Acoustic Drum Samples | Mix Ready

Indie Drums - Spacer

Our Mix Ready™ Drum Kit Samples have been produced to allow you to create your own blend and mix of each kit element. Each patch includes multiple mic channels to provide you with extra control over the sound.

These drum sample libraries were recorded at 24 Bit / 96 KHz using Lynx Aurora converters to provide detailed and open sounding samples. Our goal was to create triggered samples that sound natural and blend beautifully with your recorded drum tracks.

As with our Classic Kit, these Mix Ready™ Drum Kits use our UniTT – Universal Trigger Threshold to make switching between patches easy and consistent, even after automation.

Each Drum Kit includes: Kick, Snare, Rack & Floor Tom*. The snare includes Side Stick and Rim Shot articulations. Each library is made from 1,740+ unique samples.

* Yamaha Recording Custom includes 2nd Floor Tom

… more versatile and usable in modern sounding productions than the Blackbird stuff… I just loaded it up in Trigger, tweaked the balances of the mics, and did a little touch up EQ. Super simple.
– J.R Paredes (Satellite Music Group)
