Download my two latest SmartWAV 2 samples sets here. These consist of a full single layer mono drum sample set, as well as a full multi-layer stereo cymbal sample set. Use the single layer set if you are replacing your whole kit, or the multi-layer for just replacing the cymbals. You also could only use parts of each to replace individual drums or cymbals.
You may need to rename some files if your MIDI mapping is different than mine, or edit your MIDI note output. These samples could also easily be used in an Ableton Live Drum Rack or any other software or drum module that allows you to use your own samples!
I’ve recently been trying to think of ways I can put my old Windows phone to use, and was messing with it while I was playing drums and decided to use the audio recorder to record some drums to see how they sounded. Much to my surprise I thought they sounded quite cool. So I recorded a whole set of individual drum hits all on the phone, then trimmed and cleaned them up in Audacity and am putting them here to download.
They have an almost Linn Drum-esq sound to them and really like it. It’s free for you to download and use as you like!
You may remember my soundfonts I’ve created for the 68 Slingerland and the Tama Imperialstar drum sets. But these were both previously released in .sf2 format so you needed a soundfont player to use them.
That is why I thought it would be a good idea to release them as just wav samples as well for those of you who want to load them into Ableton drum racks, or the drumkv1 sampler for Qtractor.
