This may yet be the smallest kit on this site.
1 kick, 1 side stick, 1 snare, 3 toms, closed / open / foot hats and a crash.
In 15 MB you get a fully equipped drumkit that uses TX16WX’s powerful modulation to emulate “real world” drum behavior.
So randomization effects the ADSR envelope, filter, pitch etc in subtle ways, further augmented by velocity based modulation for each.
Let me know how it goes. Just load the bank in TX16WX and you are ready to go.
Here is a different kind of drumkit : a nice non velocity instrument. Though it is non-velocity (except the crash cymbals which are velocity layered), the substantial number of round robins keeps thing quite musical. It works pretty well in a modern hard rock context, where a huge range of soft performance dynamics are not required.
You will need the free TX16WX sampler. Download from here :
Install before proceeding with below.
The kit is here (a small 188 MB zipped) :
1. Download, unzip and run the included Reaper project file.
I have included the used sample content in the download, and there is no locating of samples required.
2. It is pretty much plug and play (and hopefully fool proof). The kit is stereo out by default.
The mapping is GM standard, except MIDI Note 47 which is loose hat articulation instead of a tom.
3. It is set by default to stereo out , but you can select multi-out instead of stereo out (drop down option on the left side). If you select the multi-out, you need to ensure/build the routing.
I tried to make this as RAM / CPU friendly and simple as possible. But I guarantee that you will be surprised at the realism of the kit.
This version is programmed for TX16WX, one of the best soft samplers available today. All the functionality works fine in the free version.
