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).
