea of how to use the instrument.

I’ll be further expanding on this instrument in the future by recording lots of Round Robins than I originally did, more articulations, and a couple more mic positions. In the meantime, please enjoy using this simple but articulate instrument!

Technical Specifications

4 Dynamic Layers per Main Articulation & 2 Dynamic Layers per Roll & Hit
Contains 12 samples in 44.1 / 24 bit Mono WAV & NCW lossless compression format
Ivy Audio Scott Drums KONTAKT Ivy Audio Scott Drums KONTAKT
Scott Drums is Ivy Audio's first foray into the world of percussion sampling. We took a medium sized drum kit, miced every piece individually with high quality microphones, and recorded five round robins and 8 dynamic levels across the board. The library includes everything from snare rolls to stick clicks to cymbal scrapes, with built in effects on every mic position and an advanced "dry mix" mode for a super dry and bleed-free sound.

For help with downloads, please refer to the FAQ.

If you like the library, please donate! Your donations pay for performers, hosting, and the continued development of detailed, high quality libraries.

Deeply sampled

We recorded many dynamic levels and round robins for every piece of the kit. There are multiple snare articulations, short and fast release samples on the cymbals, open, half, and closed samples on the hihat, plus a few bonus articulations like cymbal scrapes and stick clicks.

Pristine studio recording

Scott Drums was recorded in a world class studio through 11 high quality microphones, resulting in a clean sounding kit that can be tuned to any genre and mix using the built in effects.

Intuitive UI

The library includes a powerful UI with per-channel routing, EQ, stereo width, compression, and transient processor, as well as a "dry mix" mode for a super punchy, bleed-free sound.

Disclaimer:
While this library is provided free of charge, public redistribution of the library is prohibited. This is NOT a Kontakt player library, and requires a full version of Kontakt to run.
MPC-Samples The 60s Funk Kit MULTiFORMAT MPC-Samples The 60s Funk Kit MULTiFORMAT
Voted as one of the "Best Drum Kits of 2013" by BBoyTechReport.com, 'The 60s Funk Kit' is a multisampled vintage drum kit recorded direct to analogue tape that perfectly captures the unique sound and vibe of the great funk records from the 60's and early 70's, laid out in ready-made drum kits for all MPC models, JJOS and Maschine!

Inspired by the kits used by legendary drummers such as Clyde Stubblefield, Jabo Starks and Zigaboo Modeliste and built around a 1960s Gretsch Round Badge kick drum and a Ludwig Black Beauty snare, it's packed with a traditional gritty tone full of the warmth and character you’d expect to hear from classic vintage drum recordings.

Check out the demo - all drums and percussion came from this kit and were entirely sequenced in an MPC1000 using the included MPC finger-drumming kits:

Every instrument in the kit has been recorded by drummer Richard Preston (Tombongo) using 12 unique takes from soft through to hard velocites, giving you a very realistic sounding kit that's perfect for creating your own unique drum performances in an MPC or Maschine. In total there are 192 unique drum and percussion samples covering 16 unique instrument articulations including kick, snare, rim shot, snare drag (a short snare roll), pandero snare (a snare and tambourine skin-to-skin), hi hat (including open and edge), ride (including bell), crash, hi and low toms, claps, tambourine and shaker. Check out the review from Saintjoe from Maschinepacks/Soundsandgear.com

All samples are provided in three formats; 24 bit WAV, 16 bit WAV and legacy MPC SND format, and we’ve also included a number of ready-made MPC programs and Maschine groups, carefully tweaked and optimsed for all MPC models (including JJOS) and Maschine 1.8/2.x that load up intuitively laid out finger-drumming kits:

The Velocity Sensitive Kit - this is the main kit provided for all MPCs and Maschine, where each pad is set up using 'velocity switching', playing back a different velocity 'take' depending on the velocity you hit the pad with.
The Round Robin Kit – made specifically for the MPC Software and MPC5000, this kit uses the 'layer cycle' feature to take advantage of the four unique 'takes' per velocity we've provided for each instrument. Each time you hit a pad it will play back one of these four different instrument timbres, producing very natural sounding hi hat runs and snare rolls.
The JJOSXL ‘Full Monty’ – JJOSXL is the only MPC OS that allows you to combine velocity switching and round robins together on each individual pad, so this kit takes full advantage.
The Low Memory Kit – this kit is more basic and features just a single sample on each pad, giving a much smaller memory footprint, perfect for most legacy MPCs. This one has added velocity-sensitive timbre emulation (V>Att, V>Pitch etc).

Fully Compatible With All MPCs, all JJOS and Maschine

Simply transfer the sounds to your MPC or Maschine, load up a compatible kit program and instantly start recording your own drum performances into your sequencer. Download the detailed User Guide to find out more about how to use the kit in your own songs:

We've recorded this kit very traditionally to capture the natural sound of a 60s drum session, and as such all samples are presented completely raw with absolutely no added effects, no additional EQ and no dynamic processing. Simply great instruments recorded with quality vintage studio gear and laid down directly to 2 inch analogue tape for that unique warmth, tone and colour provided by tape saturation.

The 60s Funk Kit is the must-have drum kit for all MPC & Maschine heads looking to create realistic, vintage sounding drum performances - available exclusively from MPC-Samples.com!
