The webiste was first launched five years ago after it’s founders grew frustrated at the cost and quality of most of the drums sounds available on the internet. Since then the website has assisted over five million producers improve their work with their pool of sounds.
The drum sounds that are found on freedrumkits.net are sourced directly by the people that run the site, and in a lot of cases the sounds are created and captured by them too. It’s a time consuming and costly process, and in order to expand the project further, the people at the helm of freedrumkits.net have reached out on kickstarter for support.
The expansion that the site is looking to undertake not only will introduce a host of new sounds, but it will lay the foundations for a social network, enabling users to share their work and communicate with one another within the site as well as creating a space for tutorials and tips on home production.
Acquiring drum sounds through freedrumkits.net is a pretty simple process, but to really highlight how easy it is we’ve decided to include this demonstration video we found on youtube. Thanks to ‘Jimmy On The Beats’ for putting it together for us, complete with unnecsearilly sensual vocal sample.
There are a host of rewards available to those who pledge their support through kickstarter, check out the campaign here to find out a little more about what they’re hoping to achieve.
