|Now for over 15 years - The real Drum Samples source
The Drum Samples FAQ...
Q: What Filetype are the Samples ?
|Q: What Format are the Sample-Packs ?
A: The Sample-Packs are compressed ZIP or RAR files.
RAR is a compression format like ZIP or SITX but the files are much smaller.
If you are on MAC OS you can expand RAR with Stuffit Expander MAC (free version).
If you are on Windows OS here you can get Stuffit Expander WIN (free version).
Another possible help you can get from UnRarX for OS X (Thanks to Peter for Link)
or Unarchiver (Thanks to Morgan for Link).
|Q: Do you sell the samples ?
A: No, these samples can not be sold, they are royalty free / Public Domain.
All samples are made by some private people and offered for free.
The Donation for the larger Sets is only to cover the cost of Bandwith.
|Q: What Machine is the Graphic in the Head of the Site ?
A: This is the lovely Roland TR-606, sometimes called "Drumatix", from 1982.
A real essential Drumcomputer with his very own characteristic Sound.
It has been used by some Artists who brought us Chicago House Music and Acid.
|Q: I get an error on my Apple MAC with the ZIP Files, decompression failed, why ?
A: This seems to be an error within MAC OS decompression routines.
You can use Stuffit instead, it works fine.
|Q: Is the download legal ?
A: Yes, you can freely download all sounds. They are royalty free / Public Domain.
All Samples are coming from the Web and were freely downloadable without
any restrictions, or are contributions from Visitors.
But most of the original Source Websites are gone forever, because i am collecting
now for about 13 Years and anytime good sources are dying.
|Q: Why are you doing this Website ?
A: Most of the Samples, coming from Vintage Machines like LinnDrum, Sequential
Circuits Drumtraks or Roland CR-Series, are the fundamentals of all modern
Music. So i think, everyone has the right to access this basically and essentially
Sounds. They have to be saved and archived for the future as historic value.
|Q: Who are you ?
A: My Name is Kai, i am by now (Dec.2008) 36 years old and living in Germany.
In the early 90s i was producing some electronic music, but in 1997 i went to
Graphic Design Business. Anyway, my love for electronic music (Disco, House,
Electro...) is alway there, and i have a unique fascination with old Drum-Machines.
Here you can listen to one of my old Tracks:
Cesium Shine (Attention, unmastered, this can blast you PA System!)
|Q: I did not receive access to the ftp after donation, what can i do ?
A: After donation i send you access data to the ftp. But sometimes people write to me.
that they never received the message even after 2 or 3 times i send. I ask people
to check their spam folders but didnt get ANY response... In this case i cant do
anything about if my mail did not reach you, please contact me via ICQ at
|Q: Is there another Way to get the hidden Samples without a Donation ?
A: Yes, alternatively you can contribute some Drum Kit i dont have.
See list on the left or bring me something i dont even know...
|Q: I dont know Paypal, what is it ?
A: Its like an online Bank Account for paying worldwide. It costs you really nothing
if you only want to send some bucks as Donation. Only i have to pay some fee
as the money arrives in my account.
|Q: How do i use Paypal and donate ?
A: Simply click on the "Donate" button, anything else is shown after.
|Q: What means "Galactica RIP" ?
A: Galactica.de was the predecessor of samples.kb6.de. After megabox.de it was the
first Website i really began intensive offering of Drum Kits in 1997.
I sold Galactica.de in 2004 for about 3.000 Euro, a big mistake i thought after...
|Q: Do you sell a Sample-CD/DVD ?
A: No, because i can not guarantee that it arrives everywhere in the world by mail.
Postal services are often not reliable if you send something to the other side of
the Planet. I have done this 10 Years ago and had many problems.
