DSK mini DrumZ

DSK Music has released mini DrumZ, a freeware drum sample rompler for Windows PC.

mini DrumZ features the sounds of the following drum machines:

  1. Ace Tone Rhythm Ace, Kakehashi’s pre-Roland sound drum machine.
  2. Akai XE8, the 1U rack mount unit with 16-bit drum samples.
  3. Akai XR10, anybody know anything about this one?
  4. Alesis HR-16, one of Alesis’s first drum machines.
  5. Boss DR-55, first drum machine from Roland with the name Boss.
  6. Boss DR-220, typical mid 80’s digital drum sounds.
  7. Fricke MSB512
  8. Kawai R50, 12 bit 32K sampled drums.
  9. Korg DDD-1, came with 18 short PCM samples.
  10. Korg DDM110, lo-fi and crunchy sounding.
  11. Mattel SynSonic, from the people who brought you Barbie…
  12. MXR 185, the machine where it’s hard to tell rim from snare.
  13. Roland CR-78, the 1978 drum machine that used analog drum voices.
  14. Roland TR-606, originally designed to be used with the Roland TB-303.
  15. Roland TR-727, latin drum kit version of the TR-707.
  16. Roland TR-808, originally manufactured for use as a tool for studio musicians to create demos.
  17. Roland TR-909, partially analog, partially sample-based drum machine.
  18. SCI DrumTraks, Sequential’s first digital drum machine.
  19. SCI Tom, similar to the DrumTraks but more advanced.

The concept of this plugin – to reproduce the drum sounds of various well known drum machines – is something that I wished someone would do for a long time. For the most part I think this has been done relatively well, but there are some elements of this plug that perhaps fall short of the mark. The sounds are accurate, but problematic. There is no consistency of volume between them, and even differences in volume between various sounds for the same machine. This is pretty irritating, as you can’t vary the volume of individual drums, so the volume levels… Read more »

I actually liked DSK’S original drum machine plug from a while back. It had a really phat sound and a good choice of samples and sound shaping features. It would be nice if he did a remake of it, with more drum samples than the original and added user sample folders to put your own samples in. I agree with most of your comments about mini Drumz.One thing that stood out IMO is,It seemed to have some stereo separation fx applied to every sound.At the very least,there should be a master tune feature.I think the images of the machines are… Read more »

Yep the beauty is in its simplicity: conceptually great, implements ok, and agree with the above comments. Just a little extra effort would push this freebie vst into legendary status :)

All downloads do not work at the moment. They just take you to “Sonalksis announces Sonalksis Mastering Suite” page.

Please get this fixed… so I can try out the new drumz plugin. Thanks!

Look at the link for any downloads on this site; it should look something like this: http://rekkerd.org/?dl=548

Apparently, it should really be: http://rekkerd.org/download?dl=548 (notice the ‘download’ right before the ‘?’)

Once I added that ‘download’ text to each link after clicking on it, it properly downloaded the file(s).

C-1 is a bass drum, With D-1 being the Snare, and F-1 being the hi-hat, that is all the sounds I have found apart from a click on E-1.

To install it you need to copy the all of the files from the zip folder into you VST plugins folder- which program ae you running, if it is the PC version of Cubase – like me it will be found in c:program filessteinbergcubase LEVSTplugins

The SE is replaced with whatever version of cubase you are running.

I love this thing. The interface and everything. Super simple and nice.

Does anyone know of a place where I could download MIDI patterns of some of the old drum machines’ preset patterns?

Hey Replicant61 I had your same problem – just download their second version. It’s somewhere on the page, but if you can’t find it search DSK Mini DRUMZ 2. :)

– No matter what, stay cruNK.

Pretty good for free but the mapping kinda kills it for me. Every other drum VSTI has the kick on ‘C’ and the snare on ‘D’ (alternate snare or clap ‘C#’) while with all of DSK’s software the kick is usually on ‘E’ though sometimes on ‘D’.

Have you thought of adding a transpose function to it? What DAW are you using?

Please answer these questions!
Which of the 808/909 sounds are analog?
Is the quality of the 808/909 samples equal to 24 bit and 48khz at least?
Complete analog and seperate outputs/volumes are needed!
