ACOUSTIC SINGLE-HITS AND DRUM LOOPS
Introduction: Professionally recorded acoustic drums using coated Remo Ambassador heads on the Snare and Toms and a clear Remo Powerstroke-3 head on the
Kick drum. Cymbals are also included. Audition files are low quality MP3 format for faster download. For CD quality WAV format sound files (16 bit, 44100 Hz, stereo recordings), click Download for your free product. After downloading, you can upload these uncompressed files into a compatible music editing software program for use. If you prefer the sound of machine generated drums, go to Machine Drums.
Use these single-hits to construct your own drum patterns in your favorite
music editing software (i.e., grid mode in the edit window). Experiment
with various EQ, Compression, Reverb, etc. settings to give these raw, unprocessed
files a unique sound.
Sound files are named according to microphone placement (i.e., Room, and Drum
or Cymbal microphones). Upload both files into your editing software
and adjust volumes accordingly. For example, using the "Drum"
or "Cymbal" microphone files alone will give you a focused
drum or cymbal sound, compared to using the "Room" microphone
files which will give you a more wide open drum or cymbal sound. Use
both files for a balanced, stereo drum sound.
