Ableton has introduced the Recording Hybrid Kit, a free multi-sampled, multi-velocity Yamaha drumset by Drumdrops.
The drums that comprise Recording Hybrid Kit were specially selected from several different Yamaha drumsets in order to provide a well-balanced and versatile Drum Racks. The individual drum voices were sampled at multiple velocities and are available in up to 16 steps for each articulation.
Recording Hybrid Kit works well at various tuning pitches, and its big size and its classic Ludwig 402 snare sound makes it especially suitable for rock and pop.
The kit is a free download at Ableton.
