Drum sample websites?

Post by zecur » Fri Jun 24, 2011 7:09 pm

I have been making music with various instruments and my computer for a while now but I always have troubles finding or making great drum samples. Does anyone know where a good website to get free samples is? I play drums in an alternative rock band, but I find a lot of enjoyment in making drum driven tracks. I have a bunch on sound cloud but often i feel displeased with the samples and the quality of them. Any good ideas guys? :mrgreen:

There are lots of kinds of drums and "excellent" and "free" rarely intersect.

Start with this - what kind of drums are you looking for? Acoustic? Electronic? Post examples if you have 'm.

if you play drums in a band, next time yall are recording anything, with any setup (don't sweat the details, just get it to tape/drive!), just have the fellas lay out and put down some solo drums, both slow rhythms that you can break up later and also individual hits.
sample those.

you will be amazed how far you can take a sound you have complete control over.
