99Sounds has announced the release of the follow-up to its most popular free sample pack.
The 99 Drum Samples II pack comprises 110 drum samples, including claps, hi-hats, snares, percussion, and kicks. The samples are useful for various music styles, from Hip Hop and Electronica to Lo-Fi and Synthwave.
The source sounds were captured from analog synthesizers (Moog Minitaur, Moog Micromoog, Behringer Neutron, etc.), various digital synths (including the SID chip), drum machines, and foley recordings. The final drum samples were crafted using a combination of layering, audio processing, resampling, and various other sound design techniques.
Some of the sounds were printed to tape, pitched down, then sampled back to the computer. Others were passed through analog distortion boxes. A couple of sounds are resampled from the Nintendo Game Boy for that lo-fi digital grit.
99 Drum Samples II is available as a pay-what-you-want download. All samples are in 24-bit WAV format.
