Complete Cymbal Collection Sample Download – Audacity Master Files

Today I spent a few hours recording all of my cymbals individually to use with my SmartWav2+MIDI. I figured I would upload them here for you to download to use in your own projects.

Each cymbal is recorded in Audacity 3.0.2, Stereo 32bit Float, 44100khz, using a Shure KSM32, and are as follows :

  • Rides are recorded 4 velocity levels each of bow, edge and bell
  • Crashes 4 velocity levels bow, and edge
  • Hi hats 4 velocity levels bow and edge
  • fx cymbals 4 velocity levels edge

You will have to trim, export and name the files yourself. I left them this way so it would be easier to use in multiple applications or drum modules.
