Wave Alchemy releases free DRM Drums sample pack

Wave Alchemy DRM Drums

Wave Alchemy has released DRM Drums, a free sample pack featuring over 380 drum samples from a vintage Vermona DRM drum machine.

All samples have been lovingly recorded through an API pre-amp with every sound boasting eight round robin variations and four accent (velocity) layers!

This sample library is 100% free! All you have to do is login to gain access to the download link!

Original vintage DRM drum machines are quite hard to come by; they were originally manufactured by Vermona in 1986 and appear to be influenced by the iconic 606 and 808 drum machines. Although DRM is an abbreviation for ‘Digital Rhythm Machine’, the sound generation is in fact fully analogue! 12 analogue drum voices are available: kick drum, 3 toms, 2 snares, 2 hi-hats, claves, cowbell, cymbal and a very interesting sounding analogue clap…

DRM Drums contains fully pre-mapped drum kit patches for use with Kontakt 5 and Battery 3. Each kit makes extensive use of multiple velocity layers, round robin sample playback and choke groups to create a truly expressive sample instrument.

All 384 drum samples are included as raw 24-bit wav files, carefully trimmed and labelled, making it easy for those who want to build their own drum kits.

The download is free to Wave Alchemy users (registration is free).

The Groove Criminals are proud to release their new range of compact, low cost but high quality sample packs under the Groove Criminals Essentials banner. Designed to be an affordable way of building up a set of go-to sounds and samples for a wide range of music productions.

Groove Criminals Essentials packs

Groove Criminals Essentials Analogue Synth FX
  • Analogue Synth FX – A collection of 100% analogue synth FX all sourced from the Groove Criminals’ stash of analogue synths, both new and vintage. The 112 24-bit WAV samples include sweeps, drops, risers, one-off hits and just plain fat, bubbly analogue goodness to top off any track.

    Synths used to make this pack include the Roland SH101, Moog Little Phatty, Waldorf Pulse, Artura Minibrute, Roland SH09, Yamaha CS5, the Korg Monotron series and Synare 3. Strictly analogue processing comes courtesy of the Electrix Filter Factory, Vermona filters and a fully stocked Moog Moogerfooger rig.

Groove Criminals Essentials Analogue Synth Percussion
  • Analogue Synth Percussion – A collection of percussive hits all created from an enviable stack of analogue drum synths. From deep booms and fat bleeps to sharp twangs and metallic tones, these 120 24- bit WAV hits will help to inject some analogue goodness alongside more traditional drum sounds.

    The 100% analogue sound sources used to create this versatile sample pack include a Vermona DRM1 Mk3, JoMox Air Base 99, Synare 3, Amdek PCK-100 percussion synth, Artura Minibrute, Roland SH09 and Yamaha CS5.

The sample packs are available to purchase at Sounds To Sample for £5 GBP each.

Liveschool free Ableton Live drum racks

Liveschool has released a number of free drum rack packs for Ableton Live.

Fairchild 808
  • Fairchild 808 — The samples were recorded by manager of Studios 301 and Ableton Certified Trainer Anthony Garvin as we were preparing for our next focus course on Mixing and Mastering. They were recorded from an original TR-808 through one of 301′s custom built DI boxes, and then patched through the Fairchild 670 via the SSL K-Series console, finally being captured into Ableton Live by an Apogee Rosetta 200 ADC. Multiple passes of some of the samples where made to include variations on each element, such as a short punchy kick, and the long-decay sub type kick.
Vermona DRM1 MKIII
  • Vermona DRM1 MKIII — Using the per-sound outputs on the Vermona, each sample was passed through a series of outboard gear suited to that sound. As with our 808 Drum Rack, some these samples were recorded via Studios 301′s very rare (and very valuable) Fairchild 670 compressor. Going beyond the Fairchild this time, we took advantage of more of 301′s outboard gear, and customised the signal chain for each new sound.
Korg Volca Beats
  • Korg Volca Beats — Over in Studio 2 at Studios 301, the samples were recorded direct from the Korg Volca Beats into an API 512c Lunchbox pre-amp, then through a channel of the SSL 9000k console for some slight compression and EQ, before being captured back in to Ableton Live with a Apogee Rossetta 200 ADC. It might be a consumer priced drum machine, but it was amongst some giants (with giant price tags) over at 301. It was pretty surreal hearing the Volca’s meaty analog kick booming through the Genelec 1039A main monitors in Studio 2.

The racks are available to download from Liveschool at no cost.
