Drum and Cymbal Samples

AcuDrums User Guide (PDF): English, Deutsch

Voxengo AcuDrums - a library of high-quality samples of acoustic drum and cymbal instruments, recorded at Voxengo recording studio.  Samples are stored in plain WAV format, with MIDI drum instrument files available in NKI (Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5/4+; Kontakt Player in demo mode only - it times out) and SFZ (Cakewalk Session Drummer 2 and 3) formats.

This acoustic drum sample library as a whole contains more than 17000 WAV files, more than 110 instrument files and takes more than 11 GB of disk space.  Instruments of this library can be purchased separately or in custom bundles (a discount will apply).

The NKI instrument files of this library can be loaded in Kontakt together in a desired combination thus allowing you to build a kit of your likening "on the fly", and save it as the "multi" for a later recall.  Each instrument is mapped to its usual drum MIDI notes, and can be easily remapped via drag'n'drop in Kontakt's "mapping editor" in case of an overlap.  NKI files were created with Translator.

(the end-user license agreement is presented in the user guide)
