Hey guys,it's my first time ever posting something on any forum. :')
I was wondering if anyone can help me with something. :)

I'm dying to find some sample pack for a long time that has drums as clean as in this video for example:

Thanks guys! :)
Cheers! :)

Either a clean, unprocessed recording of a drum machine or an even cleaner modern emulation. With all the massively processed drum samples out there today, that is not so easy to find.

https://d16.pl/drumazon is an emulation of the TR-909, they also have separate 808 and 606 plugins.
https://www.softube.com/heartbeat is a general-purpose drum machine emulation, not copying any specific model.

If you want similar things in software form, you can probably find high quality unprocessed samples somewhere. Soniccouture Electro-Acoustic has them but it also has a lot more and is not cheap. Wave Alchemy, perhaps? If nothing else, grab the free Tanzbar samples they put in a blog post here: https://www.wavealchemy.co.uk/blog/free ... um-samples. It's a modern hardware drum machine so not from Tina Turner's era but same kind of vibe and I get a lot of use out of it.

You can probably find good clean samples of 909s, LinnDrums and Oberheims out there for free, too, I just don't have specific links handy.

+1 for Wave Alchemy. They have many excellent sample packs that should do the trick, or you may want to check out their Kontakt Player-powered Revolution or Drumvolution .

I've searched through the entire internet. :'D None of the samples I've found are that clean. Every sample has gone through some kind of processing. :')
I'll just keep searching untill I finally break down mentally. :))
Thanks! :)

Hmmm we must be on different internets then. Mine is full of samples like the ones in the video you posted.... :shrug:

Thanks @thecontrolcentre. I've checked. Unfortunately those are not the sounds I'm looking for. :)
Thanks once again. :)

that's actually a fairly produced, ie. processed snare and kick. It sounds like a Yamaha drum machine I had but with some judicious compression and EQ'd nicely. there's no reason you can't get that in a BFD or SD acoustic drums instrument, it's not that remarkable a sound frankly. You may be looking for a kind of placebo effect out of nostalgia being that choosy.

Oh for sure I developed unhealthy obsession for those types of clean snares. :))
Everything is taped and crushed and trap based and it pisses me off. :D
I'll try your recommendation right away for sure.
Thanks! :)

You don't mention which DAW you use, but on my website there are several very clean acoustic kits for Live. The samples can be used in any sampler/DAW ...
