Is there any pack to be recommended when it comes to percussive sounds as close as a real drum kit?
Watch this space! I’m working on one, very happy with it so far but about 50% of the way through, it will be available on my payhip store when done, I will post the link once it is ready.
I don’t like to give a deadline as I am working on quite a few packs for various machines at present, and I tend to like to not work on the same one for too long as it gets boring, but should not be too far off.
I’m totally in!
I really wish Elektron would put out a sound pack for the Rytm with just a great assortment of natural acoustic kits (Gretsch, Slingerland, Rogers, Ludwig). It seems like anytime they do an actual acoustic drum kit, it has to be some glitchy warped version.

Sorry but could we avoid derailing offtopic already? I posted on the Digitone sub for a reason
Ha sorry I read a bit quickly, only the last messages of this topic.
Sorry, I didn’t realize this was for the Digitone.
There are great drumkit sounds inside this pack: demo 3 | Heavy Systems, Inc.
The author told me the recent update broke the sounds with LFO and envelopes not reseting properly anymore though.
I wish i’d find a pack in this taste dedicated to drumkit sounds on the DN.
The max4live plugin by Yvla (Temporarium Secretarium ?) is kind of a DIY drum kit for the Digitone.
Generate -> Cool -> Save
Generate -> Meh -> Generate again
Edit : damn, not even close to real drum. My bad.
Ahahah yes it’s a Pattern Generator if i’m correct. I was craving for it but i’m waiting for a possible standalone version as i don’t use Max4Live.
She did both : a pattern generator and a random-drum sound generator.
I guess you could use it with a demo version of ableton as it simply send a bunch of midi cc for generating sounds on the dn… But that’s anotha topic !
This one’s free: Uncanny Valley | Elektron
I checked the demo of Uncanny Valley and was not so conviced though. Maybe i should really give it a try.
I am using Linux and I already asked @ylva about a possible standalone. I am not interested in buying his stuff to use in a demo that i should download just for this and not be able to use after a limited time, especially cause I am sure i would use Secret Friend and Secret Temporarium quite extensively
I am not a fan in general of having to buy something to use another stuff. Seems like exporting to standalone is quite easy to do when you have a license for Max.
Porting it to Pure Data should be straight forward (probably just a bit tedious)
Quick and dirty preview of a few sounds, there are a number of realistic drum sounds, a few shown here, but also some drum machine type sounds and some other different types of drum sounds from retro to modern.
+1 for Yvla’s random drum patch generator. I have gotten a ton of great drum sounds out of it. Plus it’s super easy to use. I know nothing about MaxMSP and Istill figured it out. It always amazes me how things like that aren’t more blown up on this board. It’s very much “teach a man to fish” type stuff as opposed to sample or sound packs. Also on a “IMHO” note if you are looking for authentic acoustic drum sounds on the DN you might be disappointed. Especially when it comes to snares. The DN and M:C to me come up with very interesting “snare” sounds but nothing really comes close to replicating an actually acoustic snare or even close to a snare from an 808 or other analog drum synth.
909 type snare
Unfortunately, there’s not much I can do to be able to use @ylva’s tools.
I’m not i terested by machine drum, it’s the opposite i’m looking. Any pack is filled with digital sounding stuff. I am quite tired to have to buy packs just to use 10% of it so i would not even buy a pack that is not « themed » or musically coherent.
Love it, Daren
The biggest challenge on Digitone seems to be a good clap.
In addition to the packs mentioned above, there’s also Digitone Drums and Percussion Patch Pack and Sample Pack
