What is it?

The eNerd library for 2Box is a series of high quality drumkits developed for real drummers playing real gigs. The 2Box DrumIt Five and DrumIt Three -still being the most natural sounding drum modules out there- are the perfect hosts for these stunning instruments.

Aren't there enough great sounding kits for the DrumIt modules?

Although the existing 2Box library has great sounds, they're not very well organized. There's a kind of randomness in which kit is completely dry, which one has lots of ambience and which one has a moderate room setting. This makes some kits unusable in certain musical situations. Dry kits can always be treated with external effects, but you can't kill the ambience that's part of the samples. (e.g. I really like the factory Yamaha Recording Custom kit, but I found it too wet for some tunes).

Four steps of room ambience from dry to wet

So, the basic principle behind the eNerd kits was to create a well organized and predictable structure of drum kits, where every instrument has at least four versions with various levels of room ambience, from fully dry to very wet, so if someone likes a particular kit, he/she is likely to find a version that has the right amount of ambience.

Custom mixes will precisely meet your requirements

If none of the readily available mixes are suitable for your musical application, we can make a custom mix for you at a reasonable price to make sure you get the desired amount of ambience for your drumkits.

Help us to expand our library

Please watch the video at the top left of this page about how the eNerd library was made to get an idea on how much work it takes to develop high quality sampled instruments. The video obviously can't show the several weeks of editing, which was the most time consuming part of the whole process -we didn't want to bore you to death with that-, but believe us, it's not something you'd do on a daily basis without a strong dedication.


„I've used all kinds of drum modules on stage for many years starting with some old analog drum synths and the earliest digital samplers and including the most expensive drum modules using physical modelling and found the DrumIt Five module by 2Box to be the one of the most natural sounding drum devices to date." Endre-eNerd

"My goal is to create a constantly expanding library of high quality instruments for a variety of genres, meeting the same high standards that I set for the RP1k kits. I'll need your contribution to keep the eNerd library growing. If you like the kits, then please consider donating any amount that won't make you broke and would make it possible for us to work on future kits. The easiest and most secure way to do it is to press the button above and do it by PayPal. I appreciate your help." Endre-eNerd

Electronic vs. Acoustic: "... many people listen to the drums with their eyes."



"I'd like to add a few thoughts to the constant edrums vs. acoustic drums debate. I've been using both acoustic and electronic drums on stage for several years and I noticed something really funny. When I play an acoustic drum, most people say "yes, this is how a drum should sound", but when I play an electric pad, they immediately notice how 'unnatural the electric sound' is and that it sounds 'plastic'. Then they look really confused when I show them that the only difference between the 'acoustic' drum and the electric pad is the way they look, because they're both triggered and are connected to the same sound module and this difference gives some people the impression of 'hearing' something that may not exist at all. So, the moral of the story is that many people listen to the drums with their eyes and whatever has the shape of an acoustic drum will sound more authentic to them than anything else." Endre-eNerd


DRUM KITS

About the decay of the sounds

I didn't apply any muffling to the toms during the recording and they have a really long decay. This allows room for more versatile settings, as the sound can easily be shortened if necessary, but you can't make a short tom sample longer. The original long decay of the toms may not suit every musical context, adjust the envelope of the toms to your liking. Refer to the manual on how to do that.

About the kit layouts

The .dkit layouts are somewhat unusual, because I use acoustic cymbals on stage and also because the DrumIt Five has only four tom channels. This assignment can easily be rearranged, please refer to the manual for details on how to do that.

Vol. 1 - the RP1k Series

 

enerd 117891

 

 

What is RP1k?

RP1k stands for RP1000, which was the code name of the Radial Pro 1000 series drums manufactured by Peavey Electronics for about a decade starting from the mid-nineties. For more info on these fantastic instruments, see this article on endrehuszar.com and the video link on the left.

About the downloads

- Each zip file contains ten .dsnd files: kick, snare, 8", 10", 12", 14", 16 toms and cross stick and a detuned version of the snare from my RP1000 kit, plus one auxiliary sound from the existing library for the remaining one drum channel -such as a cowbell, electric snare or analog tom.

- The table above each download link lists the number of layers, filename and size of the RP1000 sounds in the zip file.

-The zips also contain a kit file (.dkit) which uses the sounds found in the same archive with my recommended settings.
