Soft Drums

Soft Drums


I like drums. Drums are loud.

I recorded these soft drum samples for when I want the sound of traditional drums but need them to fit alongside and underneath quiet music. The kit is a 1960’s Ludwig covered with blankets and hit with Promark Broomsticks, resulting in a brushy vibe with muted drum tones. Great for adding percussive subdivisions that take up a small amount sonic real estate.

These drums are so good that I’d actually like to pay for them.
However, I wish there was a feature for changing MIDI mapping. I wish I could just drag and drop MIDI from Superior Drummer and it could work out of the box.
The sampling quality is as good as it gets.
