Review: Goldbaby XRB Sample Pack

Goldbaby Productions XRB Sample Pack

Goldbaby’s XRB was first released for iZotope iDrum, then as a ReFill, and now after many user requests it’s also available as a sample pack.

These drum samples were lovingly created using… Vintage drum machines, Acoustic Drum Kits and Perc, Lo-Fi gear such as the SK1 and VL1, Toy Percussion… a whole studio full of gear!

The XRB Sample Pack Contains

  • 2021 x 24bit Samples.
  • 375 x Kicks, 284 x Snares, 377 x HH, 411 x Perc, 60 x Toms, 64 x Claps, 27 x Rims, 64 x Cymbals, 130 x FX, 235 x FX Perc.
  • Also included is 278 Rex files taken from the Refill version of XRB.

The XRB Sample Pack costs $33 USD.

So what do I think?

If you’ve read any of my previous reviews of Goldbaby’s products you won’t be surprised I’m giving this one the “thumbs up” as well. XRB includes a large variety of drum sounds and for the lazy amongst us you don’t even have to put in any effort to get some cool grooves with the included REX files.

I don’t think I really NEED any more drum samples, but hey… when they’re high quality original samples like these there’s just always room for more!

I’m in complete agreement with you, Ronnie. I’m lousy with drum samples these days. But I’ve long been eying Gold Baby. I’ve always been put off by the fact that I don’t really use any of the software he primarily programs for. No Guru, no Reason, no iDrum. Sure, I could just buy the waves, but it takes me so long to get around to mapping samples that it wasn’t high on my list. Now that I have an MPC it’s more appealing, but I still have too much I haven’t touched. But this. Yep, this fits how I work.… Read more »
