Our latest sample collection brings together Zourman Drum’s 2box knowledge, a fantastic sounding snare from 101Drums and the work of Johan Koleberg’s drum recordings in one great pack of snare samples. The custom samples are now released as a Zourman drum sampling product and customers can buy it as a download at the www.zourman.com site.
101Drums is a Swedish fast-growing company that specializes in making drum shells and snare drums out of a specially treated wood-fibre material. The shells are designed to be impervious to extreme weather changes and moisture. The resulting sound is intended to be deep and round – optimal for pop & rock drummers!
The 101Drums samples consist of 168MB samples, 6 different snare sounds generated from over 800 drum hits. With the 2box open sound source approach, we were able to create another sample package to our library based on a great snare and release it in 2box file format.
To extend the Zourman Drums offerings, we are now turning our attention to a custom sound library of samples for 2box. With the 2box open sound source approach, we were able to create a sample package based on a great snare and release it in 2box file format.
The Ludwig Black Beauty snare is a well-known snare to all drummers and treated as the de-facto standard among drummers in the world. This very rare instrument was produced 1922 and despite a history of almost 100 years, the snare still sounds fantastic!
The samples are the result of a joint venture project with Jouni Niemi, owner of Big Jambo Studios, who has been a part of the 2box family since 2009 when he designed many of the factory sounds found in the DrumIt Five module. Together, Zourman Drums aimed to create the best snare samples in the world!
After more than 100 hours of recording, editing, remixing and repackaging of the snare into DSDN file format, the snare sample includes about 10 different ‘flavours’.
