Ruffrider Free Drum Kit Samples


This is an early attempt at creating good sounding sampled drum kit. It’s somewhat raw sounding, in good and bad way, with mild analog “before-the-tape” processing. The preamps used were just plain generic. The recording environment was also less than ideal. It could’ve been improved in many ways, but was left “as is” to get a different sound compared to other more pristine kits. And boy does this kit have balls. Forget about bossa nova with this and bash ’em to high heavens.
