Fake Acoustic Drum Kit is a free pack of pseudo-acoustic drum one-shot sounds made completely in NI FM8 synth. In a single pack you get more than 500 original high quality quasi-convincing drum sounds, meticulously recorded and sorted by instruments.
In the package you can find kicks, snares, rimshots, hats, rides, toms, shakers, other percussion instruments. And there is a bonus folder with Weird samples. They are unsorted wavs of unrealistic-sounding one-shots gathered during the development of the pack.
The samples are untreated in any way. The only effects used are the ones that are built in FM8 itself. So you get snare samples kind of “recorded with a room mic” — with Reverb FX, kicks with slightly boosted low end with Shelf EQ and Overdrive FXs. So they encourage you to do all processing in context of your project.
Included are the sampler instruments for Ableton Live’s Drum Kit, NI Maschine (group), NI Kontakt, Logic’s EXS. For these samplers they’ve shortlisted their subjective top hits from all of the 500+ samples collection.
