Kralc, a member of V.I.Control forum posted another free NI Kontakt drum instrument: Wooden Percussion.
“Wanting to try out sampling something with round robin for myself, I grabbed a couple loose pieces of wooden decking planks, and started smacking them round like an idiot.
Was good fun though. Hopefully now a little fun for someone else too.
Two white key octaves, with 4x rr. “
