Best Drum kits in your library? (to those willing to share)
« on: January 09, 2016, 09:01:43 am »
I'm big on drum kits. I love having the right kick, the right snare, the right anything drum kit related. Especially since I'm big on Hiphop/Trap. What would you say is your best drumkit(s)? Me personally, so far, it would have to be the "Evil Needle Drum Kit Vol. 1" & the "BNJMN Drumkit"

anyone willing to share? :)

They literally came out in the past few days but Cymatics just put out two sample packs - one from Jupe and one from Adieu - theyre both full of great drums - adieu's kicks are fantastic imo. And they're both free so I'd recommend grabbing those

I haven't produced a lot of hip hop / trap, but I am impressed with the small sample pack metro boomin released (http://music.razerzone.com/metroboominsampledrumpack/)

It has a strong, tonal 808 kick, some pretty basic trap snares and hats (but nice sounding), and other interesting percussion sounds.

Yeah, Cymatics' stuff is really good. Especially the Walmart percussion pack, I thought that was really cool. If you're looking for hip hop and trap kits the Film Noir pack is dope also

Everyone maybe should grab the Meow the Drums stuff Just Blaze put out for free, at Daylight Curfew. I haven't gone thru all of it, its not so well organized per se, but to me worth the effort of filling out a cart.

I mostly produce hip-hop/wonky beats music type stuff, so my favorite packs are usually ones full of boom-bap oriented sounds.
The ones I use the most are definitely Goldbaby's Urban Cookbook Vol 2, Sample Magic's Vinyl & Tape Drum Hits, and that one archive of, like, 300 drum machines that's floating around on the internet somewhere. I try not to stick to specific packs all the time though, since I much prefer working with simple samples and processing them to sound better as opposed to just pulling drums directly out of polished packs.

This drum kit is fantastic for layering, there are lots of great raw oneshots on it for sure. (sorry about the double post btw)

I dont have that many good drum samples, the best ones are probably from the Direct Sample Pack for more chill stuff, and i bought iZotope Breaktweaker on sale just because of the Au5 drums included :P

I've been using cymatic's jack you vol. 1 drum pack a lot recently. Great for dubstep and trap tracks!

Sorry, but these are just overcompressed f*cks. I must say Wallmart drums are a treasure tho, plus they're free.
Because I just can't seem to stick to one genre, I use various packs depending on genre:
for all kinds of house songs I love Singomakers Mainroom House - you can find some nice drums, especially kicks and snares
For trap/hiphop stuff I like Blvck sheep drumkit (it's for free so get it :) ) Phonotix pack ("best selection from free drumkits on the internet") and some stuff from KRNE sample pack is pretty sweet too :)
(free) honorable mentions: Metroo Boomin Razer pack, Quix sample pack, Trisamples 808 trapstep pack 1,2
