Free Drumkits - something for the producers

04.01.2015 Free Drumkits - something for the producers As you never have enough drums I felt like starting 2015 with a freebie: 18 kits for Deephouse, Techno and Minimal, prepared for instant use in Maschine, Battery and Abletons Drumrack. All kits make use of the internal effects of each software, to give you maximum flexibility. And fun, of course!

The kits work with Maschine 1, 2 and Studio, Battery 3 and 4 and Ableton Live 8 upwards. You can load the drums into any sampler anyway. All drums are royalty free.

So what do you have to do for the kits? Nothing, just download. No emails are collected, no like buttons to be hit, nothing to be shared. Just grab the stuff. If you feel like sharing or donating, itís highly appreciated, though.
