Pete Lockett has put together some kits for all drummers longing for more percussion sounds! Pete is playing his sounds with sticks on the DrumIt Five kit. Only a little reverb is added for atmosphere.
To use Pete's kits/sounds setup please follow these instructions:
Copy the sound folders in the Pete Lockett percussion folder to the Perc folder of the DrumIt Five memory. and you will be able to play his sounds at these kit numbers below. You must also download the drumit.dkt file you find in the Pete Lockett percussion folder to make that happen. This drum kit bank is built up with the standard 100 factory kits besides these kits located from 40 to 46.
Please note: Before you download and overwrite your own drumit.dkt file we strongly suggest you make a backup of your own drumkit file!
Pete configured these kits with his percussion sounds which are mainly located on tom 1 and tom 2 and incorporate the rims. Please listen to Pete's explanations of the kit setup's on the MP3 files.
Professional Series: Percussion Instruments
You will find a number of percussion instrument sounds for download on these pages. There will be more added soon so keep popping by to check.
They are all designed with the drum set player in mind and are configured in such a way as to give the drummer a direct access to playing these sounds with a feeling of authenticity along the lines of the actual acoustic instrument.
Quite often a drummer will add a percussion instrument to their drum set. A pair of bongos above the hi hat, a conga to the left of the hi hat etc. It is a very useful thing in situations where something a little different is required. There are so many percussion plug-ins now at the fingertips of the songwriter that they will often want this little extra bit of input from the drummer, be it live or in the studio.
With this in mind I have been beginning to develop combinations of kit and percussion which could serve both purposes. At the core of it is the idea of having a percussion instrument spread across two drum pads. This gives the drummer the option of still keeping the main body of the drum set whilst having this extra percussion add on.
Take the Cajon for example, the wooden box so popular for many years in Spanish flamenco and increasingly popular in mainstream western music. If one puts the open bass tone on the floor tom and the treble and slap tones on rack tom 2 skin and rim, then one immediately has a good playable configuration. Same with Darabouka or many other percussion instruments where the bass tone can be on one pad and the treble tones on another.
The idea also is that the configuration makes it easy for a drummer with no knowledge of the traditional drum to use simple stickings such as ‘R L R L’ or ‘R L L R L L R L’ and come up with something that can certainly create the feel of the acoustic instrument.
All the MP3 demos on this page are using these patches and are played with sticks on the 2Box kit. There are no loops or acoustic playing involved at all. You will be surprised at what you hear.
