Drum Samples FAQ

Q: What is a drum sample?

A: A drum sample is short audio file consisting of a single strike of a drum sound, such as a bass drum. So, a bass drum or kick sample contains a single strike, 'thump' or 'hit', of a bass or kick drum.

Q: What are the different types of drum samples?

A: Broadly, there are two types of drum sample - acoustic and electronic. Acoustic drum samples are sourced and recorded from real drums and live drumming, whereas electronic drum sounds are generated using synthesizers and software.

Both types have many different sub types, which relate to the various parts of an acoustic drum kit - bass or kick drum, snare drum, tom, hi hat, crash cymbal, ride cymbal and so on.

Q: How can I use drum samples in my music?

A: You can use drum samples by recording or creating your own, or by downloading drum sample packs such as those we offer here on ModeAudio. These packs contain ready-made sounds that can be used directly in the arrangement section of your DAW, or within a sampler such as Ableton Live's Sampler device.

Q: What's the difference between drum samples, hits, one-shots, kits & loops?

A: The terminology can be confusing, but a drum sample, hit and one-shot are all the same thing - a short audio file consisting of a single strike of a given drum. Drum loops are patterns of a number of different drum sounds organised into a percussive rhythm, whereas a drum kit is a preset consisting of a set of related drum sounds that can be played together using a sampler such as Reason's Kong device. 

All ModeAudio drum sample packs contain drum kit presets for various software samplers, allowing you to start programming beats and rhythms as soon as you open up your DAW.
