A few months ago, BedroomProducersBlog.com put out a Gameboy Drum Kit sample pack. The pack contains 64 drum samples recorded on a black Nintendo Gameboy, which was running LSDJ. BPB made an effort to come up with a wide range of sounds, as well as sounds not typic of a Gameboy. Read about the creation and the Kontakt versions of the sounds here.
As a lover of pretty much anything 8-bit, I downloaded those samples and put them into an Ableton Live Drum Rack. You can download if for free below!
This is the same model Mac Demarco used on his biggest recordings, with the difference being a soap-bar/toaster pickup and a slightly different tail-piece. I think the soap-bar pickup sounds great, keeps the trebly jangle but gives more body to the sound. Selling because I have too many guitars! Willing to work on price, thanks for looking. The free mac demarco loops, samples and sounds listed here have been kindly uploaded by other users. If you use any of these mac demarco loops please leave your comments. Read the loops section of the help area and our terms and conditions for more information on how you can use the loops. A drum kit might be an essential kind of sound, but no two kits sound alike. Sometimes you need gentler taps on the drums, other times you want the smack of an overdrive kit. A Fistful of Drum Kits by Drumdrops presents three different kits, each for a different range of sounds. Free House Drum Kit – Drum Samples by Producer Spot House Drums is one of our freeware Drum Kit released on ProducerSpot.com featuring royalty free house drum samples: house kicks, cymbals, hi hats, snares, percussion, FX, toms and many more cool drum hits from House music producers.

Below you can see the Drum Rack I created. It allows you to have some nice global effects such as a heavy compression 'Smash!', Reverb, Delay, and a Chorus. Additionally, each individual sound has its own Macros for Volume, Pan, Transpose, Filtering and more. This Drum Rack works especially nice in Push's 64 pad mode (or on a Launchpad for that matter). Not only are there drum and percussive sounds, but BPD also recorded some nice melodic samples too. The music you hear in the video above was very quickly jammed out using the 64 pad mode on Push 2.
