Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you this new collection of free drum samples by realdrumsamples that I’ve been enormously impressed with lately. They offer a kick-ass 100+ free drum samples pack on their homepage available for anyone to download.
A small selection of music industry heavyweights already using the drum sounds are:
- Los Da Mystro (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, R. Kelly)
- Souldiggaz (Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Hudson)
- Young Fyre (Rick Ross, Lil’ Wayne, T-Pain)
- Claudio Cueni (Dr. Dre, 2Pac, Nas)
What the Pros Say…
Jay Fisher, who made the samples, is getting some great feedback.
American hip-hop producer, audio engineer and mixer Neal Pogue (Outkast, Pink, Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J) says:
“I love what I heard! The 808’s, snares and percussions, these sound so great. Can’t wait to start using them.”
Multi-platinum recording engineer and record producer, Dave Aron (U2, Dr. Dre, The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg) says:
“I like the wide variety and sonic quality. I really like ’em.”
Producer, mixer and engineer Jean-Marie Horvat (Beyonce, Timbaland, Trey Songz, Justin Timberlake) simply says:
“They sound Amazing.”
