Some Maschine Kits...
by Chris Randall
As you no doubt know if you're a regular reader of this blog, I very rarely use any pre-built drum sounds; I prefer to make my own via various synthesis and recording methods, and I do individual kits for nearly every song I write nowadays. For the last EP, most of the drum sounds are either recorded electro-acoustic sounds, or created via synthesis in Max/MSP. However, I made several synthesis-based kits on other gear that I didn't end up using. If you have a Maschine, you might find these handy. Here is a zip file containing three Maschine kits. (Zip is 3 megs and change.)
1. CR MeeBlip Drums - This, as the name implies, is a kit of drum sounds made on the MeeBlip SE.
2. CR Reactive Drums - This kit is farmed from a custom drum synthesis Reaktor patch that Adam and I made last summer.
3. CR Massive Drums - I made the sounds in this kit with Massive.
Note that all three kits are fully resampled; you don't need to have Massive or Reaktor installed or anything. You do, however, need the latest Maschine software update. Obviously, the samples are in the appropriate folders, so if you don't have a Maschine, you can still grab 'em; you'll just need to build your own kits in your weapon of choice.
