66 brand-new electronic drum samples (DMD-Free)

DMD Free is created from the best of DMD 1/1.5 out-takes, "remixed" thru
some new studio tools. I spent about a week alone on this and I think the
results are favorable.

Check them out here:

Tonebuilder | Facebook

Available in:
24-bit Wav
24-bit Aif
16-bit Wav
24-bit EXS-24
24-bit Kontakt

The 24-bit Wav or Aif work in a variety of host sampler software, including
Geist/Guru, Maschine, Ableton, MPC Renaissance/Studio, and hardware
like the Elektron Octatrack. Just download and create your own kits.

The 16-bit versions are intended to be used with older hardware samplers
and are dithered from 24-bit.

Here's an audio example showcasing the possibility
of organic envelope automation due to the nature
of DMD-Free and DMDSB's sound design philosophy.

There's one kick, one snare, 2 hats, and 3 toms from
DMD-Free used in this example. No round-robin,
just straight envelope automation (hold and decay).

I used Kontakt as the sampler and envelopes combined
with Sugar Bytes Thesys as the sequencer. Thesys
is nice for this particular task because you can set
independent sequence lengths for note, gate, and midi-cc.
The midi-cc is assigned to Kontakt's hold and decay in
a scaled inverse relation.

It's still a four-on-the-floor loop, but if you listen carefully,
there's a more organic/analog quality to each hit. It's
not machine gun.

HOWEVER, if you want that robotic/tight feel like vintage
samplers, it's available to you. You aren't forced into
round-robin layers.

Also, you can use the envelopes instead of compressors
and gates. I did some automation on the kick to showcase
this, listen to how it pumps up around the 17 measure point.
No compressor. Just extended the hold.

DMD-Free and DMDSB samples have extreme hold/decay by
default which in 90% of the case, you should back off a bit.
But, on the plus side, it's more like having an instrument than
a sample library. At least, I hope that is the case.


Make sure to grab the DMD-Free in the original post.
