Dean (aka ‘Nekro’) wrote in to share a nice collection of acoustic drum samples, recorded a few years ago when Dean was working with Pro Tools HD, using Drumagog & Sound Replacer.
The people whom I have shared them with seem to find them good/usuable and I still use them myself layered with Toontrack’s rompler’s for as ‘real’ a drum sound as possible.
The sample pack includes a total of 777 samples, 16bit/44kHz mono .wav format (132 MB).
There are separate folders for cymbals, hihat, kick, snare, and tom sounds. Most file names include info on the recorded channel — L/R/M(ono), and if you take a close look you should be able to figure out how to use the multi-samples to create sampler patches (none are provided in the download pack, if anyone makes some please share).
Here’s a tune in which Dean is using the samples offered here in combination with Toontrack’s Superior Drummer 2 and EZdrummer, followed by some preview clips for all of the samples included in the pack.
The pack is available as a free download below (Zip archive, 53.9MB)

Many thanks to Dean for sharing these great samples.
