Subtersonic releases free Remo Doumbek sample pack

Subtersonic Remo Doumbek

Subtersonic has released a free sample pack featuring the sounds of a Remo doumbek percussion instrument.

I am not an expert with this instrument by any means, but I do have experience performing Balkan, Turkish, Persian and Indian music with this drum.

The particular instrument that I sampled was manufactured by Remo. It is more of a utilitarian design, with a solid wood body and a synthetic head. It is more durable than a traditional design, but has a less defined tone.

Doumbek sample pack features

  • Sampled Remo DK-0408-08.
  • 8″ Diameter, synthetic pre-tuned head, wood body.
  • Recorded as dry, 16 bit, mono WAV files, 140 samples total, edited with Audacity.
  • Each sample was recorded with 2 mics: a Shure SM-57 near the head, and a Nady SP-1 near the bell (the opening at the bottom of the drum). Recorded into a Tascam US-1800 interface.

The sample pack is a free download.
