So what do I think?
I always tell myself that I don’t need more electronic drum sounds (and it’s the truth isn’t it), but since Prime Loops was kind enough to send me a copy of Minimal & Tech House Drums I now have yet another 1,000 samples in my sample library. How will I ever be able to use them all? Well, probably not.
Anwyay, this *is* a great collection of drum sounds. Perhaps not so surprising since the guy behind these samples is none other than Cyberworm. Doesn’t ring a bell? Make sure to check his website Rhythm-lab.com, where he has been offering quality free samples since 2007 (the Vermona DRM1 MKIII samples he released a few weeks ago are top notch).
At just under $20 this library is a regular steal. Certainly when you do need more electronic drum sounds, but perhaps also when you don’t. You can download some free demo sounds from the Minimal Tech & House Drums here (zip).
