Perc Werks is a killer collection of over 1350 synthetic drum & percussion sounds. The majority of the disk is made of 137 kits, each containing a few sounds that work together well. Some of these are built around themes, such as the “noise kits”- which are made up of sounds created from processed noise of various types- others are grouped according to a musical style- such as the “techno kits” (note: the music-style names aren’t meant to be hard & fast rules, they’re just to give you an idea of the type of sounds contained within).

This disk contains 137 drum kits (each with one or two demo loops), a folder of synthetic percussion loops in 12 tempos, plus 3 folders of miscellaneous sounds (miscellaneous kicks, miscellaneous snares, & miscellaneous percussion sounds

Here is a list of keymaps and sample banks on this disk:

Drum Kits
