Wave Alchemy has introduced Drum Tools 02 Taster, a freely downloadable collection of completely royalty free drum samples taken directly from their forthcoming Drum Tools 02 commercial release.
According to the news available on their website, Wave Alchemy spent the past two years working on Drum Tools 02. The release is officially announced for December 29th and this free taster pack should give us a good idea about the kind of quality we can expect to see (and hear) in the full version of the product. The freebie pack contains 175 drum sounds, all available as 24-bit WAV files and, most importantly, available for royalty free use even in your commercial projects.
Just a quick friendly tip for those of you who are new to Wave Alchemy samples. Their drum sample libraries are among the best out there in terms of quality (right on the top along with Goldbaby, ToneBuilder and a few other high profile drum sample providers), and their website is a huge resource of free drum sounds. You can build a solid collection of electronic drum samples for your music making needs, simply by downloading the freely downloadable (and also royalty free) content from their website.
Tube Drums Hits from Samplephonics is my usual starting point for downtempo hiphop kinda stuff; I really love most of their deep acoustic kicks and their crisp snares.edit: it was a free download sample pack when I got it
Royalty free songs you can download, remix, and use in your own projects. SampleSwap members have contributed over 2,500 songs, many of which have been picked up for use in film, TV, video games and apps. 2b1af7f3a8
