Review: Goldbaby XRB Sample Pack

Goldbaby Productions XRB Sample Pack

Goldbaby’s XRB was first released for iZotope iDrum, then as a ReFill, and now after many user requests it’s also available as a sample pack.

These drum samples were lovingly created using… Vintage drum machines, Acoustic Drum Kits and Perc, Lo-Fi gear such as the SK1 and VL1, Toy Percussion… a whole studio full of gear!

The XRB Sample Pack Contains

  • 2021 x 24bit Samples.
  • 375 x Kicks, 284 x Snares, 377 x HH, 411 x Perc, 60 x Toms, 64 x Claps, 27 x Rims, 64 x Cymbals, 130 x FX, 235 x FX Perc.
  • Also included is 278 Rex files taken from the Refill version of XRB.

The XRB Sample Pack costs $33 USD.

So what do I think?

If you’ve read any of my previous reviews of Goldbaby’s products you won’t be surprised I’m giving this one the “thumbs up” as well. XRB includes a large variety of drum sounds and for the lazy amongst us you don’t even have to put in any effort to get some cool grooves with the included REX files.

I don’t think I really NEED any more drum samples, but hey… when they’re high quality original samples like these there’s just always room for more!

  • I’m in complete agreement with you, Ronnie. I’m lousy with drum samples these days. But I’ve long been eying Gold Baby. I’ve always been put off by the fact that I don’t really use any of the software he primarily programs for. No Guru, no Reason, no iDrum. Sure, I could just buy the waves, but it takes me so long to get around to mapping samples that it wasn’t high on my list. Now that I have an MPC it’s more appealing, but I still have too much I haven’t touched. But this. Yep, this fits how I work. As you say, the lazy among us.
