Sennheiser has released DrumMic’a, a high quality free acoustic drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

More than 13,000 samples from which the virtual drum set is re-assembled, were recorded by a professional drummer on a carefully selected drums and recorded with high-end microphones in a very good sounding recording studio.

DrumMic’a is available for free download via Sennheiser (4.3GB download size, contains 1 instrument in NKI format & over 13000 audio samples).

This seems like a high quality freebie and coming from a company like Sennheiser my expectations are pretty high. Unfortunately, the download page is in German, so I don’t really understand all the characteristics of the instrument.

I still haven’t downloaded the instrument myself, but the audio demos provided on the download page sound very good. Please let me know what you think about this one guys! Do you like the sound and usability of the instrument?

Also, does his work with Kontakt Player? From what I could gather, you don’t need the full version of Kontakt to use this one!

I saw the just recently and downloaded it as well. The good news is you can use the free kontact player (sort of a container that launches as a plugin in your DAW and this drum set lives inside it.

I only know of a few people on GMC that use KONTACT but for those folks this is a nice addition and free smile.gif

Very nice find! I have checked out the audio samples they have on the site and drums sound warm and natural.
Could be a nice drums library for for funk/pop/rock music.
