This sample pack was first created for my own needs. Then I figured why not share it with you? The unit I sampled is my own Roland TR-606. The sounds are beautifully dusty and full of character. It's free, but if you want, you're more that welcome to throw in some extra €.
This pack contains normalized One Shots of all the instruments for your bread-and-butter-606-needs. Including the lovely "double hits" of the Hihats and Toms. All sounds in this pack comes in two versions; Clean and Boum. The Clean is clean, as in "still quite noisy". The Boum version is distorted through the very gritty box called Boum by Oto Machines.
If you want to dig deeper, take a look in the "Unedited..." folder. There you'll find each instrument sampled in 7 hits, with 3 degrees of Accent (0%, 50%, 100%).
Why(?) you might ask.
-The TR-606's character changes a lot when Accented. The noise gets louder and some distortion from within the unit is introduced. Sometimes that exactly what you need, and sometimes not. Now you get to choose your own favorite flavour. Most other sample packs only include very clean sounds. This is not one of those packs.
The Ableton Live 11 Drum Rack - with special features
With the Ableton Drum Rack you can easily switch each Pad between the Clean- and the Boum-one. And on top of that, the Drum Rack includes two super-nice features:
Each drum pad contains three degrees of Accent (0%, 50% and 100%), triggered by Velocity
Each Pad is randomizing between seven hits, to create a subtle but moving sound.
Simply open the Ableton project included and save the Drum Rack to your User Library.

Requirements & Compability:

How to install:

Once the project is loaded, click the little save-icon in the top right corner of the Drum Rack (preferably save the ”original settings” rack, in order to get the ”standard” as a start-off). The Drum Rack get saved to in your ”User Library”, easy accessible through the browser on the left side in Ableton Live.
