Acoustic Slate kits for download - and thoughts on making beats in NS2
Here's a couple of acoustic drum slate kits, these are based on free kits available online. I'll post some more as and when I create them.
And here's a sample of the kit in action, with some additional compression and reverb:
This kit is based on the free Big Mono kit from Analogue Drums, you can support them by buying some of their very reasonably priced drum kits, which can easily be imported into Slate (with velocity layers etc).
The Big Mono kit has several variations on the snare mapped directly to pads to make up for the lack or round robin samples in Slate. Each drum has 3 velocity layers.
A sample of this kit in action:
This is sampled from the Drum Loops HD app, which I really love (it has some great beats you can sample and use in your tracks). This kit doesn't have as many velocity layers but I have mapped variations on the pads, and when played with varied velocities it still sounds great.
