I made a drum kit to share.
davidv had mentioned in my 4bit and dmc kit creation tutorial that he'd have liked to include more sample kits in chipsounds (but had left them out due to possible legal difficulties). It got me thinking. I'm pretty good at sound design. I should try to make one from scratch. so using some sounds I created in logic (mostly using pink noise and a resonant filter). I made a completely royalty free electro kit (inspired by the Kraftwerk and LFO records I was listening to a couple of hours ago).
this is a fairly beefy/techy set of drums. Have a listen:
edit: added that's the dmg one here's a sample of the 4bit version...with more laser sounds.
this zip contains all you need to get it running:
I've simplified the process of installing as much as possible.
1 place the folder called "electro_8bit" in the "data/user/samples folder" folder.
2 place the file called "Electro Kit.sfz" in the "programs/09. User folder" folder.
3 after saving a copy of your "chipsounds.bank.xml" to another place on your hardrive (restoring this file is sort of the equivalent of uninstalling these drums) copy my edited version into chipsounds' main application folder.
that should be it. then just fire up chipsounds. you will be able to select a 4bit or DMC version of the kit. They're the last items in the user section.
once again legal disclaimer...blah blah blah I cant be held responsible for loss or damages. I'm just some guy having fun.
feel free to use them in your projects/songs. I'd like a mention but it isn't necessary.
hope you like them.
I plan to do more homegrown stuff. hopefully venture into more sound creation as well as skinning. I'll post more when I figure it out.
