Organic Drum Loops has released a free drum rompler instrument for Windows and Mac.

Available as a VST3 plugin, the Organic Calfskin Kit is a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution to working with multi-track/multi-velocity samples.

Featuring samples by Bill Mead, the instrument comes with a moderately dry sounding setup that offers good punch for modern music styles and minimal sustain for easy mixing.

Since the sound of a drumkit is greatly influenced by the tools that are used to play it, this kit was sampled using three common options, sticks, brushes and mallets – so of course, the OCK includes these options within the plugin settings.

Just as a live drummer would choose a tool based on the song, users of this plugin are given the same options for greater flexibility within their production.

Organic Calfskin Kit features

  • 3 layer multi-velocity samples.
  • 5 mic layout gain and pan settings as well as outputs for routing to aux tracks for more control.
  • Hi-hat openings by BPM.
  • Cymbal choking.
  • Global settings for gain, pitch bend, velocity curve, weirdness (LFO filter) amount, speed and shape.
  • Panic button.

The plugin is a free download to registered users (registration also free).
