SMM has announced the release of 1960s Ludwig Oyster Blue Pearl Drum Kit, a free acoustic drum sample pack featuring over 300 individual drum hits. Our friend Burzukh has built a set of free TX16Wxsampler mappings for this kit, which you can download right here on BPB!
The sample pack was released on Cockos Confederated Forums a month ago and it’s yet another great set of acoustic drum samples for use in hard rock and similar music genres. Although the pack doesn’t include different velocity layers, there are tons of round robin variations for each drum element. Thanks to all these round robin variations, the overall sound of the sampled kit remains quite natural most of the time, especially for classic rock and pop style drums (where the intensity of the hits is mostly the same throughout the song). Check the entire BPB review here.
