Analogue Drums DeadBeat KONTAKT DVDR
DeadBeat is a dampened kit in a 60s/70s pop style. Based around a 3-ply '70s Ludwig kit with a selection of vintage Zildjian cymbals, Ludwig and Premier snares. Deadbeat will do the Abbey Road tea-towel thing, and is also great for dry Funk and RnB, contemporary Folk and Indie, Pop, and a whole lot more.

Three snares, two separate pairs of toms (dead, and buried) for two different levels of dampening, and three kick drum options give you a heap of options for finding the tones that work best for your track.

The kit was sampled at The Manor through a selection of fine vintage and modern recording pieces, finished with an outboard singal chain.

Drumdrops 1970s Rogers Big R Dub Kit KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX Drumdrops 1970s Rogers Big R Dub Kit KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX
The 1970s Rogers Big R Dub Kit is the kit that we used to record Drumdrops in Dub Volume 3 and Drumdrops in Ska. This is the ultimate sounding dub kit. It is available to purchase in three different packs and is a must for anyone wanting an authentic dub drum sound. The kit was sampled in The Ironworks, a vintage tracking studio in Brighton, UK that has been used by Horseman, Little Roy, Prince Fatty amongst others. The acoustics of the live room has been masterminded by the ex-Olympic and Radio Caroline tech Mike Craig and it provides a great controlled sound for a Dub kit.

The drum kit was played by legendary and Drumdrops resident reggae drummer Horseman. Drumdrops head honcho Mike Pelanconi was on the recording duties making sure we came up with the best sounding dub kit possible. If you are looking for dub kit samples then this is the best place to start.

This kit can currently be purchased in seven different packs.

The Kontakt 5 Pack comes with the Drumdrops Kontakt Instrument for exclusive use in Native Instruments Kontakt version 5. The interface comes with it's own mixer section giving you control over the individual drum tracks and convolution reverbs that we have included. Each channel has an EQ and Transient Master. You can change the velocity curves of the drums and there is a randomisation feature to add subtle changes to make the drums even more realistic.The Kontakt pack comes with 50 separate articulations, 16 velocity steps and includes 6 round robins totalling 5352 drum samples. We have also focused on the compatiability with Roland V-Drums and the Yamaha DTX900 making sure it plays nicely with these setups.

The BFD Pack is a sampler pack that can be loaded into BFD3, BFD Eco or BFD2. The BFD pack contains almost the same samples that our Kontakt 5 Pack offers, meaning that BFD users can enjoy the same realism and quality that our Kontakt 5 users enjoy. The kit has been recorded in up to 80 velocity steps. You have full control over the microphones that were used to record this kit and once loaded into BFD you can enjoy all the same features that you would expect from any other BFD kit. Once the kit has been recognized by BFD, just simply select your desired kit piece from the list in the same way that you would load any other drum in BFD. The pack also comes with 359 4-bar dub loops.

The Multi-Velocity pack provides up to 16 velocity steps of each articulation. The samples are a mix of the close mic and room mics. This pack comes with patches for Battery 3, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Renoise, Reason Refills and the free sampler TX16Wx. It can also be used with any drum machine or sampler that reads WAV files. We have also included MIDI Maps for a lot of the popular defaults. This pack also includes over 600 MIDI loops including 179 dub loops. This pack is a great choice for those who want the multiple velocity articulations but do not use Kontakt 5. 

The Single Hits pack is similar to the multi-velocity pack but provides three velocities of each articulation. This pack also includes patches for Battery 3, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Renoise and Reason Refills but if you run any legacy drum machines such as Akai MPC60s this pack may be ideal as we include 16 bit and 24 bit WAV samples.

The Drum Replacement pack is our sample replacement pack. This pack comes with three different patches - Slate Trigger V2, Drumagog V5 & V4 and DrumXchanger. Each patch uses different amounts of samples depending on the capability of the software. If you run any of these pieces of software then this pack is for you.

The All Samples pack contains the Multi-Velocity Pack, the Singles Hits Pack, the Drum Replacement Pack and most of the seperate mic samples from the Kontakt 5 Pack. This pack gives you ultimate flexibility, all the patches we create and three different packs of samples. 

The One Shot Sample pack is our cheapest pack and a great pack for those who either just need one sample from each articulation (drum machine users) and no patches or for customers who want to check out the sound of this kit before purchasing any of the more expensive packs. Ask us nicely and we will knock the price of this pack off other packs for this kit if you upgrade. 

Whichever pack you choose you can be reassured that is has the Drumdrops quality stamped all over it. Explore more of these pages and listen to our sample
grooves to hear the different packs in action and work out which one is best for you. If you want Dub Reggae drum sounds you have to start with a Dub Reggae kit.


ARIA Sounds Surdos And Snares KONTAKT DVDR ARIA Sounds Surdos And Snares KONTAKT DVDR
The latest installment in our percussion section boasts over 6GB of sample data, with maxed out (127) dynamic layers for full realism, and an extremely controllable sound and soundscape with various techniques. Epic Drums VST Library for Kontakt 4 (Full Version) and above - consisting of an ensemble of eight separately playable, differently pitched toms.

ARIA Sounds are proud to present "Surdos & Snares", a percussion ensemble consisting of three snares and three surdo drums, all placed in the displayed formation (screenshot below), and reproduced faithfully, so you can play these drums, and they will sound in these positions.

We have absolutely pushed the variation and authenticity to the limit with this library. There are 127 dynamic layers per hit/technique/key in these drums, which provides even more benefits than the obvious lack of repetition, or the dreaded "machine-gun effect".

Say you record/play in a performance with this instrument, and then possibly go into the MIDI data and tweak a few hits' dynamics to get the performance how you want it... and then decide the general feel needs to be either louder or quieter.

As there is a smooth gradient from bottom to top in terms of dynamic layers, dragging the entire velocity data of the track up and down will completely transform the performance, as opposed to just moving the MIDI data through a few dynamic layers, and primarily relying on simply lowering and raising the volume of certain samples. In our demo videos, you can see this in action.

The instrument is also compatible with both version 4 and 5 of Kontakt (the full version, not the free Kontakt Player - the paid version of Kontakt only), and comes with a close mic position, and main stage mic position.

Each drum has been played with varied techniques, including soft mallets, sticks, rims, hands, different brushes.

Click each of the drum icons on the interface to load and unload that particular drum. Unloaded drums will appear on the keyboard interface as black, and loaded drums with active samples will be shown as blue keys.

Tonehammer Alien Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Alien Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Alien Drum (aka Hang Drum – trademarked by Pan Art) is a unique tone based percussion instrument, which is almost impossible to come by, since there is only one maker in the world and less than 1000 drums in circulation. The instrument has a soft, sorrowful, melancholic tone to it and is a perfect companion for emotional or ambient type of scores. The Tonehammer Alien Drum is unique in the sense it was recorded at an average of 15 velocity layers and with 10 round-robin repetitions pr. layer/note, so you will never experience any repetition in the articulation.

We used custom microphone set-ups to capture the delicate resonance both inside and outside the drum, since the resonance defines the true sound of the drum. Additionally we sampled multiple playing techniques with fingers, palm, slaps, hand brushing and the back-side of the drum, which has the similar properties to the Udu. Multiple versions of all multis allow for a variety of ways to switch or fade between articulations while playing.

Tonehammer Alien Drum Facts:
Single finger tap on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin 
Single finger mute on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin
Fingertip ping on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin
Palm slap on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin
Sound Hole thumps: 12 velocity layers each, 10x round-robin
Sound Hole edge pings: 8 velocity layers each, 10x round-robin 
Hand Brushes included in finger tap patches: 3 styles, 5-9 velocity layers each, 10x round-robin

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.

Suspended Cymbals is a sample library for Kontakt 4 and above that features 5 premium crash cymbals with 5 articulations each, including:

Sustains.
Bells.
Side hits.
Modwheel controlled rolls.
Effects.

Recorded with 3 microphone positions, 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin. All samples normalized to 0db, resulting in 128 volume steps, giving a much natural sound and feel.

The best feature on the library is being able to control the roll intensity with the modwheel. No more time-fixed samples which are very hard to sync with your track. With Suspended Cymbals you can control or play the rolls yourself.

On the mixer section you can mix each microphone position and apply convolution reverb with any of the 30 provided impulses, highpass and lowpass filters and envelope with attack, hold and decay.
On the settings section you can control the volume of each articuation separately, round robin repetitions, dynamic range, muffling time, velocity curve and voicing.

The cymbals: Zildjian Custom Session Crash 16", Zildjian Avedis Custom 18", Zildjian Dark Medium Thin 18", Paiste Masters Dark Crash 18" and Istanbul Mehmet Traditional 18".
We want this library to become the go-to for suspended cymbals, you'll find everything you need. It won't go any better than this!
