99 Drum Samples II

99 Drum Samples is a two-part collection of free drum samples. It contains royalty-free drum sounds crafted from scratch using advanced sound design techniques and processed using internal and external audio gear.

The source drum samples come from various analog and digital synthesizers, acoustic drums, classic drum machines, and field recordings. We then used multiple onboard effects and studio gear to process the clean drum samples.

The included drum sounds cover various music styles, from hip-hop and trap to dubstep, electronic, synthwave, lo-fi, and pop. We imagined 99 Drum Samples as a must-have drum collection of all music producers, despite their favorite genre.

The same can be said about the sound design techniques we used to create these drum samples. We used analog distortion, high-end preamps, cheap tape recorders, field recorders, guitar amps, a spring reverb, an old Tascam PortaStudio 4-track, a vinyl deck, and a vintage tape delay unit. We even used a Game Boy to resample some of the sounds for added grit.

Here’s a portion of the gear list: Solid State Logic SSL 2+, Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK, Moog Minitaur, MFB 522 Drumcomputer, Jomox Alpha Base, Arturia DrumBrute Impact, Korg Electribe ER-1, Lell UDS, Yamaha DD-5, Golden Age Project Pre-73 MKIII, Nintendo Game Boy, Tascam Portastudio 244, Commodore 64, Dynacord Echocord Mini, and more.

The result is a unique collection of free drum samples that sound different.
