Future Retro XS Drums & Percussion

Hi All,

Is anyone here using the FRXS for drums and percussion. sounds? I have been playing with the XS for a couple of hours and managed to get some really cool drum sounds!

I have built a drum kit which includes 29 samples. All sounds have been programmed from scratch on the XS. Signal chain is XS - Distressor (slight compression) - API pre-amp - Converters.

The sounds are attatched to this post for you to use in your productions - no strings attatched. I urge anyone whos considering buying a FRXS to check them out. This is only the tiniest fraction of whats possible with the XS drums wise - Its a really cool box.

I have also attatched a really rough small audio demo. Sorry for the bad mix - its just to showcase some of the sounds. Slight buss compression has been used on the demo.

Enjoy!

I liked the samples, but its not the way I work -
I do everything either on the keyboard or via midi. Since I have
an FR XS, photos / patch sheets would be great . Either way though,
the samples do show what can be done with this fine machine.

I will be sure to give patch sheets if I do another free kit thumbsup

There are many processed XS sounds included in our Drum Tools library within the 'synth percussion' folder. They sound really nice!

I did! One of the reason's the XS is on my wantlist is the nice percussion sounds it can create, among other things of course. My intention is to create killer techno drumkits for my S950, just load a disk and jam with the sounds that'll probably will fit together very well, since they come from the same machine.

Thanks! These are great. They will function well in many styles of music, including minimal house, electroclash (what do they call that genre nowadays?), hip hop (The Neptunes or Timbaland could rock these sounds in a track), and others. Chip Tuners could probably bit-reduce them and use them to great effect as well, even though they didn't come from a Game Boy.

Yes you would definately be able to make some great kits for use in your sampler. Synths are a great way to go to make less generic sounding drums and percussion.

Just for laughs after seeing this thread, I made a few drum samples using my XS. For some reason it never occurred to me to try it with the XS and I'm really happy with the results. The overdrive on kicks is NICE!
