Iphone Drums

A simple Drumkit sampled with my phone...

The story

I have always liked the sound of drums recorded through my iPhone, so that’s what I wanted to make! I used my phone as a single mono room mic, because thats where I like it. I also liked how distorted and huge the room sounds, I hope you enjoy! This is a test sample pack, I will re-sample the kit with more dynamic layers and round robbins in the future!

  • Surprisingly good

    I was surprised at how much i liked this. It has a very trashy dirty sound thats really cool. I particularly like the kick and snare a-lot. I can see myself using these. I wish there were more round robins on the hi hats because i feel like they can start to sound robotic when playing fast patterns. But all in all for what this is, considering it was recorded on an iPhone, its a cool instrument

  • Perfect amount of dirty drum spice.

    A clever idea using an iPhone to record a drum set. There's a compression that iPhones add to 'voice note' recordings. That, combined with the room this was recorded in makes for a really garage rock vibe. It's a dirty but open sound and it works brilliantly. I'm glad Jim will be adding more dynamic layers and RR's later, its sure to make this one of the top libraries on PB. Great stuff!

  • Drums with feels

    Lots of big, open sounds here along with lots of noise, but I suppose that's part of the charm. If you're looking for some lo-fi rather grungy drums, these might prove a really good option.

  • The garage drum sound you might be looking for

    This simple kit is very dirty to say the least. It plays really damn well and it sounds very full even though it has been recorded with an iPhone. Due to that though, you might be able to locate some noise in the tails of each sample, but as you actually play it it's not noticable, especially if you include lots of cymbals. Speaking of cymbals, the only thing that I would change is the how open feels the open hi-hat, since it sounds too open for me, and the sample stops a little too suddenly. But again, in the context of a full drum beat, these things are not noticable.

  • Lo-fi excellence

    Great idea. Sounds simple but this is really well done and totally works as a concept. Love the way you can hear the resonance of the toms decaying in the kick and snare samples. Can't wait for the "pro" version, some round robins especially for the hi hats would take it to the next level.
