When life gets crazy, I find refuge in my creativity. Because of that, I have been deep in music-making these last few weeks.
I am working on new tracks for my Shatter Spell music project and wanted a really good collection of Frame Drums and Hand Drums. Luckily I recorded some over the years but never made an easy to use Drum Rack… until now.
And like usual, my work is your gain.
I created a free to download Drum Rack featuring a few Hand Drums. Check out the walkthrough below:
The Ableton Live Pack included seven different Frame Drums from around the world.
Bodhran(High and Low) – is a frame drum of Irish origin. The drum goatskin head one side. The other side is open-ended to allow one hand to be placed against the inside of the drum head to control the pitch and timbre.
Frame Drum – This was a rawhide frame drum with a single skin on one side similar to the Bodhran.
Shaman Drum (3 different versions) – The Shaman Drum was a 13 sided traditional Native American frame drum. Because the drum has so much character I 3 different Drum Racks. This gives you control over the quality of sound you are looking for to add to your track.
The Drum Rack is for free / by donation. I want to give musicians access to tools and samples to help inspire their music. If this has helped you or you want to support me making more, consider donating. Even $2 goes a long way to cover website costs.
