    I spent the last couple of days with recording some drum samples. Here's a short preview of my kick and snare. My goal was a natural but fat sounding snare and a punchy kick. I used my friend's 14" custom birch snare and his starclassic kick drum.

    Snare is almost rough except for some minor EQs, Kick is Pre-Processed. We want to do 2-3 sets of Toms, a few more Snares and one Cymbal Pack the next days.

    What do you think?

    Wow these are great esp the toms and kick click n' low end.

    The snare is a bit pingy/smacky (lots of ring ..) for me, you could always damp it a bit more, tune lower to get it fatter ..

    Man these are great!

    How'd you go about recording these, I'm interested in recording samples but don't really know how to go about it!

    Can't wait to hear the rest of them.

    Toms are 100% unprocessed Avatar Toms!

    I used a sm7b on top and a sm57 on the bottom of the snare. A good tuning is important if you want a good good snare tone.

    I want to record the snare samples again with a Room Mic so you can adjust the amount of reverb/room in Kontakt.

    Toms are a bit dead,kick could be tuned a bit lower as well.
    I like the snare and the kick though.

    Maybe I'll release a processed Kit as well. Here's a mix I'm currently working on with my snare and kick sample (processed to hell and back)

    Opinions?

    Thanks!

    We're gonna record the last cymbals this week. I'll try to release them in 10-12 days.

    I add .wav, .tci and .nki. (cymbals only .wav and .nki)
