Downloadable Sample Sounds
The following sample sets come in two formats. As zip packages with each wav file separate or as a Gigasampler sample set. All of these samples, unless noted, were recorded in the Tic Tok Men Compound.

These sounds are available for personal or professional use in musical compositions. You may redistribute the original zip files under the following conditions.
1) Samples must be redistributed FREE OF CHARGE. They are not to be sold without written permission of The Tic Tok Men.
2) The "read_me" text file contained in the zip packages must remain intact and unaltered.

With that, download away and go make some music.

Moogdrums One

I created these sounds using the Moog Rouge synthesizer. The 79 samples are roughly broken down into the following sound groups.

3 - Clave
6 - Clicks
4 - Closed High Hat (solo)
2 - High Conga
2 - Low Conga
5 - Crash
7 - FX sounds (usable, thunks and bloops)
3 - FX Percussion (more thunks and bloops)
5 - Closed High Hats (paired with open hats below)
5 - Open High Hats
7 - Kick Drums
2 - Rim Shots
7 - Snare Drums
4 - Kick Drums (sub bass)
5 - High, Mid and Low toms (Note: There is not a "Mid1" tom.)
3 - Woodblock

All samples are clean and without effects or "sweetening". The recording path was from the Moog to an Event Darla and captured in Sound Forge.

Bit Rate: 16-bit
Sample Rate: 44,100 Hz
Channels: Mono

The Gigasampler set breaks each octave (C1 to C7) into different drum groups. Commonly Kick drums are on C, Snares on D, Hi-hats on C# and D#, Toms on F, G and A, ect. Just use it, you'll get the picture.

RetroDrums One

These are samples of old drum machines I've collected over the years. Not all recordings were done in house (but all are free use licenses).

The sample set consists of several drum machines (listed below). Each drum machines sounds are spread out over each octave from C1 to C7. There are, in some cases, sounds from some machines that have been grouped with others. This is because that machine had more then 12 sounds. But, the basic layout is the same on each.

C = Bass Drum
C# = Closed Hi-hat
D = Snare
D# = Open Hi-hat
E = Rimshot
F = Low Tom
F# = Ride
G = Mid or High Tom
G# = Crash
A = High Tom or various
A# = Random Sound
B = Handclap

Drum Machines Used:
