DTX – Exploded! Sample Set 1 now available from our e-shop!

5th May 2015:

It’s true! Our DTX – Exploded! Sample Set 1 of 3 is now available from our e-shop for FREE*!

Over 400 drum samples lovingly wrenched [or is that exploded?] from a DTXPLORER kit and then equally lovingly re-assembled as per the original factory kits, for Kontakt and sfz compatible samplers such as sforzando.

And that includes all the samples for all the factory kits. So you can create your own custom kits if you want to. Incidentally, you can browse through all our current drum products at the following link:


Set 1 gives you the full sample set and the first 8 kits (in preset format for Kontakt and sfz):
The first 8 factory kits are 1) Acoustic Kit 2) Rock Kit 3) Studio Kit 4) HipHop R&B Kit 5) Vinyl Kit 6) Vintage Kit 7) Break Kit & 8) Groove Kit.

Set 2 (also available for FREE from us gives you the next 8 kits – in preset format for Kontakt and sfz): Just merge this with your existing Set 1 folder.
That’s: 9) Mixed Voice 10) Mellow Club 11) Loop Session 12) Acoustic Funk 13) World Kit 14) Cool Hip 15) Analog Kit and 16 Techno Kit.

Note 1 : The DTX – Exploded! set is a sample pack only – in three parts. There are no electronic components, drum pads or cymbals included, just a digital sound pack, re-sampled from the original electronic kit.

Note 2: We are not affiliated with Yamaha Corporation, creator of the DTXPLORER electronic drum kit: We do however own a number of their excellent products, including the DTXPLORER kit, which I can recommend without hesitation to fellow drummers and music enthusiasts.
