Machinedrum/Jomox Xbase Samples?????

Post by linndrum9000 » Mon Aug 25, 2008 9:41 pm

Does anybody know of anywhere to find free(or cheap) sample kits of these drum machines. There is a small(about 36) sample kit of the Xbase09 I found, and there are Mbase samples in the Gold Baby Tape drum machines Vol.1(might get that). Just wondering if there is anything ive missed. Ive searched pretty hard and cant find much. Thanks if anybody knows where I can get a good sample library of these machines.

Hmmm, I guess 50 bucks could be considered cheap. I was hoping more towards the free/under 25 bucks range. Anybody tried the sample pack sold on their website??? Thanks though.

I downloaded a huge sample set of machinedrum sounds recorded and made available free online by one Rusty O'Hara (I think that's right) who I believe is a member here. You might be able to find it with a bit of googling.

Samples of drum machines that allow sysnthesis is just like sampling a Minimoog IMHO...it's not going to capture the real feel / sound of those machines. That said, good samples of the Jomox stuff is easier to get than the MD. The MD sample sets that come on disc form suck bad...

I agree with that. Although I have a Moog Little phatty, and sample it then spread it across my keys in an NNXT to play it polyphonically. Doesn't capture the full essence of the Moog sound but it sounds way better then the Reason Softsynths. That being said the beauty of the machinedrum is its workflow and synthesis, but I still like its sound and you can still shape the raw MD samples with the ADSR and Filters Etc. of a softsampler. I found that one library that was mentioned earlier by Stab Frenzy. Its alright but the samples are not choped to one shots so its going to take a bit to slice em all up. Thanks everybody. If anybody finds more samples please let me know.

I'm not saying that it can't work...because it can. However, to me synthesis is individual...so what may float someone else's boat may not float mine when it comes to how they chose to synthesize their sounds. Since the MD has such a crazy wide range, what one person makes may be the exact opposite of what I want...so their samples would be useless. That's all I meant.

technically (with the machinedrum more so than the analog Jomox) you could sample each parameter at every step and every possible combination and there you go....

So yeah, a few million samples later you would almost have a machinedrum.

I've got some machinedrum samples somebody posted on the Ableton forum. I'll upload them to Zshare for whoever wants them.
