Hi Guys,

We will soon be releasing what we believe to be our most ambitious drum sample library to date - Synth Drums

Imagine taking ten of the most sought-after vintage synthesizers in history, synthesizing hundreds of drum sounds with each instrument and processing each of these sounds individually using a carefully thought out high-end signal chain and you are getting a little closer to understanding the concept of our forthcoming Synth Drums sample library..

As a kind gesture we are giving away (for free) 200 drum sounds from our forthcoming Synth Drums release! These sounds are taken directly from the full library which we expect will be released in around four weeks' time.

The 200 free sounds included here showcase only a very small fraction of what to expect from the full Synth Drums collection, which will offer over 5000 samples!

There is no catch; the taster sounds are 100% royalty free and can be used in your music compositions. You can download the 200 taster drum sounds HERE

Just got to say, as soon as I upgrade my kontakt 3 to kontakt 5 I am buying Pro II. This is one of the phattest synths I have heard. I find myself using kontakt and analog samples more and more to get the sound I want.

I have never bought from wave alchemy before but I will be soon!


p.s Thanks for all the free sounds, they are very high quality!!!

Thank you for all the positive comments guys.

I hope everyone is enjoying the free taster sounds from Synth Drums!

We recently selected a few hundred of our favourite sounds from the library and had a 12" Dubplate pressed courtesy of The Carvery in London :D

We are now in the process of editing the vinyl samples... sounding good!

Next.. Analogue tape :D
