Hi guys, i would like to know more about saturation of real drums. Is there some free vst good enogh for a "brilliant" final sound? (Eventually, some suggestion how to find and download vst and some real drum single hits sample packs)
One of my favorite free saturation plugins is the "Tube Saturator Vintage" by Wave Arts. Check it out here: https://wavearts.com/products/plugins/tube-saturator-vintage/
I guess you are looking for a plugin that give's you a ready to go sound once you insert it rather than saturation.
If you do want saturation just use whatever your daw has, anything that creates distortion will do.
I for one don't use saturation on real drums.
As for drum samples I create my own but you can try some stuff from these guys :
They have some great stuff as far as drum samples go, velocity layered with rooms and overheads separately.
Thank you so much guys!
Hey bro, you might check this out.
Hey Neo, woooow i love how powerdrumkit works, so great! The only thing is i prefer to create from zero my loops, rare are the times i use preset ones. In any case, good suggestion, not excluded a use in the future!
I suppose you're aiming towards a kind of crisp sound on your snare when you talk about saturation and for that kind of "effect", even if it's more a treatment than an effect in this particular case, I would usually use tape saturation, and as mention before, the one that comes with your DAW should do the trick.
- Actually, 99% of the time, stock plugins will do just as good as fancy expensive plugins, it's just the way you use it.... -

As someone who has used stock plugins for years and finally upgraded to better ones...This is simply not true haha.
Hi Soap. I mean totally saturated drums. That kind of saturation you could find in some Chemical Brothers' songs. For example (nomen omen) "Saturate", has a cool drum saturation, check it. There are several kind of saturation, another brilliant example you can find in this italian rap song "Golgota" by Coma_Cose (here is the youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WKwyqJ9TcY)
@HenryPascal > Give Fabfilter Saturn and Soundtoys Decapitator a try... Also look for softube saturation ( which is free ), not sure it will saturate enough for what you need though... Gotta try...
I'm pretty sure in that particular case they used hardware... You can try processing your audio thru guitar fx unit too... I often process drums or synths thru my Helix, even though it's not initially made for that.
Thank you Soap, thank you so much!
