For anyone wanting to try out some samples of my kit, all drums have been moved to this folder. There's a hihat and 2 crashes to be done still, when I do them, they'll be in this folder.

There's 5 toms in there too. 8 x 8, 10 x 8, 12 x 8, 13 x 9 and 15 x 14. All have a rimshot and rimclick versions. All have a small amount of ambience but only the 10 has a dry versions. It was by mistake, but I might make dry versions of the rest in time. It's just a very long process, holy crap!

I noticed on the 8 x 8 rimshot, during the sampling process, it seems like the pitch of the drum changed as I was sampling it. Either that or the rimshot articulation does actually bend the note, I was hitting it very hard, so perhaps that's what it is, but just thought to mention I didn't notice at the time.

welshsteve, thank You again great job, love the toms and the ride  :)

Thanks for the feedback. I tried these samples in the mimic pro editor, with not great results I have to say. Ride faired the best and most usable. Toms, okay. 12" snare was okay too. But lacking in something... need more experimentation with the editor perhaps. Anyway the general consensus on 2box modules has been very positive. Drone Tigger Systems (Mike Timms, or Kittoys on eBay) has been very complimentary about them.

Damn, I wished I kept at least one 2box module now just to try these out. Maybe a Christmas present to myself, hmmmm!.

tried it with the great Lustark Drumit Manager there you can listen to all layers without the Module, at my next rehersal with the Drums i can record a little audio of my poor drumming if you like, salute, tex

You sir, are a good man. Thank you for making the video. I commented on it just now. I still have another crash to make and the biggest one, the hihats.

Some of these sounds are a work in progress, might need to look a little closer at the layers, processing... the ambience levels etc.

Perhaps I'll go the totally dry route, just a little over heads for stereo image but lose the room? I am not sure... But feedback welcome.

What's the consensus?

Hello Ritchiedrums, which version of Welshsteve's snare did you use for the video, sounds really good.

As that is the best one (IMHO) and the direct for better use live, I may delete the others as having that many version isn't really beneficial.

Hey everyone, just to keep you upto date. I haven't had any time to do any edits to the sounds, been a very hectic time away, now home working crazy hours and gigging all weekends. But, I WILL get around to adding the 2nd crash and doing the hihats.

I will then perhaps redo all the drums, looking more closely at eq, stereo imaging, phase alignments. I will also do a full dry version of the kit too. That'll be just direct and overheads. This will be intended for live use and better for multi channel outputs to mixers etc.
