A KVR Audio user, hbr, posted a link in the forum to a free download of a Yamaha PSS-790 drum kit.  On his site, hbr said: “All sounds in this bank are the original sounds from the Yamaha PSS-790 without any kind of processing or effects. We also preserved the original volume differences among the sounds, although that doesn’t always sound that good…“  The Drum kit includes 51 drum samples in both EXS24 and Kontakt formats.  LOVE IT.

DOWNLOAD FREE ACOUSTIC DRUM KIT FROM SOUNDS OUTSIDE THE LINES

The site, Sounds Outside the Lines, is offering a free live acoustic drum kit entitled “Basement Drums” in wav and EXS24 format.  In their post, they said: “For the beauty of imperfection….Captured at 44.1kHz/24bit using only a pair of Shure SM57s and an Apogee Duet, Basement Drums captures the authentic sound of an average drum kit with round robin layering and multiple velocities. For times when other drum sounds are too “clean”, “produced” or “even” Basement Drums could be your secret weapon.”  Personally, I like my drums to be on the grittier side so this download was right up my alley.

DOWNLOAD FREE CLASSIC DRUM MACHINE SAMPLES FROM CHRISTIAN CORIOLIS

On his website, Christian Coriolis is giving away some free one-shot drum samples.  There are several kits available for download but the Yamaha PSS-140 and Simmons SDS-9 classic drum machine kits stand out.  Of the Simmons SDS-9, Christian says: “This is a selection of drum hits taken from the 20 factory kits in the SDS-9.  Many of the kits share the same sounds for some of the individual voices, so for the sake of variation, I’ve left out the same-sounding ones and arranged the samples in voice-categories (kickdrum, snare, tom, etc) instead of kits.” I love collecting  these classic drum machines because you never know when they’ll come in handy.
